Today In History


1 August

1981: Rookie Poneke first five-eighth Ross Bond is the hero, kicking the match winning dropped goal to give Poneke an 11-10 Jubilee Cup win over MSP. Prolific try scoring wing Wayne Gray scores to put MSP ahead, before Bond pots from 30 metres in the 75th minute.
1992: Petone captain and utility back Naera Parata retires from club rugby after helping his side achieve the Swindale Shield-Jubilee Cup double, beating Poneke 18-9. With the wind, Petone race to an 18-0 lead at halftime and hold on well throughout the second spell. For Poneke, it’s their second successive defeat in the final after losing to Hutt Old Boys last year.
1993: MSP beat Avalon 23-3 and Petone beat Harlequins 21-14 in the Jubilee Cup semi-finals. MSP win comfortably enough against Avalon, but Petone’s playoff victory, in front of 2,500 people, is much closer. Harlequins wing Alaska Taula going close to scoring at the end and forcing extra time. MSP win the final against Petone the following week.
2009:Marist St. Pat's and Northern United will square off in next Sunday's Jubilee Cup final in a repeat of last year after both winning their semi-finals away from home against Petone and Poneke respectively. At the Petone Rec, MSP toppled their great rivals Petone 15-8, while Norths slayed top qualifiers Poneke 30-10 at Kilbirnie Park to set up a re-run of last year's final that was drawn and shared between the two clubs For Norths, it’s the steady boot of fullback James So'oialo, with three vital penalties, and the brilliance of centre sensation Alaptai Leiua that takes the game away from Poneke. Leiua breaks the game open on halftime with the first of his two tries, his 18th and 19th of the season in 17 games to date.
