2017 Football Teams

NOTE: The reserve squad will play for both A and B teams across the season (possibly the C when needed).  There is a permanent spot up for grabs in the A team which we will seek to fill from the reserve squad over the first few weeks, this will be according to the strengths they will bring to the team and how well they communicate positively on and off the field.  All team and squad members should have a decent amount of game time. Team captains will also be selected on the above strengths.

Let's up our game New Zealand
By Penelope

I am very disappointed that there are not that many recognised events on Waitangi day.
It should be one of the biggest celebrations in New Zealand. We celebrate Chinese New Year and St Patrick's day more than our own national day. America is proud to celebrate thanksgiving, Australia celebrates Australia day we in New Zealand, need to step up our game and be proud of Waitangi day and celebrate it more. Waitangi day should be a holiday where we show off our national pride…
