Nelson wins the NPD Tasman Trophy

Congratulations to the Seniors on their great win

On Saturday 21/7/2018, in truly appalling conditions, Nelson competed against Marist in the final of the NPD Tasman Trophy. It was a tough game and Nelson emerged the victors (16-6).

With the cup safely locked in the trophy cabinet the team can now reflect on a successful season built on a lot of hard work and real dedication.

Nelson coach Kade Heke said the boys were “absolutely stoked” to take home the championship. “There was a lot of effort from the boys.”

2018: our 150 th year

This year we celebrate the 150 th year since the birth of the Club, known at the time as the Nelson Football Club. The Club played a hybrid form of the game — a mixture of Association football and Melbourne Rules football (now known as Australian Rules Football) — until 1870 when Charles Monro introduced the club to rugby as we know it today and the club formally adopted the name Nelson Rugby Football Club.

There are a number of events throughout the year to celebrate our foundation as New Zealand’s oldest rugby club. Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for events and their dates.

Boks to kick off 2018 Rugby Championship against Argentina in Durban

Once again, the Boks will kick off their Rugby Championship campaign with back to back games against the Pumas.

The fixtures list for the 2018 Rugby Championship was revealed on Thursday, and the Springboks will kick off their campaign against Argentina at Kings Park in Durban.

The coastal city, along with Port Elizabeth and Pretoria will host South Africa’s home games in the competition who, soon after their opener, head off to Mendoza for the return leg against the Pumas, with Brisbane and Wellington next on the itinerary.

Just as was the case last year, Rassie Erasmus’ men will round off the competition with a return home, where they will take on Australia at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, before facing off against defending champions, New Zealand at altitude at Loftus Versfeld.

When does the 2018 Rugby Championship start?

The competition starts on Saturday 18 August, with the trans-Tasman derby between Wallabies and the All Blacks kicking off proceedings in Sydney.

On the some day, later in the afternoon, the Boks will host the Pumas, whom they managed to defeat home and away in last year’s edition, where they finished a disappointing third after failing to register a victory against the two other nations in the competition.

They did however come agonisingly close to victory on three occasions, as they drew twice against the Wallabies, before closing off their campaign with a close defeat to champions, New Zealand in a dead rubber at Newlands.

Nelson comedian Guy Williams announces the huge news that The All Blacks will play their first ever test match in the city in October 2018.

The All Blacks will play a test match at Nelson’s Trafalgar Park next year.

The Tasman Rugby Union is celebrating the biggest coup of its 11-year history after securing the hosting rights for an international fixture between the All Blacks and Argentina in Nelson.

Trafalgar Park hosted three matches at the 2011 Rugby World Cup featuring Italy, Australia, Russia and the United States, but this will be the first time that Nelson has hosted an All Blacks test.

Tasman Rugby Union chief executive Tony Lewis, left, and Nelson Regional Development Agency chief executive Mark Rawson at Trafalgar Park with plans for the 20,000 plus seating for next year’s All Blacks test.

Tasman chief executive Tony Lewis said the All Blacks would play Argentina on Saturday, September 8 as part of the 2018 Investec Rugby Championship.

Homegrown All Black Liam Squire will hope to be one of the stars lining up against Argentina at Nelson’s Trafalgar Park.

Tasman’s successful bid was a collaborative effort by the Tasman Rugby Union, Nelson regional Development Agency and Nelson City Council, with the majority of, as yet, unspecified funding coming from local private sector investment.

It was after reading former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson’s autobiography while on holiday in Fiji earlier this year that Lewis first considered the notion of bringing a test to Nelson.

“[Tyson] talked about that when he was at his best, he concentrated on putting all his energy into the big things, not the small things, and you get more reward,” Lewis said.

Lewis’ initial spark coincided with an email to all unions from the New Zealand Rugby Union’s general manager for planning and operations Nigel Cass asking for expressions of interest for hosting major matches.

The idea took root and with former Tasman president Shane Drummond and Nelson Regional Development Agency’s chief executive Mark Rawson quickly on board, a bid was put to the NZR which was officially accepted in May.

The bid is underwritten by the NCC and private investors, including Drummond, logging contractor Mike Fraser and logging marketer Paul Jensen who were the key in securing the test.

It will also mean expanding Trafalgar Park’s current seating capacity from 7000 to 21,000 with plans already well in place to accommodate that.

According to Lewis, the test match is the type of event that the Tasman region must aspire to host.

“For a long time, we’ve wanted to bring the first All Blacks test to the birthplace of rugby [in 1870] at the centre of New Zealand,” he said.

“The Tasman Rugby Union’s vision is to grow the game of rugby in the region and increase participation at all levels. We can’t think of a better way to inspire fans, young and old, than by bringing the All Blacks to Nelson to play their first ever rugby test in the region.

“The supporters will have an opportunity to see and engage with the All Blacks in our own back yard. This will be a huge boost for rugby in the region.”

“The key is that the New Zealand Rugby is guaranteed a return,” Lewis said.

Nelson mayor Rachel Reese said that the decision by the NZR to give Nelson hosting rights for the game was great news for the region and its rugby fans.

“People may have had doubts that a city our size could achieve the ultimate – an All Blacks test match – but we are consistently aiming for excellence and I’ve had confidence in our community that we’d achieve this historic moment,” Reese said.

Tickets will go on sale in April, 2018 and Tasman Rugby Union supporters, Makos 500 Club members and season ticket holders who purchase a 2018 Makos season package will be guaranteed a ticket. These will be available in September.
