Darryl Phillips Motor Company Seniors
March 30, 2016
To all our valued Sponsors
After nearly five months of preseason fitness and training the first round of the Luisetti Combined competition has kicked off, this was played on 25th of March
We were supported by a fantastic crowd at home and the team played some great rugby against a team we haven’t beaten for a while, Southern Seniors.
The game kicked off and after 15 mins the Darryl Phillips Motor Company Celtic senior side were up by 22 points to 0, three tries and a penalty. Southern then came back at us and managed to hold onto the ball for long periods of time, starving us of possession. We allowed them back into the game and they scored two tries and kicked a penalty. Celtic then made the most of their opportunities to score another two tries and end up with a win 32 to 15. A great start to the season but with plenty to work on.
Try scorers were Danny Hurley, Nathan McCLoy, Joe Peters, Christian Vainere and Hamish Finnie. Hushton Tohovaka two conversions and a penalty.
This season we have a points system for our player of the day that accumulate to become our player of the season. This week Sam Watt received top position with 3 points, Angus Lindsay with 2 points and Matthew Winter 1 Point.
This weekend we play Rakaia at Rakaia domain with a 2.30 kick off. This will be a great match up and we look forward to a great result.
To all our fantastic sponsors we want to say a huge thank you because without you none of what we have achieved would be possible. Our boys and management team look fantastic. We will be having a day soon for all our sponsors which will coincide with club day at Celtic. More about this in the next newsletter. All our sponsors are always welcome to join us on any of our away games and to come on the bus with us. Please contact any one of us and we will give you the details of when and where we are leaving from. Our boys enjoy the support and home or away appreciate your presence. Please come and have a refreshment after the game and listen to the after match speeches
Many thanks for your support and we look forward to sending you our season updates as they happen
