Squad struggled with cancelled matches
Centurions selected a squad to play four games, the first being a pre-season game against our Centurion U18 team which was won by the U18 team 25—5.
However the other three games had to be cancelled due to a variety of reasons. The game against Tasman was cancelled because Nelson College had progressed to the final stages of the NZ Secondary Schools competition which meant that Tasman were unable to field a team and a suitable alternative could not be secured.
Both Auckland and Waikato withdrew based on their own funding constraints.
This was not a very satisfactory position for Centurions but hopefully we will be able to reinstate these matches next season.
The following players were selected for the 2019 season:
Avalon RFC.-Arthur Flux, Brett Hodgetts, Graham Cherry, Matthew Edmonds, Robert Daly, Paddy Crombie Jason Harris, Damien Austin-Adams.
Upper Hutt RFC.-Thomas Hunter, Jackson Ryan, Peter O’Reilly, James Mainwaring.
Wellington RFC-Tom Belworthy, Todd Abler, Jeremy Hargreaves, Ratu Karamaena, Jonnie Haddon,
MSP RFC-Jackson Martin
Johnsonville-RFC Shane Mathie, Tony Natoli.
HOBM RFC-Ben Nicolson, Caleb Owczarek
OBU RFC-Keaton William
Kapiti RFC-Brady Murland, Mohi Te One
