    • Higgins signs on with Hurricanes for next two seasons
      • Riley Higgins scoring one of his two tries in this year’s Jubilee Cup final. Norths beat Petone 23-20. PHOTO: Car Earlier this season, Riley Higgins joined a select group by making his Super Rugby debut before his National Provincial Championship one. Higgins came off the bench against the Fijian Drua in Wellington, also becoming one...

    • Hurricanes U16s tournament this week in Upper Hutt
      • After two disrupted years, the Hurricanes U16s tournament returns in full this week, to be played at the new Campus of Sport and Innovation (CIS) on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. As always, the teams are split into two divisions. The Division 1 teams play for the Don Broughton Shield and the Division 2 sides for...

    • Aisle be Back: Women’s World Cup, Lions and All Blacks
      • By Kevin McCarthy I used to live in Auckland for a few years. I used to meet people there who literally had no conception there was a country below the Manukau Harbour. And certainly, they could find no reason to go there. They’d go to Melbourne a lot though. Well, they’ll be well served with...

    • Jonah Lomu remembered in Lions and Steelers match on Sunday
      • Billy Proctor, Pepesana Patafilo and TJ Perenara in action in last weekend’s Ranfurly Shield defence against Waikato. There is no rugby in Wellington this weekend. The closest fans can travel to get their fix is Levin where Horowhenua-Kapiti host the Whanganui Butcher Boys in their seventh round Heartland Championship fixture at 2.30pm. The Hurricanes U16...

    • Desperation, Defence, Delany
      • By Adam Julian The last time Wellington held opponents try-less in consecutive games before 2022 was in 1999. Caleb Delany wasn’t even born in 1999 but the blindside flanker has been an integral part of a new-found Lions fortress. The Ranfurly Shield is safe for the summer following a 34-6 account of Waikato on Saturday. ...

    • Pioneers of rugby in Wellington 031: Ned Hughes
      • E.E. (Ned Hughes) is somewhat a player of mystery. He has the distinction of being the ‘oldest All Black’ when he played the first two tests against the Springboks on 13 and 27 August 1921. His birthdate is listed as 26 April 1881, so in round terms he was 40 years and four months old...

    • Aisle be Back: Bledisloe 2.0
      • By Kevin McCarthy Considering where they were a month or so ago, the All Blacks could almost consider part two of the international season a success if they win the Rugby Championship. Whether others will depends largely on what you thought, oh, about a month ago. Remove the historic Argentinian victory on New Zealand soil,...

    • Breakneck Japan out to Surprise at World Cup
      • By Adam Julian Images supplied Sakura is the national flower of Japan, the cherry blossom which represents a time of renewal and optimism. It’s also the name of the Japanese women’s rugby team – a team with good reason for optimism ahead of the World Cup starting in New Zealand on October 8. Japan is...

    • Pek propping up Wellington
      • Pek Cowan and the Ranfurly Shield, at the Hutt Valley High School Rugby Awards on Tuesday night this week, where he coaches the school’s U15 team.  By Adam Julian Pek Cowan was tentative about playing any rugby in 2022. The 36-year old had little to prove following 10 tests for the Wallabies, 130 games for...

    • Pioneers of rugby in Wellington: 030 George Aitken
      • One of Buller High School’s favourite sons, the multi-talented George Aitken captained his then Westport District High School’s First XV aged 14 and first represented Buller as a 16-year-old in 1914. He played for his home province for two seasons, before moving to Wellington and bursting on to the Wellington club, university and provincial rugby...

    • Resilient Rory Woods looking forward to South African tour
      • Rory Woods playing for the Wellington Academy last year. He has since moved to join the Northland Academy and has recently been selected in the New Zealand U19s for their tour which kicks off overnight on Monday in South Africa.

    • At Last, the Ranfurly Shield is back
      • After 4,767 days the Ranfurly Shield is finally back in Wellington following the Lions 19-12 victory over Hawke’s Bay at McLean Park in Napier. A TJ  Perenara try and four penalties and a conversion to first-five Aidan Morgan was enough to blunt an unusually inaccurate Hawke’s Bay whose points were scored via four Lincoln McClutchie...

    • Wellington wins Ranfurly Shield to start 11th tenure
      • The Wellington province’s 11th Ranfurly Shield reign started at 8.45pm on Saturday night Napier Standard Time. The Wellington Lions held on to beat the Hawke’s Bay Magpies 19-12 in a typical last-gasp thriller between these sides for the Ranfurly Shield. But unlike 1967, there were no death-knock heroics for the Hawke’s Bay defenders. Putting aside...

    • Aisle be Back: A timeless Bledisloe Cup win
      • By Kevin McCarthy Karma so they say, is a B****. Or a B******. It will get you in the end. This time it happened strangely to the Wallabies, on a Thursday evening, at a funnily named action hero stadium in Melbourne, with a covered roof but some early artificial cloud cover. The karma in question...

    • Pioneers of rugby in Wellington: 029 Billy Wallace
      • Carbine was a popular racehorse who won 33 of 43 starts including the 1890 Melbourne Cup and failed to place only once and that was because of an injured hoof. In 1892 Carbine sired a Colt named Wallace, so named after the champion’s owner Donald Wallace. Carbine’s progeny went on to become a champion in...

    • Wellington U19s v Manawatu U19s try scoring highlights
      • The Wellington U19s retained the Hurricanes Youth Council’s Central Region Shield with a 48-15 win over the Manawatu U19s at Lyndhurst Park, Tawa, on Saturday 10 September. The Wellington U19s led 19-7 at halftime, and then 24-15 early in the second half, but pulled away towards the end of the game to win well. Scoring...

    • Representative rugby rolls on this weekend
      • Update 1: The 2022 representative season reaches its peak this weekend in terms of teams in action and games played. Starting today at the new Campus of Innovation and Sport (CIS) turf and continuing through to Sunday afternoon at Wellington Stadium, there is much to look forward to in Wellington and the lower North Island...
