7 PRESIDENT S REPORT 2011 has been a significant year in Manawatu s rugby history. 125 years of rugby in the Manawatu was celebrated as a start to what became a very successful ITM Cup campaign for the Turbos. A large contingent of past players and administrators were here to celebrate the occasion and the Turbos kicked their season off with a fine win over Hawke s Bay to please the old timers. It was an outstanding achievement by the Turbos to play through the competition, achieve all of the teams goals for the year and top it off by hosting a final here in Palmerston North. The success of the team certainly generated significant public interest and captured the support of many from throughout New Zealand. The Union was surprised by the amount of correspondence received from ex- pat Kiwis living overseas. It was a real credit to the Dave Rennie, Jason O Hallaron, Wesley Clarke and the players. The year can also be celebrated as one that showed a significant profit on the back of some very difficult previous years. The Board and staff of the Union have worked hard to achieve these goals. The success of the Turbos has been a major contributor to this financial improvement We should also acknowledge the work of Board member Shane O Brien in the building of the house as a fundraising venue for the Union. When it comes on sale later in 2012, it will provide much needed funds for the development of rugby in our province. Significant contributions have been made by many businesses and individuals and we acknowledge their involvement. A full list of these people may be found on the promotional website. Rugby World Cup was an impressive tournament and New Zealand wide event. The New Zealand Rugby Union should be congratulated in successfully bringing this event to New Zealand and providing Manawatu an opportunity to host two games in our province. Martin Sneddon and his team ran a very slick operation and have provided a real legacy for the future development of rugby in the provinces. At a local level, I acknowledge the extra commitment provided by our own staff in making the games in Palmerston North a success. The whole province got in behind the teams and the matches and certainly put us on the world stage. With the successful management and achievements in the area of club and school rugby, our Union is in good shape to grow the game and the strength of the Manawatu Rugby Union. With sound governance, management and organisation currently experienced, the future looks bright. Clubs must pick- up the lead and provide strong support and involvement. Finally, I thank the coaches and referees for their contribution to our game. They play a vital part in Manawatu Rugby and for the future of the game. In closing, I take this opportunity to that the any sponsors and business partners who continue to promote Manawatu Rugby at the professional level. I feel they are starting to reap the rewards of many years of support. We can all look forward to further success in 2012 as the Union builds on this year s achievements. Terry Clare President 5

8 CHAIRMAN/CEO REPORT 2011 can be viewed as a significant milestone in Manawatu Rugby Union history. The 125 th year of rugby was celebrated with success in more ways than one. The year commenced with a change to the format of club rugby. With the ITM Cup competition played in a condensed window in order to accommodate Rugby World Cup later in the year, it was decided to extend the club season so that it overlapped the domestic competition. This kept players fit and ready should the call have come to cover an injury as the Turbos took to the field, instead of having a development team as in previous years. The Union also decided not to field an Under 18 representative team in 2011 as well. This decision was based on the fact that both Palmerston North Boys High School and Feilding High School had full calendars in their own respective school competitions, and PNBHS had an overseas trip planned late in the season for their first XV. The best of school players were not going to be available to play representative rugby for the province. The senior club rugby competition was won by Varsity for the second year in a row, taking out the Hankins Shield. The final was a hard fought battle against Te Kawau, ending in a point difference. The Centennial Shield became the trophy for the winner of the round- robin matches and was also won by Te Kawau. It was pleasing to see Bush win the Senior 2 nd competition, despite a decline in player numbers in Sadly the Bush Club has decided to play their senior rugby in the Wairarapa- Bush competition in The loss of a club is hardly something Manawatu wishes to see, but it is still the view of the Manawatu Rugby Union board that the Club Rugby Council should determine the competitions they play in and the rules that are associated with them. The Board is supportive of the decisions that have been made. The Women s Representative team had a tough season this year but with the NZRU placing greater interest in developing women s rugby in 2012, Manawatu is well placed to raise the bar in this competition. Women s sevens is being introduced with a national team being selected to participate in the 2016 Olympic Games at Rio de Janeiro. This adds a real incentive for women in our region to take a greater interest in the development of their game. The Schoolgirls team is developing nicely at the present time and will add to the strength of women s rugby in the future. Women will also be included in the National Sevens Competition held in Queenstown from January The Manawatu Men s sevens team continues to experience success at the National Sevens tournament. In 2011 the team won the bowl final in grand style. Tomasi Cama was once again named in the New Zealand Sevens team and played in the world series during the year. He was nominated as one of three players to receive the national player of the year award. We congratulate him for this success and his wonderful contribution to New Zealand Sevens over a long period of time. It was pleasing to see how well the Under 20 side went this year, winning all their games until meeting Wellington in the final of the Hurricanes regional tournament. This holds the Union in great shape for our future in the ITM Cup Competition. Likewise, our U13 and U14 teams had successful seasons this year, winning their share of games during their respective competitions. We extend our thanks to the coaches, managers and referees who have made these teams and matches possible. The Union is richer for it. Congratulations is extended to Michael Gardner, Tepasu Thomas and Hamish Northcott who all got called into the New Zealand Under 20 s training camp in November. We will watch their development with a lot of interest. Congratulations also to Jason Emery, Ben Edwards and Ngani Laumepe in making the NZ Secondary Schools team. In 2011, Jason O Halloran was one of the NZ Under 20 s coaches who won the world tournament in Argentina. 6

9 It is worthy of note, the strength of the Manawatu Junior Rugby Board in organising and managing junior rugby in our province. This organisation does a great job in developing children s interest in rugby from the very young through to the Under 13 grades. This is also enhanced by school participation in rippa rugby tournaments organised by the MRU community rugby staff. The highlight of the year was the stellar season the Manawatu Turbos had. In Dave Rennie s final year coaching the side, the team set goals of winning all home matches, to beat Hawke s Bay in the 125 year celebration match, and to beat Wellington at Westpac Stadium. All goals were achieved. With 10 matches and a final to be played over eight weeks, there was a lot of care needed in managing the players through the competition. Unlike the previous year, few injuries were encountered, and the team went on to win the Championship Competition, gaining 33 competition points, equal to that of Canterbury and Waikato who were winner and runner- up in the Premier competition. Who would have thought that the Turbos would take the field at FMG Stadium and beat Waikato in one of the cross- over matches by 52 to 13. This result certainly put Manawatu on the map and had every media source in New Zealand taking a lot of interest in the province. It was disappointing for the team to be beaten in the final against Hawke s Bay, and therefore not get the opportunity to be promoted to the Premier competition in From a consolidation point of view, this may not have been a bad outcome and gives the team the opportunity to do it all again in 2012 although other teams will be more weary of them. A number of significant personal achievements emerged as a result of the success of the team during the year. Of note was the call up of Aaron Cruden to the All Blacks World Cup team part way through the competition. He went on to play in the final where he was forced off the field with a significant knee injury. Such was his success this year, that he was named Manawatu Sportsperson of the Year and New Zealand Rugby s ITM Cup Player of the Year. Aaron was instrumental in much of the success of the team with his silky back play and kicking abilities. Captain, Nick Crosswell showed his ability to lead the team during the season. He was presented with the Turbos trophy as Team of the Year at the Sport Manawatu end of year dinner. Dave Rennie has named as head coach of the Chiefs super rugby franchise for 2012, a promotion that is well earned and highlights the significant success and contribution he has had with the Manawatu Turbos since Dave will be missed from our midst, after having met a tough assignment in bringing Manawatu rugby into a new era of professional rugby. We are indebted for his services and trust that Jason O Halloran will step into Dave s shoes and continue with the success of the Turbos. The end of season dinner saw James Oliver receive the Personality of the Year award, Nehe Milner- Skudder the Rookie of the Year award, and Most Valuable Players of the Year went to Aaron Smith and Ma afu Fia. All of these players continue to be part of the Turbos in The success of the Turbos this year gave rise to seven players being named in 2012 Super Rugby Squads. Nick Crosswell, Aaron Smith, Doug Tietjens and Ma afu Fia will all play for the Highlanders and Aaron Cruden, Mike Fitzgerald and Aseli Tikoiratuma were named in the Chiefs squad. We congratulate Dave Rennie and his Assistant Coaches, Jason O Halloran and Wesley Clarke for their success with this team this year. We also acknowledge the significant contribution of trainer, Scott Pinfold and the rest of the Turbos management who kept the team to the level of fitness required to achieve success. A further milestone during 2012 was the announcement of long- time supporter and contributor to Manawatu Rugby, Sir Pat Higgins who was knighted in the Queen s Birthday honours list. Sir Pat and Lady Kaye have provided scholarship funding for a number of years to young up and coming school leavers showing promise in rugby. They were also joined by an additional contributor this year in 7

10 Gerald and Vivienne Gillespie who added to the fund significantly. This is having a major influence over Manawatu players staying in the province to study and play their rugby. As part of the Rugby World Cup legacy, Past President, All Black and Manawatu player, Sam Strahan was named as Manawatu s Rugby Legend. At the Manawatu Sports Awards dinner Sam was also inducted as Manawatu Legend of Sport along with Sir Patrick Higgins. It is wonderful to see these men recognised for the significant contribution made to rugby and sport in the region. In the area of Management and Governance, the Manawatu Rugby Union Board set some fairly hefty goals for the year, and has achieved 80% of the performance targets for the year. Of note is the turn round in the financial performance of the Union. The Union ended the year with an operating surplus of $136,065. It was achieved on the back of a very tight economy. It is appropriate to acknowledge the tremendous contribution made by a large number of businesses throughout the region. The sponsorship revenue was down on that gained in previous years, but probably reflects the current economy. The Higgins Group and Steelfort continue to be major business partners of the Manawatu Rugby Union. We are indebted to them for their on- going support and thank them. We hope that all sponsors and business partners of the Union see the investment as worthwhile and in support of their business objectives. Throughout the year, the Board has engaged in a major house building project. Lead by Board member, Shane O Brien, the project is in its final stages of completion and should be on sale during We thank Shane and all the various trading firms who have been involved for their offers of labour and building materials to get the project completed. Once sold, the Union will be in a better financial position to contribute to the development of rugby in many different ways. Finally, we thank the board, staff, clubs, school and junior councils for your input and achievements during the year. We now look forward to the future with hope and excitement.

11 CLUB RUGBY COUNCIL After being involved in the Club Rugby Council for the last 4 years, it was a great privilege to be Chairman of the Council for the 2011 season. I see real value in the Council as it gives us all an opportunity to voice concerns and raise recommendations for the development of game and how it affects our clubs. One thing that I have learnt whilst being involved in the Club Rugby Council is that it is almost impossible to get every club to agree. However, I firmly believe that the democratic nature of how the Council is set up is extremely fair. In 2011 we have seen real progress made with the format of the Senior 1 and 2 competitions being set for 2012 and hopefully we now have a format that can be left alone for years to come. In 2012 we will see a 10 team mirrored competition that will allow representative players to play for the duration of the Senior 1 club competition. It is my view that this format is long overdue. Clubs have had to deal with issues such as costs of sending two sides to different venues, player availability and hosting clubs not seeing the benefits of hosting two teams and much needed food and drink revenue being missed. The other aspect of the 2012 Senior 1 competition which will benefit all is the inclusion of Turbo players for the whole competition. This can only improve the quality of product that is being produced on the pitch. Players will see the benefits as it should increase their skills and will increase competition for places amongst squads. Spectators will see a more attractive product and much needed competition sponsors will get far better value for money with greater exposure of their product to a wider audience. At Massey we have made the last three finals yet we have had Turbo contracted players that have not been allowed to play in any of the finals and this has been a frustration for these players. There would be an outcry if All Blacks players where pulled out of Super Rugby right at the business end of the competition and I see no reason why Club Rugby should be any different. 9

12 Looking back at the 2011 competition we witnessed a dramatic final with Varsity just edging out Te Kawau with the final play of the game. The treatment of the officials at the end of the game was unfortunate. I hope that this is not repeated and officials must always be respected as without the hard work put in by referees and other volunteers we would simply have no product. In 2011 the Operational Support Committee had made the recommendation that the Jubilee Cup be awarded at the end of the two rounds of competition instead of the conclusion of round one. This caused some grievance at Te Kawau at the end of round one and as such 2012 competition will go back to the original format of the Jubilee Cup being awarded at the conclusion of round one and the Centennial Shield being reintroduced at the end of round two. Congratulations must be given to The Stags whom won the Abraham Cup for best overall club in I would also like to pass on my congratulations to Bush in winning the Senior 2 competition. On a more serious matter, at the time of writing this we are unsure as to whether Bush will be participating in the Manawatu competition as a proposal for them to be admitted into the Senior 1 competition was rejected in a narrow vote. I commend the Bush club in how they performed in 2011 and I do believe that their long term future will be in the Senior 1 competition so I hope that they do persist with Manawatu Rugby and they are still involved in our province. This leads me to the matter of the Colts competition. This is probably going to be the Club Rugby Council s biggest challenge looking ahead. Too many clubs struggle in developing a Colts team. I can especially sympathize with smaller rural clubs where there are simply fewer younger people to call upon. Players are being thrown into Senior 1 competition at a younger age which tells me that players are giving up the game at a younger age. The Club Rugby Council recently voted in favour of changing the Senior 1 criteria effective from 2013 onwards. Club will only be required to have at least one supporting team (senior or colts) in that particular year. Finally I would like to thank Tony s Tyre Service for their sponsorship and support of Club Rugby. I would also like to thank the support we get from John Knowles and Martin Brady. Outgoing Community Rugby Manager Chris Ricketts must also get mention for the work he has put into Manawatu Club Rugby and I am sure that all Club Representatives will wish him well in his future career.

13 MANAWATU TURBOS ITM CUP TEAM 2011 marked the 125 th Jubilee Celebrations of the Manawatu Rugby Football Union. As such, we were thrilled to produce a season for which all players, staff, sponsors and supporters can be proud of. The success of the season was in no small part down to having a hugely loyal group of sponsors, led by the Higgins Group, who continue to support the Turbos and make it possible for local rugby talent to represent our proud province. The 2011 ITM Cup was split into two divisions of seven teams. The Turbos were to play in the Championship and would also have four cross over games against teams from the Premiership. Our schedule, including hosting the Championship Final, was concluded in the space of eight weeks. In preparation for the unique requirements of such a season we embarked on four pre- season games. Two of these were played against NZ Universities on the 2 May and Hawkes Bay Saracens on the 10 May under the Evergreens banner. Although both of these games resulted in losses, there were great opportunities for coaches to look at some fringe contenders prior to the announcement of the official Turbos squad on 1 July.. This announcement was preceded by a game against Wellington on 29 June as the Turbos. Although beaten by a last minute try 10-7 the team had dominated large portions of the game and took a great deal of confidence out of the performance. Following the official announcement of the 2011 Turbos squad, players and management travelled to Rotorua for a joint training camp with Auckland. Auckland, a Premiership team, were not to play the Turbos in the 2011 season and as such the opportunity to train and share ideas with a quality opposition was invaluable. Dave Rennie s association with Auckland coach Mark Anscombe as NZU20s coaches for the previous two seasons was crucial in putting the camp together. The confidence born out from the contact sessions done with Auckland was instrumental in our pack developing a hard edge for the season ahead. Given the momentum gained through this camp we believe a similar endeavour prior to the 2012 ITM Cup would be an ideal preparation for the Turbos. The camp also enabled us some time to devote to goal setting for the ITM Cup and a discussion around standards and values for the unique season ahead. The team set some lofty goals: To win the 125 th Celebration game against Hawke s Bay. To win all our home games. To win on the road. To gather enough competition points to contest the final. After three days in camp we headed home for our final pre- season hitout against Bay of Plenty, who again we were not to play in the 2011 ITM Cup. We were handed a lesson in intensity, physicality and converting pressure into points by a hungry BOP team who had been beaten a week earlier by Hawke s Bay. The final score read BOP 33 Turbos 19. In reality the heavy workload of the camp had taken the edge of us physically, but this was a very valuable lesson in standards required for ITM Cup rugby. The following week the Turbos played Hawke s Bay in the opening round of the Championship Division of the 2011 ITM Cup. This game would be the centre piece of the 125 th Jubilee Celebrations of the Manawatu Rugby Football Union and as such the players were keen to perform in a manner that would befit the presence of the many legends of Manawatu rugby present that day. A balance of enterprise, hard work, maturity and inspiration culminated in a victory in front of an excellent crowd at FMG Stadium which would later adopt the nick name The Boneyard. 11

15 Whilst sparing the details of each match I would like to acknowledge some milestones achieved by the 2011 Manawatu Turbos. Beat Hawkes Bay for the first time since Beat Northland for the first time since Beat Wellington in Wellington for the first time in 124 years. Beat Tasman for the first time in their existence. The Turbos won three of their four cross over games. Won seven out of ten round robin games. Victories over Northland, Taranaki, Waikato and Hawkes Bay were the first under the Turbos banner. Hosting the Championship Final was the catalyst for a huge showing of regional pride from the wider Manawatu community and we thank them for their unwavering support of their team, the Turbos. Whilst disappointed not to have acheived the result the team had desired we believe that being part of such an occasion will be a huge benefit to our players when faced with such occasions in the future. Primarily the success of the team was down to the players collective resolve to represent the community in a manner which was reflective of the character of Manawatu people: Honest, hard working and humble. In this regard players and coaches could not have chosen a better leader for the group than Nick Crosswell. Nick epitomizes and lives these values and was at all times a credit to his team mates, family and province. Behind the scenes was a co- ordinated and hard working management team. The compact nature of the competition put a premium on keeping players fresh and fit for selection. Scott Pinfold s work in physically preparing the playing squad and driving much of the recovery protocols, which were central to maintaining a fit squad, was crucial to our final result. Likewise the support of Fiona O Connor and Chli NiChoisdealbha from Churchyard Physio enabled coaches the best advice possible when balancing squad selections game to game. Dr Ra Durie is regularly available to our players and his wealth of knowledge and timely assessment of gameday injuries provides crucial information to coaches at pressure moments in games. We are fortunate to have someone as widely respected as Ra to be part of our group. Murray Muzza Signal is a massive contributor to the success of the team. Working outside of his daily job on a volunteer basis Muzza has huge respect from players and management for his work ethic and passion for the Turbos. He is often accompanied by Warren Stent our masseur, who outside of his core duties often picks up the slack on game day to assure things run smoothly. Farah Palmer provides the players with great insight as Professional Development Manager. She is innovative, well connected in the local community as well as having an excellent affinity with the pressures associated with high level rugby players after her successes as leader of the Black Ferns. Farah s work helps the players maintain that crucial balance between rugby and life outside the white lines. Dave Spence has been Turbos Manager for two seasons and will take up a business opportunity next season which will not allow him to continue. Spencey is a valued member of management with a quick wit and a genuine ability to grow relationships with key stakeholders. We wish him all the best for the future. Dave Rennie is a man with massive mana in the local community. His work ethic is huge. From co- ordinating the Freshman Academy to assisting local club coaches, supporting the Manawatu Rugby Academy and coaching the Turbos Dave s influence on the direction of rugby in the Manawatu since his arrival in 2006 has been immense. His belief in supporting local rugby talent first and providing a 13

16 pathway into the professional game highlights a long term vision which is now bearing fruit. On behalf of Wesley Clarke and myself I would like to thank Dave for all his wise council during the 2011 ITM Cup and for the privilege of working alongside him over the past four years. We could not have wished for a better mentor as two young coaches. All the best with the Chiefs Dave! A big thank you also to the Board of the Manawatu Rugby Football Union who saw the merits in taking on three coaches for the 2011 ITM Cup as a succession plan despite the associated financial pressure of such a decision. It would be remiss not to acknowledge some individual achievements. Congratulations to the following seven players who have gained selection in Super 15 squads for 2012: Nick Crosswell, Aaron Cruden, Ma afu Fia, Mike Fitzgerald, Aaron Smith, Doug Tietjens and Aseli Tikoirotuma. Congratulations to Junior Tomasi Cama on his selection in the New Zealand Sevens team and subsequent nomination for the IRB World Sevens Player of the Year Award. On behalf of all associated with Manawatu rugby I would like to congratulate Rugby World Cup Champion Aaron Cruden on his outstanding efforts for the All Blacks during the knockout stages of the World Cup. We are all hugely proud of the character Aaron has displayed over a challenging season. He performed with distinction in the second half of the Hurricanes season before turning on some virtuoso performances in the ITM Cup. Aaron topped it all off with some assured rugby including a composed and gutsy semifinal performance against the Wallabies that was central to an outstanding All Black effort. We look forward to seeing a lot more of Aaron in a black jersey. Finally the team would like to thank the support of the many local businesses who make it possible for us to represent Manawatu on the national stage. Your efforts are much appreciated! Thank you also to the many supporters who made 2011 such a special season and all the players, parents and volunteers who help support the game of rugby in the Manawatu. We look forward to your continued support in Jason O Halloran Manawatu Turbos Head Coach 14

The reintroduction of the Women s nationwide NPC competition was a major draw card in getting players to commit to training and playing. Their programme was extended to include more pre- season games than normal in order to prepare the players for the step up in level. The NPC did not start well with a heavy loss to eventual winners Canterbury but the team kept working and kept improving ending the season with a draw against Otago and a narrow loss to Hawke s Bay. Manawatu Sevens Head Coach Assistant Coach Manager Trainer Paul Claridge Stu Ross Mike Dravitski Scott Pinfold The Manawatu Sevens team finished sixth at the Pub Charity National Sevens in Queenstown over the weekend. Despite the loss in the final Manawatu did manage a satisfying 24-7 victory over the eventual winners, Auckland. Along with the first day win over the Auks, Manawatu recorded a commanding 38-7 victory over Mid Canterbury and came back from 14 points down to draw with Hawke's Bay. Manawatu dropped out of the cup competition with a 31-5 loss to Otago in the cup quarterfinal before beating Wellington to book a spot in the plate final against Taranaki. 15

The team participated in the HYRC competition playing 3 games in the A Division against Wellington, Taranaki and Hawke s Bay. The team performed outstandingly during the season, with players enjoying the style of rugby they were encouraged to play. Making the finals without losing a game during pre- season was an outstanding achievement. Unfortunately they couldn t go all the way narrowly missing out to Wellington in the final. Overall an outstanding season and a great reflection of the caliber of players and coaches we have in the province.
