Our Teams

At Waimea Old Boys Rugby Football Club, we train the youngsters right from the age of 5 years old. With our quality coaching, these youngsters move up the grades, and with good training and discipline, can go on to represent the Waimea Old Boys Club in the provincial teams. We have a good representation of players in the Tasman Bay Makos: James Lowe and Jeff Lepa. Playing in Super Rugby for 2016 are James Lowe – Chiefs, Sam Prattley – Blues, Billy Guyton – Blues, Pete Samu – Crusaders, Marty Banks – Highlanders.
