The year 5 and 6 International themed Super 8’s tournament at the Park Sports ground on Wednesday October 23rd had plenty of action and excitement for all involved!
Douglas Park School playing under the West Indies banner ran out tournament champs beating St Mary’s of Carterton playing as New Zealand in the final.
Late entrants Fernridge (Australia) pipped St Patricks (Pakistan) for 3rd place while Opaki (India) had to fight off the spirited Hadlow (England) for 5th
MPS (Sri Lanka) and Carterton (South Africa) battled it out for 7th with the Sri Lankans handing the wooden spoon to the South Africans!
Well done to everyone who took part and a massive shout out to the teachers, parents, umpires (Darren Dingle, Darin Towgood, Robbie Elphick and Mark Brown) and grounds man (Brayden Rawlinson) for assisting with delivery!
We hope to turn this into an annual event and look forward to seeing everyone again next year!

A strong Napier Boys High School side continued a wonderful season by turning aside the best that Wairarapa could offer in a Gillette Cup match played in Napier.
Rathkeale College boast a proud record in Gillette Cup history (having made the finals on three occasions) but this year they found themselves up against an impressive team from the Hawkes Bay.
Batting first, Rathkeale were never allowed to settle and it wasn’t surprising that they failed to complete their allotted 50 overs. Wickets fell steadily under the pressure exerted by Stoyanoff, Sutton, Lennox and Donaldson. With the score reaching 80-7, it seemed that 100 would be a good total. A brave 54 (9 fours) from the young Liam Burling was the highlight of the Rathkeale batting. Along with the ever reliable Ryan Tonkin (16) they were able to keep the game going for another 18 overs to put some respectablility (and hope) into the final total of 147.
Napier BHS made no race of the target set, reaching the total 1 down inside 27 overs. An impressive 93 notout from J Lennox was the highlight of the innings. Best of the Rathkeale bowlers were George Deans and John Ryan (who claimed the only wicket to fall).

Below you can see the scoreboard from the first day’s play of the McBride Peterson Cup match played between the two colleges. A good partnership between Jack Wakeling and Tane Workman thwarted the Rathkeale attack. Rathkeale batted well for 21 overs to see out the day’s play.
The annual clash between the two top College teams in the Wairarapa petered out to a tame draw after a promising first day saw the two sides evenly matched.
Resuming on the second day at 55 – 0 in reply to Wai Col’s 222, Rathkeale batted steadily through to reach 238 – 8 before declaring. With just 44 overs remaining in the match Wairarapa College batted positively to reach 85 – 2 before it was agreed that there was no chance of a result.
This was a match in which the wicket was the winner. It was extremely difficult for the bowlers to penetrate as indicated by the scores. This made the effort of Ryan Tonkin who took 7 – 88 all the more meritorious. He earnt himself a place on the honours board.
Despite being defeated by St Pauls Collegiate in a one day match prior to this fixture, Rathkeale continue to show pleasing improvement.
Rathkeale 258 – 5
H. Clinton-Baker 58, G. Deans 48, M. McKenzie 47, E. Mason 30, R. Tonkin 33 notout
and 80 – 3, G. Deans 44 not out
St Peters 315
Ryan Tonkin 7 – 88 (34 overs)
