2021 “Junior Rugby Finals Day” Programme



Welcome to all friends, family, supporters, team management and most importantly our players to the Thames Valley Rugby Football Union Junior Rugby Finals Day at Whangamata Rugby & Sports Club.

It is an absolute privilege to welcome you all here today in the beautiful Whangamata, to witness the cream of the crop in Thames Valley Junior Rugby. It has been a hard slog for the past 11 weeks battling it out to reach this stage of your respective competition, so congratulations for making it thus far.

Today, we would like to thank all of our volunteers for giving up their time to make this day happen. Without singling out people, I would like to thank the Whangamata Junior Rugby Club for all of your hard work in and behind the scenes for hosting today, the referees for giving up their time to come and officiate matches today, and to the Junior Rugby Clubs for your fantastic communication and organization on your end.

Have fun, play hard and have a fantastic day!

Thank you to Subway Paeroa for sponsoring Junior Rugby in the Thames Valley in 2021!
