Putaruru Rugby Football Club Prize Giving Evening

Some of the trophies.
The back row…

Last night saw a large crowd attending the trophy night of the Putaruru Rugby Football Club for 2017. It was indeed a time for the crowd to go wild as the MC for the night was James McOnie.

Club President, Eddie White opened the formal part of the evening along with Mark Hotham.

James then kicked off his individual display with an assortment of plays that were out of left field and out of the box! There was no ref, so no yellow cards were issued – but we now know how some of our waterways have become polluted – that’s not all white.

Some of the trophy winners announced last night are pictured below with the full trophy list below these.
