Tagged to do best to beat the Aussies By ANDREA O'NEIL Flagged for bigger things: Five Porirua tag rugby players have been chosen to represent New Zealand in a four-day battle against Australia in April. From left, Raysharn Edmonds-Lama, Paie Ngaroi, Jayden Luapo, Renouf To'omaga and Paul Ulberg. Players may not get to smash each other as much as they like, but tag rugby is on the up in Porirua, with a group of local boys representing New Zealand in a trans-Tasman championship next month. Five Porirua college students will travel to Auckland on April 4 to represent New Zealand along- side 11 other players chosen as the cream of the crop in their under-18 division. They will play five games against Australia over four days in what Bishop Viard student Jayden Luapo, 17, describes as a little State of Ori- gin . The boys were selected while representing Wellington at a two- day national tournament in Auck- land in mid-February. Wellington came third, winning all but two games. Porirua boys making the national team were Raysharn Edmonds-Lama, Paie Ngaroi, Renouf To omaga, Paul Ulberg and Luapo. The five are the only represen- tatives from the Wellington region on the New Zealand team, a fact owing to the game s popularity in Porirua, according to the boys. Flag s not a big thing in town, Raysharn Edmonds-Lama, 16, says. Despite attending different high schools, the players know each other well from years playing in a league based in Titahi Bay, and are from opposing teams Risk and Starz. They are looking for sponsor- ship to be able to attend the tour- nament, and estimate they will need between $3000 and $4000 for accommodation and travel to the event. The boys use flag rugby as a way to keep up their touch rugby training during the summer season. It s fun, but would be better if players could smash each other as in the full-contact touch, Luapo says. To sponsor the team contact parent Emma Akavi on 235 8707. League attracting more schools Leading league: Porirua's Phil Roache has spent much of his working life with young people, meaning he was a perfect fit for the Kiwisport development officer role covering Kapiti, Porirua and Wellington. By KRIS DANDO Phil Roache is a leaguie in a land where rugby union will always rule. The Kiwisport development officer for Wellington Rugby League -- one of two newly-created community roles this year -- has been involved with the game all his life. For the past four years he has been assistant coach for his beloved Porirua Vikings premiers but has had to give it away due to his position with WRL. Any disap- pointment has been assuaged by getting to work with kids in schools, through the Leadership Through League (LTL) pro- gramme. It s been great for us [WRL] and the game. The kids are just buzzing about it. When I was at Mana, we had one season of league, maybe three games, and that was it. Now look how many people are involved and what sort of things are happening . . . In 2011, eight colleges in Wel- lington, Porirua and the Hutt Val- ley took part in LTL, where senior students go to primary schools and run rugby league skills sessions. More than 30 primary schools and 3000 kids took part. This year another seven colleges and 40 primary schools are likely to take part. At the end of the LTL module, which goes for about five weeks, the college students host a tournament in their area. LTL is at Aotea College this term. The programme earns the senior students NCEA credits and has provided another huge boost for the game in this region, coming on the back of the success- ful Stephen Kearney Cup college competition. The colleges have been awe- some to deal with and there is real support for rugby league in Porirua, Roache said.
