Held in Orewa from February 21 to 23, the Tag Nationals attracted more than 1000 players from across the country in eight grades. The Wellington under-21 side, made up predo- minantly of Porirua players, beat East Auckland 3-2 and Waitakere Green 2-1 on day one. They drew 4-4 with North Harbour but topped their pool by defeating Waitakere White 7-5 on the sec- ond day, to earn a semi-final spot. In post-pool play, Wellington moved up another gear, demolishing North Harbour 12-4. In the final their defensive patterns and set-plays with ball in hand helped them overpower Waitakere Green 5-0. Captains Kalim Kelemete and Sheldon Akavi led the way, with head coach Michael Finau com- mending the high level of skill, concentration and intensity. Leading up to nationals the boys trained hard, participated in all the fundraisers and remained focused from the time they arrived in Orewa up to the final whistle of the grand final.'' The future looks bright too, with team members Kerrod Foaese just 15 years old and and Jade Ng only 16. In other results, Wellington were runners-up in the under-17 grade, while the under-18s, 30s men and open mixed sides won their respective shield competitions. Finau says his squad's success would not have been possible without the support of family, friends and Pak 'n Save Porirua. Marlins' home advantage Homecoming: Titahi Bay Marlins' forwards Taraea Campbell and Jeff Risati can't wait for the new season to kick in, especially as they will be playing in the Bay. By KRIS DANDO The Titahi Bay Marlins are ready to roll for the upcoming rugby league season, buoyed by growing support and a new home ground. The Marlins, who last year made the semi-finals in the Senior 1 grade for the second year in a row, officially had Can- nons Creek Park as their home'' venue for many years. Last year they played a handful of games on Titahi Bay Intermediate's field, and it is now their permanent base. Marlins' captain Jeff Risati is over- joyed the team are now anchored in the Bay and wants to build up home support for his side. It's the first time in 30 years we're playing in Titahi Bay. The older players from the club are pleased and we're hoping it's going to be the kick rugby league needs in this part of Porirua.'' Numbers for the Marlins -- who have just one senior team -- are at about 20, although more have indicated interest during pre-season, Risati says. Their success last year was built on hard graft and teamwork, he says, as they are one of the smallest teams in the competition. Pacy backs and hard-hitting forwards were their hallmark, but Risati wants the side to go one better in 2013. We're going to try and win the compe- tition, two years into the semis speaks volumes about where we are, but we'd love to go one better. People thought [last year's effort] was a bit of a fluke but we demolished plenty of teams.'' Defending champions Trentham Titans will again be the ones to beat, with the Vikings' Senior 1 sides tough to get past as well, Risati says. The Marlins train every Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm at Elsdon Park.
