Premier Division

The NPOB Premier team are in for an entertaining season under the coaching leadership of Taranaki icons Andy Slater and Michael (Jimi) Carr. Their fierce commitment to the club is also met with their desire to succeed. They also have on board the always consistent Daniel Brooks (Brooksie) and NPOB’s finest Hamish Mitchell (Behar) as young talented coaches. A team is not complete without a manager- in this case two- Steve (Spud) Roylance and NPOB man Bruce Lilley. However, these men would not be able to lead our Premier men to success without our true treasure Billy Preston on video analysis- Billy puts more hours into supporting these men than there are in a week- talk about legend status.

We are also privileged to have on board this year without Premier men the incredibly experienced Nathan Coombes and Andrew Larkin as physios.

There are many talented players to watch this season, including the new captain Jackson Morgan who is sure to keep the boys in line and over the try line. We look forward to the return of Daniel Waite from France part way through the season who will continue to kick beautiful conversions. New Blood such as Zak McDonald and Joel Williamson will bring some additional energy and excitement to the field while their mullets blow in the wind Charlie’s Angels style. The Rei boys, Codey and Josh will also continue to bring leadership and team spirit to your Saturday game watching.
