This was a great celebration of the performances and contributions of the great work done throughout the year by players, coaches, managers, supporters and volunteers.
There were a few late arrivals due to rep rugby commitments but there were plenty there to congratulate the winners and there was enough silverware to dazzle even the most cynical butler!

A quick side note, Jon Fuimaono received his blazer from Wellington Maori rugby earlier in the day for his 11 years of service. Well done Fui!
