Tapuae are the 2019 Lew Patterson Cup Champions.
In a fitting Lew Patterson Cup final the two top teams – Nuhaka and Tapuae – met at MoreFM Rugby Park in Gisborne as part of the Civil Project Solutions Senior Club Rugby Finals Day.
The game had plenty of intensity throughout but Tapuae steadily built up points on the scoreboard and Nuhaka were unable to reel them in.
Tapuae had a number of experienced players who provided leadership and cool heads when it mattered most. Nuhaka are a young team and although disappointed with the outcome will be back stronger next year.
Congratulations to both teams for their seasons and we look forward to seeing more from them next year.
