Kick Starting of the 2013 Rugby Season

Our favourite sport is kicking off this week as Tupou College 1stXV will play against ‘Apifo’ou College as the main game at the Teufaiva Park. Tupou College has started this week in preparation for the season and what a way to start as the rugby greats Ex-Students came to load the players with skills and opportunities to play the game to its maximum best. Viliami ‘Ofahengaue “Willie O”, Siaosi ‘Atiola and Manu Tu’ipulotu came to the Mat of Helen to talk to the boys to how the game is played and how it should be.

Most of the Afternoon was theirs, talking with the coaches from the grades 1 to 5 and spent about an hour and a half with the senior team. For most of the boys they will never forget this day as ‘Willie O’ took the training session and so the Wallabies Great showed the boys that the old school training is still effective as the newly introduced methods of training.

We look forward to another fine result this year as the boys will be running on to the field with an unbeaten record for the last year. Just to remind the boys the Principal has vowed as a cancellations price for remaining unbeaten there will be a team tour to either New Zealand or Australia at the end of the season.

However the season will be tough as Tupou High School proved it to be by winning the Rugby League Season. Tupou High School will also try again this season because of their Silver Jubilee this year.

The boys however will not give up and I am sure with the help of the Ex-Students this year, this will be another year of triumphant and glory for the boys in blue.

Rugby League Finals mo e Kolisi Tonga

We now have come to the end of the Rugby League Season and 3 out of 4 teams from Tupou College will be playing for the final playoffs tomorrow. The Surprise Lost of the Under 19 side to Tupou High School was somehow appreciated by Tupou Old Boys because of the Golden Jubilee this year. It is now the under 13’s, under 15’s and the under 17’s whom will be taking the stage at the Tonga College ‘Mana Mo’ui’ sports grounds.

The history of the two schools all the way back to 1909. This year the two sides have met and the outcome was convincing enough to tell the winners but as the saying goes “It is not over until the fat lady sings” or “it is not over until the referee blows the whistle.”

The Under 13 lost their their round robin game to Tonga college by 3 tries to 1. Mesake Toumohuni is confident enough to take the shield back home. Christopher Puli’uvea has worked hard to shape the boys to a final of which the kids will never forget.Tu’akoi Havea the under 15 captain is also confident enough to show  off the skills of the boys of which ‘A ki he Lotu Vailea have taught them this year. The under 17’s remains unbeatable under the direction of Kelisimi ‘Atiola and together with the charisma of Kepu Tu’ifua they will try to rule the field as they have always did.

Lets just hope that tomorrow will be a day these mighty boys will wipe the tears of the senior from the surprise lost last Tuesday.

Weekend Results

Na’e ikuna  kotoa e ngaahi feinga va’inga e ngaahi timi ‘akapulu kotoa pe e Kolisi Ko Tupou ‘i he falaite ko hono 3 ‘o Me.
Tupou College won all of their games on Friday. It was a home game for the under 17’s and for the Under 19’s. The best win of all is when the Under 19’s beat Tonga College in our own turf.
It was a tough game as Prince ‘Etani lead the attack from the Tonga College Side. It was not until the boys in blues crossed the line after 20 mins of the first half that made the Tonga College boys strived to catch up but there was no opportunity.
Lets hope the Season ends with more of the celebrations from the Athletics Season.
