ODT Report:
Classy Green Island midfielder Ray Nu’u worked his magic to orchestrate a 39-24 victory against Southern at Miller Park on Saturday.

The second five-eighth had his hand in everything creative the Grizzlies came up with.

His ability to get away an offload meant he was a constant threat. He took the ball to the defence with intent and, if the gap closed, he shovelled the ball along the line.

Nu’u set the tone early with a bust and offload out of the back of his hand.

He was perfectly positioned to score his side’s second try. Great backing up and you could also put it down to smart play. He knew where he needed to be.

Winger Michael Manson scored next. It was a delightful try from a set piece.

He hit the line and ghosted through a gap, swerved around the last defender and used his pace to get himself to the corner.

It was rugby the way it used to be played — with skill, deception and pace. No big blokes grinding the ball up and boring the crowd silly.

Southern rallied in the second half. Fullback Obey Samate was creative and courageous in equal measure. Lock Harry Taylor was a reliable source of ball.

Outside back Timoci Tavatavanawai was hard/impossible to stop.

While this game was won by a slick effort by the Green Island backs in the opening 40 minutes, loose forwards Oliver Haig and Heath MacEwan are worth a special mention as well.

Haig linked nicely and MacEwan was tireless on defence.

Green Island will be hard to beat in this form.

Old Members Day – Saturday 29th May

On Saturday 29th May our annual Old Members Day will be held. Old Members Day is really about getting as many former members and supporters down to the Club in the afternoon to watch some good footy and catch up with your old team mates and friends. We invite you into the Club at 12.30pm, and some nibbles we be available as we lead into our Saturday matches.

The feature game at 2.45pm will see our Premiers taking on Taieri for the Roy Nieper Memorial. Taieri are the reigning club champions and after a loss to us in the Speights Jug round will be out for revenge in the key Gallaway Trophy match.

In the curtain-raiser at 12.45pm the Magpie Colts take on Alhambra-Union. The Magpies are a developing team with real potential, a number of players have already filled in for the Premier side in the Speights Cup.

We really encourage you to call into the club after the game and enjoy a drink and a chat with old mates, or you can watch both matches from the comfort of the lounge through the windows as both games will be on No 1. It is also a good opportunity to pay your sub for the 2021 year. A single is $40 and a double $60.

The kitchen is open and is selling great $10 meals later in the afternoon.

Please pass on the word to others who don’t check websites or facebook and don’t always know these days are on.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Blair Crawford
Chairman
