Under 21 Axemen 2014-2015

The U21 team competed at the Adelaide 175th A & P Show.

The team for Adelaide was made up of the following axemen.

  1. Chris Lord
  2. William McDonald
  3. Logan Tinomana
  4. Axel Hohneck
  5. Quintin Fawcett
  6. Brodie Grant
  7. Aidan Grant

Reserves were Tawhi Lackner, Nic Corbin, Rex Petersen

I attended Adelaide with the U21 team as a supporter. The boys performed very well and were quite competitive considering the depth of the Australian team. They lost the series 3 – 0.

The Colts were invited to compete in Adelaide in 2015. I think that the team will be more competitive this year. Due to funding constraints and late notice of the invitation we are only taking the minimum of seven in the team. We had a very successful weekend training camp in Wanganui on 15-16 August. I could see a big improvement in everyone’s performance over the camp. Thanks to the women for competing against us as part of our training. Thanks to the supporters who supplied the logs and helped during the camp.

I look forward to being involved in the administration and management of our Under 21’s as these are the future of our sport.
