Diamonds Filmed for Unison's Game of the Week

May 26, 2015
Anna Marie Faavae nominated the Camberley Diamonds junior netball team for Unison's Game of the Week competition because...

"My daughters netball team from Camberley School in Hastings is the first Year 6 team from the school in years to enter into the local competition. They don't have the flashest uniform and some of our game of the week new logoplayers dont have the correct footwear and parents can't come to their games as they don't have transport but it doesn't stop them from wanting to play the game. They had their first game last Thursday and they were amazing! The best thing is, is that they had fun and displayed great sportsmanship. Their coach is a wonderful woman that doesn't have children that attend the school but is willing to help anyway. If she didn't these girls would miss out again. #gratefulparent #proudstaffmember"

With a nomination like that, how could we not select them as this weeks winner!

Our videographer will be down at the Hastings Sports Park this Thursday 28 May to film all the action of their game against Hastings Central Blues!

Check back here next week for the video highlights!

Powerman's Player of the Week is...

May 25, 2015

WOW! With the HUGE number of entries we’ve already received for 'Powerman's powerman POW logo-01Player of the Week' competition, it is fair to say there are MANY Hawke’s Bay junior rugby, netball and hockey players that deserve to be crowned Powerman’s Player of the Week!

But we can only choose one winner for the week....

This morning, Sarah & Martin from The Hits Hawke’s Bay announced Powerman’s very first 'Player of the Week' winner – ZANE TRENEMAN!
 
Zane’s mum, Jo said Zane deserved to be Powerman's Player of the Week because...
 
“Even at 27kg Zane tackles and plays hard for his team without fear and with absolute passion. He's recognisable by his trademark orange headgear and can usually be seen playing at halfback getting in to small gaps to retrieve the ball for his teammates. I'm most proud of Zane’s sportsmanship attributes and when playing against a school team last week, I noticed he helped a player he had just tackled to his feet and I thought quietly to myself your awesome my boy.”
 
Congratulations Zane! You sound like an awesome junior rugby player with an outstanding attitude both on and off the field!

Zane has won a bag of Unison goodies PLUS, a $50 Rebel Sport voucher to spend on whatever he wants!
