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!

You can enter your Hawke’s Bay junior rugby, netball or hockey player to go in the draw HERE!

First Team of Superstars Filmed for Unison's Game of the Week

May 12, 2015
Hawke’s Bay residents could be forgiven for thinking the Onekawa Breakers are local game of the week comp imagecelebrities, after their team was filmed by a professional videographer as part of Unison’s Game of the Week competition.

After receiving a record number of entries since the competition opened a week ago, we were faced with the difficult task of selecting the first junior rugby, netball or hockey team to have their game filmed for Unison’s Game of the Week competition.

Charlee Carian, a fellow member of the first winning team, nominated the Onekawa Breakers because they “try really hard at practices every week.” She also “couldn’t wait to play and have fun together”.

Unison’s videographer, Kerin Greville was on the sidelines of her junior hockey game last Saturday - filming all the action as the Onekawa Breakers went head to head against Arthur Miller School.

To view the video and check out all the action, click HERE – GO ONEKAWA BREAKERS!

Entries are still open, register your junior hockey, rugby or netball team today!
