Calling all tribal rugby enthusiasts

Calling all tribal rugby enthusiasts

Monday, May 14, 2012

Taranaki Maori Rugby Football Union’s Tom Katene will be sharing his most fond rugby recollections at Aotea Utanganui – Museum of South Taranaki.

Tom will be at the museum in Patea on Sunday 20 May from 2pm – 4pm talking about his memories of Maori rugby in the south, and the Union’s plan to reinvigorate the game so that today’s young people can ‘enjoy a game on the paddock’.

Tom’s talk supports the photographs and memorabilia from the It’s not just a game: Whanau, Whakapapa, Whutupaoro exhibition from Puke Ariki on display now at Aotea Utanganui.

If you played tribal, were a supporter, or stayed home and peeled the spuds for kai afterwards - come along and share your memories. If you have some photos or trophies to share with the group, even better. We hope to see you on the day – everyone is welcome.

 

Aotea Utanganui – Museum of South Taranaki: open 10am-4pm seven days a week.

It’s not just a game is at Aotea Utanganui – Museum of South Taranaki from April 5 – July 1.
