1969 Team Reunion
 
Our last home game of 2019 this weekend sees our Horowhenua Kapiti Heartland team take on Wanganui in a must-win game. Part of the days celebration sees a reunion of the 1969 Horowhenua team, who 50 years ago beat Tonga, 22-10 at the Levin Domain.
 
The Rugby Almanack stated. “Without doubt Horowhenua was seen at its best in the handsome victory over Tonga, when a vigorous and well-knit pack secured a proponderance of ball and decisive tackling nullified the cleverness of the Tongan backs.”
Horowhenua: 22 (V. L. Whiley, M. J. Tattle, B. M. Seymour tries; W. F Robinson 3 penalty goals, 2 conversions) v Tonga: 10.
 
It would be great to see all our supporters behind our team this week at the Levin Domain, and we look forward to hosting the 1969 team!
