Cobbers take 5th World Masters games

King Rex!

A few months ago one of our consultants, Rex Gilbert, told us he was entering the World Masters Games that were being held in Auckland.  We gave them a helping hand to get them some new kit for the tournament to help them on their path to glory.  It turns out that things went quite well for Rex and team.

The Cobbers competed in the Mens B40+ category against sixteen other international teams from Canada, Australia, Brazil plus teams from Tauranga and Birkenhead amongst others.

After a stunning start that saw the Cobbers top their group with two wins and a draw, the team met their match in the quarter-final, where they were defeated by Aussie team, Woden Valley.  They then went on to finish very strongly with two great wins against the Birkenhead Likely Lads and the East Coast Bays Mum's Mob finishing in a very respectable 5th place.  Great result for a great team.  Well done guys.
