14 February Meeting

  • When a local from Kaikohe is selected for a national sporting team there is good reason to celebrate. Last year Mihaka was selected for the Deaf Blacks, our national team of deaf rugby players, to play four games in England. Mihaka - along with all his team mates - had to raise $4000 to meet their share of the costs. Kaikohe Rotary contributed and was proud to help Mihaka further his rugby dreams.

  • This week Mihaka,assisted by his partner and sign language interpreter Ngawaiata told us about the trip of a lifetime. Despite losing to the English 3-0, the games were close and hard fought. The Deaf Blacks were far from disgraced.

  • Mihaka told us about sightseeing in London. While there the team met up with the All Blacks and taking the chance to talk rugby with their heroes. However, Mihaka admitted his favourite All Black is Josh Kronfeld - not one of the current players.

  • Kaikohe Rotary wishes Mihaka well for his future Rugby career, including for the national championships in Christchurch at Easter. Then the Argentina Deaf team arrive at the end of April and we will keep our fingers crossed that Mihaka is chosen in the Deaf Blacks team to oppose them.
