History of Trophies

 

Sportsman of the Year:
The Sportsman of the Year Award is the main Club award and is given to a person who has worn the club colours with pride and through their achievements have made others proud to be a member of the club. Formally known as The TW Hercock Memorial Trophy named after Bill Hercock, a former Mayor of Napier and a Napier Marist Rugby Club chairman. The trophy was originally awarded to the Napier Marist Old Boys 'Sportsman of the Year', with the inaugural presentation being back made in 1970.


The following were the Napier Marist Old Boys Club winners:

1970 - Frank Murphy
1971 - John Reilly  (R.I.P.)
1972 - Blair Furlong & Gary Condon.
1973 - Ian MacRae
1974 - Dan Weinberg
1975 - Pat Doig  (R.I.P.)
1976 - Russell Exeter
1977 - Jock Eddy
1978 - John O'Rourke
1979 - Fred Harbottle
1980 - Jock McCarroll (R.I.P)
1981 - Dan Weinberg
1982 - Pat Benson
1983 - Peter O'Shaughnessy
1984 - Terry Phillips
1985 - Brent Nelson

1987 - Irwin Wirepa  (R.I.P.)
1988 - John Bird
1989 - Kevin Corkery
1990 - Pat Benson


In 2005 the Board thought it was time to update the cup so that it more readily encompassed the new NOBM club, so approached the Tremain family if they could create a new trophy called the KR Tremain Memorial Trophy after the late Kel Tremain (All Black legend & instumental in the amalgamation of the new club). They happily agreed and was first presented to Bevan Pickett in 2005 by Chris Tremain. This Cup was also engraved to include the other 14 names since the amalgamation of the 2 clubs in 1990.

 

Best Club Member:
Formally know as The Donovan Cup, this was changed in 2005 to become the Blair Furlong Cup after the All Black & first Club President of the Club. This is awarded to a member who has gone out of their way to make the club a better place to be part of.

 

Best Club Spirited Player:
Formally known as the Fish Cup, this was changed in 2005 to become the Ian MacRae Cup after the All Black & Life member of both the HBRU & the NOBM rugby Club. This is a true sportsmanship award, given to a player who puts the club success before the success of himself.

 

Supporter of the Year:
Formally known as the Eric Jackson Trophy after the late Eric Jackson, a loyal supporter of the club, both before & after amalgamation, this was changed in 2005 to become the Peter Harris Memorial Cup after the former president of the club. The late Peter Harris was a great clubman & HB man who the club benefited greatly from due to his generosity & kindness. Awarded to those that support the club as a whole, on & off the pitch.
