The Tasman Makos season has come to an end following a fairly comprehensive defeat at the hands of Auckland in our Premiership semi-final at Eden Park. Congratulations to Auckland, they were too big, too strong, too fast and too good on the day.

Hi Makos FINatics. Last Thursday night our Mighty Makos got their season back on track with a spirited victory over last season’s Premiers, Taranaki by 35 – 17. Tasman will now play second seeded Auckland in a Premiership Semi-Final at Eden Park this Friday night at 7.35pm.

Hi Makos FINatics. Saturday’s match against Canterbury was a great occasion for the over 7,000 fans who got out to enjoy a glorious Nelson sunny afternoon. Everyone was in fine voice and enjoyed the family day atmosphere and activities.

Hi Makos FINatics. Saturday’s match against Counties-Manukau in Pukekohe is one we all – coaches, players, fans – would probably rather forget.


Hi Makos FINatics. The Makos seventh match of the season, and third in just nine days, proved a bridge too far for our gallant Tasman Makos against Auckland in Blenheim on Sunday...

Hi Makos FINatics. The tough aspect of the ITM Cup is to fit 10 regular season matches in to nine weeks. This calls for each Union to play 3 matches between two weekends, and this week it is our turn. Wellington last Friday, North Harbour last night and then Auckland in Blenheim on Sunday.

CarCo the Mako Says

Hi Makos FINatics. Our first block of four matches is now completed and we can all be proud that the team have recorded four wins and a maximum 20 points to head the Premiership table.

Hi Makos FINatics. Game 3 to Blenheim was quite a trip for me, in more ways than one. The Thursday night turnout was very good with a knowledgeable, noisy and supportive crowd getting right in behind their mighty Tasman Makos.
