An Evening with Tawera Nikau in Marokopa, Waikato

Thursday 9th June 2022, 6.00pm, Marokopa Hall

Take a night off farm and join us for an entertaining evening with Tawera Nikau at the Marokopa Hall. 

Tawera made his name in the highly competitive world of rugby league, playing with South Auckland club Otahuhu before starting his professional career in England where he played with the Castleford Tigers, Sheffield and Warrington. He later moved to Australia to join the Cronulla Sharks and then to the newly formed Melbourne Storm, where he was part of the 1999 premiership winning team and where he is still acknowledged and celebrated as one of their best ever players.

A veteran of 19 tests for New Zealand as a forward, Tawera went on to captain the New Zealand Maori team at the Rugby League World Cup and has been inducted into the New Zealand Legends of League. Tawera’s passion and contribution to league continues as he currently sits on the NZRL Board of Directors and is a selector for the New Zealand Kiwis.

Registration is essential for catering purposes using the following link:   https://forms.office.com/r/Gswd8LSbBJ

Thanks to fundraising efforts in the community and the generosity of some local sponsors this evening is free for all those with a connection to the primary sector.
