The cap fits in Westlake Boys rugby tradition

Flagstaff Team

Peak performance… Members of the Westlake Boys High School Ist XV in the caps earned when they clocked up 15 full games. Back row: Righard Snyman, Brook Robson (captain), Jake Martin, Caleb Tangitau, Caleb Falloon and Chace Keremete-Harris. Front row: Eliakim Tiakia, Taufui Lolohea and Zamian Martin

The latest crop of top Westlake Boys High School rugby players has been honoured with traditional caps.

Sponsored by the Takapuna Rugby club, the caps represent 15 games played – which must be regular competition matches or traditional exchanges.

If a player reaches 50 games, the white tassle on the cap is replaced with a gold version.

The team’s first competition game of the year is at noon tomorrow, at Westlake, against Whangarei Boys High School, the team Westlake defeated in last year’s final.
