Club president Allan Clarke says five Canadians have been lined up and are set to arrive down under shortly for the 2011-12 season, which gets under way in October. Down ten of last season's premier one side, Clarke says the Canadians will be a timely addition to the squad. Clarke says there are several prospects'' from the under-18 side capable of making the step up, however, it is a big call to know if they are ready for it''. We've got some really talented players from that team [under-18], but we will just have to wait and see if they are ready for the jump up to premier one,'' Clarke says. Of more concern at the moment is get- ting confirmation of a front-line pitcher. We've got a number of possibilities that we are chasing at the moment.'' Regular pitcher and a mainstay of the club for many seasons Richie Clarke has shifted to Canada, while Justin Karaitiana is locked into work commitments. Clarke says the club is looking very healthy with strong player numbers across all grades. He says the Masterton District Council has been extremely helpful, with the pros- pect of a second full-skin diamond being laid at South Park as well as flood lights. We've got lots of sponsors lined up as well so things are looking really positive,'' he said. Giants are hosting an Open Day at South Park on Sunday from 11am till 2pm. W-B playing for pride Desperate for win By WALT DICKSON Too quick: Nick Olson outruns the Poverty Bay cover defence to score Wairarapa-Bush's opening try last weekend. CONTINUED Page 47 Pride will be on the line for Wairarapa-Bush when they host Horowhenua-Kapiti in Carterton this weekend. Both teams are fighting to avoid the wooden spoon'' in what has been a disastrous Heartland Championship cam- paign. With just two matches to go, the beleaguered sides are buried at the bottom of the table. Wairarapa-Bush -- still without a win -- has just three points, and Horowhenua-Kapiti five points. Much of the poor showing could be attributed to the province's decision not to rely on imports. With most of the 12 teams in the competition bolstering their squads with players from outside of the region, Wairarapa-Bush and Horowhenua-Kapiti have kept faith with home grown talent. Ironically, it was Wairarapa- Bush's sole import, Wellington- based Trent Vatselias (ex- Wairarapa College), who had the winning of the game against Poverty Bay last weekend, twice missing penalties in the final few minutes. Wairarapa-Bush lost 21-23. Wairarapa-Bush coach Mark Rutene defended his fullback, saying a swirling breeze made for tricky conditions. And in truth Wairarapa- Bush had perhaps enough opportunities to be out in front in the final stanzas instead of playing catch-up. We threatened quite a bit but just couldn't get that last pass away and finish off,'' Rutene says. But it was a very entertain- ing match and there were a lot of positives to come out of it.'' Rutene says the backs had their best game all year. And they went for the full 80 minutes, that was the most pleasing thing.'' Representative rugby returning to Carterton for the first time in decades drew a big crowd in brilliant sunshine.
