Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
Bluff is famous for its oysters, rugby and hospitality. It was no different at the Bluff Rugby's celebrations in 1953 when Mr H.G. Munro, the toastmaster confirmed that the club has great spirit and tradition and it was confirmed by the approx 200 people attended the celebrations.
Mr T. A. Budd said if it was not for the older members, the club would not be what it was today. These older men encourage the younger ones to better their game and reach higher honours. The club need this to keep going to succeed as it has in the last 60 years.
He said the whole town was behind the Bluff club which gave it an advantage over other clubs. One of the two remaining first day members from 1893 was Mr G. McDonald, who blew the candles out on the cake.
To celebrate the Club's jubilee, Bluff senior team beat Otago Universities team 17-11. The game was great and Bluff fielded a strong team in E. Robinson and R. Gilson , fresh from the All Black trials, Gilson did not have much to contend with in his opposite number, M. Fahey. Robinson showed a great demonstration of tight and loose forward play and was unrelenting at every breakdown.
The Bluff team that played that day was; R.Christie, R. Gilson, E. Jamieson, R. Rouse, P. Ryan, M. Finnerty, J. Phillips, A. Eade, P. Saddlier, R. Waddell, T. A. Budd, R. Bowen, C. R. Robinson, C. E. Cross.
