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.
Riverton fielded much the same team in 1976 which meant that it looked the team to beat.
Gains were: promoted juniors - Allan Frew at full-back, Frank Carran - flanker and Douglas Stewart - lock.
Losses: Wayne Feaver - to Wrights Bush and Philip Laurie to town (Pirates Club).
The captain was Western prop - Alistair Murray, Norman Cleaver, Henry Agnew, Michael Ward, Philip Laurie, Peter Dawson and Wayne Soper.
Southland half-back Murray Heath was the main pivot to link the forwards to the backs, but he was versatile and played outside Graham Guise at times.
Brian Thompson, former Star and Western five-eight, Owen Andrew - centre, Stewart Heath, Gordon Lewis and John Ngatai at wingers. Allan Frew was the full-back.
