However, the club hit a new low at the weekend when they were defeated 0-86 by rivals the Hornby Panthers. The Hornets won their last Pat Smith Trophy in 2014 when they defeated the Celebration Lions 28-24. However, since then they have made the top-four just once and finished bottom of the ladder on two occasions. STAR: Shun Miyake will steer the Christ’s backline in today’s college match. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Following the 2014 title winning campaign former coach Darrell Coad and team manager Craig Sullivan resigned from their roles with the club. The Hornets were then faced with about 20 players seeking exodus from the club. “We’ve been rebuilding since then and have never really recovered,” said Hornets president Ross Paniora. Canterbury Rugby League has a player transfer rule, which allows each club to have a maximum of three players transfer away and three players transfer into another Canterbury club each year. However, it’s understood the Hornets allowed about 20 players to transfer away from the club due to the concern they would leave league all together if they were not allowed to transfer to other Ross Paniora Christ’s favoured over Japan opportunity Waimea Combined 4 2 2 0 1 9 Shirley BHS 4 1 3 0 1 5 Aoraki Combined 4 1 3 0 0 4 Mid-Canterbury 4 0 4 0 1 1 Timaru BHS 4 0 4 0 0 0 Mainland Premier League P W D L GD Pts Cashmere Tech 10 9 0 1 30 27 Nelson Suburbs 10 6 1 3 10 19 Western AFC 10 5 1 4 3 16 Coastal Spirit 11 5 0 6 4 15 Nomads United 10 5 1 4 -6 15 Ferrymead Bays 10 4 1 5 -6 13 Selwyn United 9 3 1 5 -3 10 FC Twenty 11 10 0 2 8 -32 2 Premier hockey men P W L D GD Pts Southern United 6 5 0 1 6 16 Marist 6 4 2 0 14 12 Harewood 6 3 1 2 2 11 HSOB/Burnside 6 2 2 2 4 8 Carlton Redcliffs 6 2 3 1 1 7 Avon 6 1 2 3 -3 6 University 6 1 3 2 -14 5 Hornby Vipers 6 0 5 1 -10 1 Premier hockey women P W L D GD Pts Carlton Redcliffs 5 5 0 0 20 15 Marist 5 3 2 0 4 9 Avon Eels 5 3 2 0 -1 9 Harewood 5 2 2 1 5 7 Hornby Tigers 5 2 2 1 0 7 HSOB/Burnside 5 2 3 0 -6 6 Southern United 6 0 6 0 -22 0 clubs. It’s understood the rule has been more heavily policed by Canterbury Rugby League since 2015. After seven rounds of this year’s competition the Hornets are yet to win a game and have a plus minus of -192 points. While Mr Paniora says the club is not where it wants to be, he is confident the club can once again be a force to be reckoned with in the future. “Although we’re struggling at the moment we’ve got a great group of coaches and players • By Gordon Findlater SHUN MIYAKE could be representing Japan at under-20 level this year. Instead he has turned his attention to his final year in the Christ’s College first XV. Earlier in the year Miyake attended a Japan under-20 camp. From that he was asked to play in the Japan under-20 side and also the Japan A team. However, he turned down the opportunity to concentrate on his final year of rugby at Christ’s. “I’m still only 17, so I have a few more years of being able to play under-20s . . . I talked to coaches and some people said you should go, but most people said it’s a bit risky, and I don’t want to get an injury,” said Miyake. The under-20 programme would have seen Miyake represent Japan at the Oceania rugby under-20 championship in Australia last month and then at the World Rugby Under-20 Trophy in Brazil in July. The decision to not play a game for the Japan A team was made due to it having an eligibility effect on his dream to one day Weekend match-ups •Metro premier rugby (Saturday) Lincoln University v Sydenham 2.45pm, Lincoln University; Linwood v Canterbury University 2.45pm, Linfield Park; Belfast v Burnside 2.45pm, Sheldon Park; Sumner v New Brighton 2.45pm, St Leonards Square; Marist Albion v HSOB 2.45pm, Edgar MacIntosh Field; Shirley v Christchurch 2.45pm, Burwood Park. •UC Championship (Thursday) Nelson College v Marlborough Boys College 2.30pm, Nelson College; CBHS v Christ’s College 2.30pm, CBHS.

Saturday’s loss to the Panthers came on the Hornets’ club day. Both clubs dominated the competition through the middle of the 1980s, meeting in four grand-finals during that period. The clubs met in another four grand-finals during the 1990s. The sides last met in two backto-back grand-finals in 2012 and 2013, which were both won in extra-time by the Panthers. playing for the All Blacks. Today the 17-year-old first-five will enter his third straight college match against Christchurch Boys’ High School as his side look to avenge a loss to their rivals in last year’s grudge match and a draw in the UC Championship final which saw CBHS crowned champions due to scoring more tries in the match. Both Christ’s and CBHS have experienced mixed form coming into today’s match. After a bright start to the year, Christ’s were held to a 22-22 draw with Lincoln Combined, while CBHS were upset 12-40 by St Thomas’ earlier this month. “We were a bit upset and frustrated, but we had training on Monday and the boys were fizzing for this week’s game. We just want to move on,” said Miyake. This year’s college match will have extra meaning for Miyake – both of his parents have travelled from Japan to watch the game. The first college match was played in 1892, when Christ’s won 34-0. Since then CBHS have won 91 times compared to Christ’s 44, while nine matches have ended in draws. v St Andrew’s College noon, Roncalli College; Timaru BHS v St Thomas noon, TImaru BHS; Ranhiora HS v Shirley BHS noon, Rangiora HS. •Mainland Premier League (Saturday): Nelson Suburbs v FC Twenty 11 noon, Saxton Field; Coastal Spirit v Ferrymead Bays 2.45pm, English Park; Western AFC v Selwyn United 2.45pm, Walter Park; Nomads United v Cashmere Technical 2.45pm, Tulett Park. •Chatham Cup second round (Monday) FC Twenty 11 v Ferrymead Bays 2pm, Avonhead Park; Western AFC v Christchurch United 2pm, Walter Park; Cashmere Technical v Nomads United 2pm, Garrick Park.
