The fishing has been outstanding in recent weeks although the fresh water and silt that poured into the Bay at the end of last week will have affected the fishing inside Centre Island.

Dwayne Mansell, coach of the Mercury Bay Senior A rugby team, says they are very pleased with their 17 - 10 victory over Hauraki North at Lyon Park in Whitianga on Saturday last week. With four wins out of four games, Hauraki North was top of the table going into the clash. Mercury Bay took to the field third on the table after losing against the Te Aroha Cobras the week before last.

Whitianga local, Ron Morgan, knows a thing or two about rugby. He has been involved in the game at all levels in one form or another pretty much all his life. He began his playing days in Rotorua where he captained the Bay of Plenty junior representative team.
