Marist St Pats is always a contender for Wellington’s top club rugby trophy, the Jubilee Cup. In the club’s 45-year history, MSP has won the Cup on average every three years. The most recent win was in 2012.
2016 was another successful season for the premiers in which they won the Andy Leslie Trophy and were runners up in the Jubilee Cup.
The premiers’ strength depends a lot on the supporting senior grades. The Premier Reserves are always very competitive in the first-round Harper Lock Shield, and have competed in the second-round Hardham Cup in 17 of the past 21 years.
The Premier Reserves won the Harper Lock Shield as the top side in their grade. At the business end of the season, the club’s depth in the senior grades is critical to the club’s success.
On the social side, the Reserve Internationals and Presidents keep the MSP flag flying. If you're too good for the All Blacks, too old for the juniors and too busy to train, the Reserves or Pressies are for you.
