From the Chair
Coastal Rugby had its first season in 1995 after the Opunake, Okato and Rahotu Rugby clubs amalgamated to form a club based on strong community and the united values of Coastal Taranaki.
We have supporters who follow us from all over the world and we represent all our community from Pihama in the South to Oakura in the North with pride and distinction.
Our club continues to grow and prosper on the Coast. Demographically the situation has changed from the original set up with as many as half our players living out of the area. The entire success of the club hinges on the incredible loyalty these (original local) players show by travelling past other club options and making their way to Rahotu for training. New players coming in are made to feel they are part of something special and enjoy all our club offers. Our players are fiercely competitive on the field but laid back and keen for a beer and a laugh off it. Read more here.
