HomeKiwi & Hone Bell

In the mid- 1980’s, the Club Captain was a New Zealander, Chris Allen. When he was leaving the UK to return to NZ, he presented a Bell to the Club for the Top Try Scorer of the season and it has been referred to as “The Kiwi Bell” ever since.

KIWI BELL

The bell itself has had a checkered history, the original being kidnapped by another Kiwi returnee (Owen Nisbett) and a replacement duly purchased and engraved. This was then lost after a particularly heavy Dinner & Dance and another commissioned whereupon the original re-appeared; (this event miraculously coinciding with the arrival of Mr Nisbett back in these shores !).

We now have a couple of bells, the original is in Doc Crosby’s strongroom and only allowed out on High Days and Club Anniversaries, the other one is presented annually to the Top Try-Scorer who must drink something awful out of it then return it to the Club for safe-keeping (!).

HONE BELL

Celebrating the Women’s top try scorer!

In summer 2019, the Women’s team started and quickly grew, meaning a new bell to celebrate the Women’s successes was needed. The bell is a gift from the Hone family – the first brother and sister to play for the club – as a thank you for all the club had done for them.
