WAITOMO Petroleum is the new major spon-
sor of King Country Rugby Football Union’s club
Announced last week, the two-year deal will
provide vital funding for the union along with
discounted fuel for key staff and naming rights
across several mediums such as draws, awards
and representative team shorts.
But just how much
funding the union re-
fuses to say.
managing director Jim-
my Ormsby says the
has been a minor spon-
sor of the union for the
past two years, but is excited to now step up and
make a bigger commitment for the 2016 and
2017 rugby seasons.
“Waitomo is all about fueling Kiwis’ success,.
“Our company was founded in Te Kuiti so we
share the same home patch. We’re always keen to
look after local families and proud to support the
King Country Rugby Union’s grassroot players.”
Under the new sponsorship deal, Waitomo’s
logo will appear on all draws and programmes
associated with the King Country club rugby
competition which comprises 11 senior teams
and more than 300 players.
A ‘Waitomo Petroleum Player of the Year’
and ‘Waitomo Petroleum Top Point Scorer’ will
also be awarded at the end of the season in July.
The union’s Heartland King Country Rams
team, will wear Waitomo Petroleum’s logo on
their shorts for the first time when they take on
Waikato in a highly-anticipated Ranfurly Shield
challenge at Matamata on July 30.
King Country Rugby Football Union general
manager Susan Youngman says it’s great to have
Waitomo Petroleum on board because their fuel
stops are right across the region where players
and supporters regularly travel.
“They’re a family business with Heartland
principles so it’s a great fit for our union hav-
ing someone who knows the King Country
through and through
and understands the
logistics of how big our
geographical area is,”
“We’ll certainly be
encouraging our play-
ers and their families
to support Waitomo
Petroleum in return for them supporting us.”
The union’s four administration and coach-
ing development staff will also receive Waitomo
Petroleum fuel cards at discounted rates to help
them reach primary schools, high schools and
rugby clubs throughout the region which cov-
ers Taharoa, Te Kuiti, Taumarunui, Taupo and
Youngman says: “We’re really excited about
this new partnership. We only get a limited
amount of funding from New Zealand Ruby so
it’s important to have a major financial backer to
help cover the costs of running the union, plus
travel and accommodation for our representative
players. It makes a huge difference.”
Waitomo Petroleum, which has five fuel
stops located in Frankton, Te Uku, Mangakino,
Taupo, and Mt Maunganui was founded in 1947
by Desmond Ormsby of Te Kuiti and has since
grown to become one of New Zealand’s largest
independent suppliers of petroleum products.

NGAROMA motocross rider Rachel Archer
has retained her New Zealand Junior Enduro
Championship title in emphatic fashion.
The defending champion went into the fourth
and final round at Tokoroa leading by 10 points,
needing to finish in the first three to become the
national 12-16 years open grade (boys and girls)
champion for the second year running.
The 14-year-old showed just why she is the No
1 ranked junior rider in the country by placing
second, when it counted most, to clinch back-
“I made it my goal at round one that I had to
win,” says an ecstatic Archer.
“I have been very determined to achieve it. I
even wrote it on my wall so I could read it every
day, which helped to build the vision of glory in
Archer was a model of consistency through-
out the series, placing second at Greta Valley
(Christchurch), third at Mosgiel and dominated
at Wellington winning to establish a handy lead
heading into Tokoroa. She took over the lead
from Amberley’s Hamish Foster after winning
round three. Foster then narrowly pipped Archer
at Tokoroa, but it was a case of too little, too late
for the South Islander.
Archer’s next goal is to defend her NZ junior
woman’s motocross crown in October.
“I am training hard towards this, riding every
weekend and training in the gym five days a
week,” she says.
At last year’s national motocross champion-
ships in Opunake, the teenager coped mag-
nificently with the heavy track conditions on the
second and final day of racing. She was sitting
in second place on 67 points, trailing Oceania
Hardwidge by one point overnight.
“I knew I just had to win the final two races to
bring it home,” says Archer.
“ That night it just bucketed down, turning the
track into a ‘pig pen’ for Sunday. Fortunately, I
don’t mind the wet, so it worked in my favour.”
Staying out of trouble, Archer won the first
race to draw level on points with Hardwidge, then
pulled away from the field winning race two to
clinch the national title.
