Pictured is Jason Ladbrook ( nickname Beastie) , NZDC number 16 and current NZDC mens pair champion with Bernie Smith, playing for the Manuwera Cosmopolitan Club in the Wednesday night Auckland Chartered Club league against the Onehunga Working Mens Club at Onehunga earlier this evening. Jason of course is a true Canterbury stalwart but now residing in Auckland through a job transfer. You will note he is still wearing his NZDC Region 14 representative jacket even though he is playing in a chartered club league and for an Auckland Club. A true red and black. Jason won his four singles match and pairs match to assist Manuwera in defeating Onehunga 13 to 5.
