Coles contributes to RSA’s mission


All Black and Hurricanes hooker Dane Coles has gifted his special Anzac Day shirt, complete with poppy and autograph, to Paraparaumu RSA as a gesture of support for the RSA’s work in helping service personnel who need a hand. Coles, who grew up in Paraparaumu, wore the strip during a match played close to Anzac Day and RSA president Philip Simpson said it will be framed with the intention of hanging it on the wall at Club Vista in which the RSA is a partner. “It’s the sort of thoughtful gesture by Dane which puts a human face on the behind-the-scenes support work undertaken by our key rugby players, just like RSAs, in their own communities.” Coles spent time meeting RSA and Club Vista members and sharing stories and took away a Club Vista/RSA membership application.
