City honours sporting legends Centre stage: Four of the best. Upper Hutt sporting legends Wally Coe, Russell Watt, Betty Watt and Harry Kent took pride of place at Friday's big sports dinner at the Cossie Club. By COLIN WILLIAMS Eight Upper Hutt sporting achievers were honoured at The Cossie Club's special Sporting Legends dinner on Friday. Five of the eight -- spanning decades in sporting variety, endeavour and success -- attended the dinner and, early in the proceedings, received warm applause from the sell-out event's audience as Upper Hutt proudly celebrated its own. The list was chosen by a panel which included Upper Hutt mayor Wayne Guppy. The eight achievers were chosen from a list of nominations in time for the Rugby World Cup. They are: Harry Kent: Cyclist Harry Kent won New Zealand's first gold medal in the 1970 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, dominating the demanding kilometre time trial to create a Games record time. He also won silver at the world championships in the same year. Earle Kirton: A 13-test All Black, from 1963 to 1970, Earle Kirton was a St Joseph's, St Pat's Silverstream and Upper Hutt Rugby Club-educated footballer before study and provincial play in Otago in 1960. He twice toured the British Isles -- including in the famous Fred Allen-coached 1967 side -- and South Africa. He was also a Wellington coach and national and divisional selector. Irene van Dyk: The most capped netballer of all time, Irene van Dyk is a true legend of the game. The South African-born local has played in four world championships and three com- monwealth Games and continues to carve out a career of longevity and achievement unlikely to be matched. Betty Watt: A double inter- national, in cricket and hockey, Betty Watt (nee Thorner) was Upper Hutt's first dual inter- national. A former Upper Hutt cricket junior, she played inter- nationally from 1956 to 1962, and in the early 1960s represented her country at hockey. Wally Coe: Amateur boxer Wally Coe won the 64 kilogram to 69kg welterweight New Zealand title in 1958, beginning a six-year tenure. He also won the gold medal at the 1962 Commonwealth Games in Perth. Kevin Tamati: A rugby league icon, Kevin Tamati was a Upper Hutt Tiger for several years in the 1970s. He played 22 times for the Kiwis between 1979 and 1985 and professionally in Britain. Inducted in rugby league's Hall of Fame in 1995, Tamati was also a coach in Britain and New Zealand. Russell Watt: Scoring 28 tries in 42 All Blacks games is a strike rate attesting to Russell Watt's top finishing as an international winger. An Otago and Wellington representative, he played nine tests between 1958 and 1963, and toured South Africa in 1960. Cory Jane: 2011 World Cup player Cory Jane is a current Upper Hutt club All Black with 29 tests -- and nine tries. A former Sevens star, Jane was in the side that won gold at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006 before making his All Black debut in 2008, and earning selection every year since..
