North Harbour
(Buck Shelford Shield)
Silverdale 24 v 13 East Coast Bays
Massey 33 v 33 North Shore
Takapuna 66 v 08 Mahurangi
Northcote 27 v 15 Glenfield
Kumeu 19 v 15 Marist

Takapuna have set the early pace in the Buck Shelford Shield, dispatching Mahurangi 66-8 in Warkworth.

There were doubles to Francois Marais, Shane Neville, Ronnie Luella and Jamie Williamson, while Jon Elrick’s eight conversions took him to an astounding 2105 career premier points for the club.

The bad news was that prop Boyd Wiggins again badly damaged his knee.

Takapuna will this weekend defend the Les Pearce Memorial Shield against Northcote, who put four tries on Glenfield in a 27-15 victory. Former Westlake BHS star midfielder Fine Inisi scored a brace for the vanquished.

Kumeu won their first premier match since 2010, before the Western Pioneers venture.

They beat a committed Marist side 19-15 at Riverhead Domain, thanks to tries by Luke Reed, Roman Prasad and Mervyn Merumeru. A yellow card was costly for Marist, but former Rosmini College First XV openside flanker Hauwai McGahan was man of the match for the visitors.

A solid pre-season, coupled with accuracy in the loose and in the midfield, helped Silverdale tip over East Coast Bays 24-13.

Massey and North Shore fought to a 33-all stalemate, but the westerners took the extra bonus points for scoring five tries. Rep duties decimated Massey, seven of their eight debutants seeing game time. But it was an even contest between two sides who wanted to play expansive rugby. For Shore, Adam Batt toiled hard all day in the forwards and Daniel Hilton-Jones always looked dangerous.

Teenage halfback Salyn Tonu’u, son of Ofisa Tonu’u, distributed well for Massey with five-eighths Niko Ratumaitavuki and fullback Pierre Pili always threatening with ball in hand. Massey’s superior fitness allowed them back into the game in the last 15 minutes, scoring a late converted try for the draw.

Ardmore Marist are now 4-0 and with the maximum 20 competition points after a superb 29-3 win over Pukekohe at Bruce Pulman Park.

The home side scored four tries for the bonus point, extending a halftime lead of 15-3, but their defence pleased coach Saua Leaupepetele more than anything. Next weekend, Ardmore Marist will face third-placed Bombay in a big Counties Power Cup clash.

Bombay edged Manurewa 29-24 but had to lift in the second spell after trailing 24-10 at oranges. Former Bombay halfback David Poasa Osofua bagged a first half hat-trick for Manurewa at Mountfort Park. Wing Sepu Taufa scored a brace for Bombay, while Steelers prop Kalolo Tuiloma also crossed the whitewash.

Patumahoe defeated an improving Te Kauwhata 40-25, getting full value from their bench and with Harley Jenkins contributing 11 points. Vilitati Sabani scored all 25 points for the visitors, from two tries and five penalty goals.

Second placed Karaka had little trouble in extending their win-streak to three matches with a 38-15 victory over Onewhero at Karaka Sports Complex. Former Blues Under 18 hooker Romero Tagi scored a try for Onewhero.

Waiuku produced their best performance of the season in dismantling Papakura 34-7 at Rugby Park in Waiuku. The home side dominated most facets of the game, with Nathan Millar crossing for a brace and Jack Hardie scoring 14 points in his blazer game.
