New Zealand club rugby round-up 9 May

Winter’s just around the corner, but many club rugby competitions around New Zealand were played in wall-to-wall sunshine on Saturday and many teams shone brightly.

In a top-of-the-table clash in Auckland’s Blue Pool, Pakuranga and University battled to a 6-6 draw. But there was plenty of hot scoring elsewhere in the Auckland region. The Western Pioneers put 100 points on Marist to leave them, Massey – who lost their first game of the season, to mid-table North Shore – in a three-way tie with two weekends to go before the mid-point of the season.

In Northland, leaders Wellsford sauntered to their sixth straight win, beating the Western Sharks by 40 points, while Mid Northern retained second place with their fifth win 33-22 over Waipu.

Karaka (39 points) holds a two point lead at the top of the standings to both Pukekohe and Ardmore Marist (37) after nine rounds in the Counties Manukau Challenge Cup competition. Karaka edged Pukekohe 31-24 in the match of the afternoon.

The Hamilton Marist Ravens hold court at the top of the table in Waikato Premier club rugby after 10 rounds, beating Hamilton Marist 45-33. In other high scoring contests, Melville maintained second with a 48-28 win over minnows United Matamata Sports and third placed Otorohanga defeated University 32-16.

Tauranga Sports beat Rotoiti 36-5 in the second round feature match of the Baywide Bay of Plenty competition. Te Puna pipped Greerton Marist 26-22 and Paroa defeated Waikite 24-13 in two close matches.

Taradale remain unbeaten after seven rounds of the Hawke’s Bay Nash Cup competition and at the top of the table – but just. Taradale saw off a stern challenge from MAC, winning 21-20. Napier Pirates are second, beating Central 29-21, ahead of third placed Napier Old Boys Marist who pipped Napier Technical 22-18 in another tight affair.

Over in Taranaki, New Plymouth Old Boys took a firm grip on the top of the standings at the halfway point of the round-robin competition, beating town rivals Spotswood 25-15. Defending champions Inglewood grasped second with a 41-17 win over Clifton, while Tukapa leap frogged Coastal with a 46-19 victory. Stratford remains anchored at the bottom, losing 14-41 to Southern.

The first round Jubilee Cup in Manawatu concluded, with College Old Boys collecting the silverware after wrapping it up last week. COB had the bye this week. In other noted games, Kia Toa scored 23 unanswered points in the second half to beat Varsity 37-9 to clinch second, Old Boys Marist edged Feilding Old Boys Oroua 21-20.

Hutt Old Boys Marist now holds a seven-point lead at the top of the standings in Wellington with three weeks to play in the first round Swindale Shield. HOBM beat Johnsonville 54-22, while nearest rivals Tawa lost 18-25 to Wainuiomata and Marist St Pat’s slipped further after being pummelled 17-33 by Old Boys University.

New Brighton and Lincoln University are on a collision course to meet in a month’s time to decide the first round Canterbury Metro title, after both won their seventh straight matches. New Brighton beat High School Old Boys 36-27 and Lincoln University saw off Christchurch 25-22.

Harbour beat Southern 18-17 in the result of the afternoon in Dunedin Club rugby. Harbour and Sourthern are now neck-and-neck on 36 competition points at the top of the standings after nine rounds. They are joined on 36 by Taieri who defeated Dunedin 36-26.

Star beat Marist 14-11 in a close match in Southland’s Galbraith Shield, to stay at the top of the standings, while second placed Eastern Northern Barbarians defeated Blues 0 and Woodlands overcame Midlands 53-0 in another key result.
