SCORES: New Brighton 32 Lincoln University 30; Sydenham 53 Linwood 14; Christchurch 25 Sumner 6; HSOB 50 Burnside 36; Belfast 18 Shirley 14; University 41 Marist Albion 17.


New Brighton’s thrilling two-point win over reigning champion Lincoln University in the penultimate round of the Metro Division One competition for the Hawkins Cup has set up a grandstand finish next Saturday.

Had Lincoln University beaten New Brighton it would have clinched the Cup for a record fourth straight year, but the seasiders hit the lead with a penalty goal after 77min then had to withstand a frantic Lincoln finish with Brett Cameron’s attempt at a dropped goal in the final seconds being dragged low and wide.

More importantly for Brighton, the Cup runner-up for the last three years, it collected the bonus point for scoring four tries and kept Lincoln to three tries. Lincoln did pick up one point for finishing within seven and the result is that both teams have 40 points heading into the last round.

New Brighton’s final match is at home to Belfast and the seasiders must fancy their chances of taking maximum points against the 11th placed team. Lincoln will also be at home, but it has the much harder task facing a rampant Sydenham side which is third on the ladder with 38 points.

Sydenham put 53 points on Linwood in winning its seventh successive game and the Cardinals have strength across the park and also on their bench.

Five of the top six spots have been cemented with Lincoln, New Brighton, Sydenham, Christchurch, and University all in the race for the Hawkins Trophy. Old Boys and Linwood share sixth place on 28 points and, fittingly, they clash at Linfield Park on Saturday.

New Brighton’s win at Rugby Park also enabled it to retain the DCL Shield and regain the Kevin Lundon Trophy.

The most satisfying win, however, came at Sheldon Park where Belfast, celebrating its 100 years, got the measure of Shirley, the team immediately above it. The senior side ran onto the field through a guard of honour formed by all ages and they played with the pride and passion the big occasion demanded.



New Brighton v Lincoln University At Rugby Park: New Brighton 32 (Reuben Spicer, Aaron McCoy, Henare Faithfull, Oliver Jager tries; Scott Davidson 3 conv, 2 pen) beat Lincoln University 30 (Nick Werahiko 2, Josh McKay tries; Brett Cameron 5 pen). HT: 19-19. Referee: Gareth Reed.

Matches between the two leading teams do not always live up to their top billing but this was an occasion when it certainly did. Like a fresh packet of rice bubbles, it was all snap, crackle and pop.

New Brighton produced the early fireworks, first-five Scott Davidson gliding inside three defenders after 3min and while his final pass was deflected off the arm of Lincoln second-five Jack Goodhue, the ball fell kindly for unmarked Brighton halfback Reuben Spicer.

Goodhue almost made amends from the kick-off, Lincoln winning a lineout and Goodhue rampaging through a wafer-thin defensive line only to drop the ball in the act of scoring.

Brighton’s respite was brief; a Cameron penalty and a sharp backline counter-attack which fullback Josh McKay finished with a 60m sprint had Lincoln ahead after 15min, 8-7.

Brighton was fully aware it could not give the fleet-footed Lincoln outside backs any room so it stuck to its plan of keeping the ball tight, the forwards showing patience and maintaining good ball control as they eked out the metres one by one.

They were rewarded after 19min when a kick to the corner from a penalty finally brought a try to rugged No.8 Aaron McCoy after a series of low drives to the line.

Brighton’s third try came after 27min, wing Henare Faithful stretching out in the tackle to plant the ball on the line after fullback John Vili had charged down an attempted clearing kick.

A Cameron penalty goal each side of that try and the first of two tries to Lincoln hooker Nick Werahiko after 38min had the teams level at the break. Werahiko twice featured as Lincoln rumbled forward from a lineout win 18m out.

Cameron and Davidson exchanged penalty goals in the first 10min of the second half before Cameron’s fifth penalty after 57min gave his team a 25-22 lead.

Lincoln University v New BrightonBrighton got the vital bonus-point fourth try on the hour. Tall prop Oliver Jager ploughed across after his fellow forwards, with Joe Stewart to the fore, maintained driving momentum over 15m. Davidson’s conversion had the seasiders ahead, 29-25.

A sharp reply was expected from Lincoln and it came through sweeping ball distribution to both sides of the field before Werahiko wriggled over with 13min to play after Lincoln battered the Brighton line.

After a bullocking run by replacement Alisi Tupualei, Brighton received a penalty on the 22m and 5m outside the left upright. Davidson took his time and coolly slotted the winning kick.

There was time for Lincoln to mount a series of attacks just inside and around the Brighton 22m. Little progress was made but Cameron slipped into the pocket as the clock went past 80min and he had his chance for glory from 28m and nearly in front. His dropped kick was dragged low.

Cameron knelt down heads in hands. He had missed all three conversions and a penalty from a handy position.

McCoy, Stewart, Jager and Ryan Newman all gave everything in the Brighton pack. Lock Jack Powell, Werahiko and flanker Anty Burnett did likewise for Lincoln. Captain Spicer had an outstanding game for Brighton, while Goodue and McKay showed their running class for Lincoln.

Hawkins MVP: Aaron McCoy (New Brighton) 3, Oliver Jager (New Brighton) 2, Nick Werahiko (LU) 1.

No curtain-raiser was played.



At Sydenham Park: Sydenham 53 (Jack Straker, Jordan Stone, Matt James, Brodie McAlister, Tana Manu, Misi Lamositele, Scott Kelly tries; Kieran Lindsay 6 conv, 2 pen) beat Linwood 14 (Pita Anae-Ah Sue 2 tries, Zac Southen 2 conv). HT: 20-7. Referee: Liam Scanlon.

Sydenham held too many aces, notably in the form of inspirational captain Misi Lamositele, and threatened to run riot in the dying stages.

Linwood laid on three of their trademark forward sieges during the match to give them a little flush of pride.

The first came at 20min when the visitors were down 0-20, and it took Sydenham some time to break out.

The second started 5min from half-time and ended when livewire hooker Pita Anae-Ah Sue finally burst through from close range. Then well into referee’s time, Ah Sue was across again to finish another sustained assault.

Sydenham’s Misi Lamositele earned high praise for his staunch ball-carrying when the going was tough. But he went better than that.

Ten minutes into the game he was the recipient of a sweet off-load under big pressure from Milford Keresoma. Lamositele spied Linwood’s left wing ahead of him and went into wing mode himself, pouring on the pace and swerving round the defender in a big run from the deep.

Dynamic halfback Jordan Stone was on hand to complete the movement.

Lamositele found himself in a lot of space 10min from the end and had the crowd roaring as he waltzed through to score.

Another Sydenham player to make a huge break was centre Moses Faletolu, who put left wing Tana Manu over 5min from the end.

Kieran Lindsay was influential, missing only one goal attempt, and as the game loosened up he probed hard at the defensive line to slip other runners away.

The buffeting Anthony Tiatia also asked questions of the defence in midfield to mark his 50th appearance for Sydenham.

Standouts for Linwood were Anae-Ah Sue, No.8 Renata Hakiwai, openside flanker Tom Verdonk and lock Paul Garner. The latter did a lot around the field, often in defence, and was prominent in the side’s purple patches.

Hawkins Medal MVP: Misi Lamositele (Sydenham) 3, Kieran Lindsay (Sydenham) 2, Jordan Stone (Sydenham) 1.

Jim Doyle

A very smart back move by Sydenham a few minutes from the end sealed the game for them, 29-20, in a pulsating curtain-raiser against Marist Albion.

The backs spread the ball wide at pace and did not need the last man as fullback Jimmy Lim speared through a gaping hole to score.

Matt Bateman, a former first-division player back from a spell overseas, was a tower of strength for Sydenham while flankers Filipe Rosa and Simon Morse were in the thick of it throughout.

For Marist Albion, second five-eighth Fritz Va’a, No.8 Sean Breen and first-five Jonty Stuart played key roles in a close-fought battle.



At Chch Park: Christchurch 25 (Tui Mika 2, Hamish Kilpatrick, Simon Forrest tries; Steve Alfeld conv; Cam Bailey pen) beat Sumner 6 (Nik Cumming 2 pen). HT: 10-6. Referee: Sheldon Eden-Whaitiri. Sin-bin: Tui Mika (Chch).

Christchurch took some time to overcome a willing and sometimes feisty Sumner in a rather untidy affair. Christchurch were no angels either when it came to confrontation as both sides often stood toe-to-toe as the game wore on.

The home team had the better of the set pieces, particularly the lineout where the Tucker brothers, Brad and James, dominated. James, down from the Waikato, was in standout form and showed his mobility carrying the ball up in the forward exchanges.

Both had a hand in the tries scored from lineout drives by No.8 Tui Mika, who despite an early spell in the sin-bin, had a very strong game and his battle with opposite Josh Leszczuk was interesting.

Sumner started strongly, forcing Christchurch into a series of early turnovers, but then, as in the rest of the match, didn’t take advantage of the few opportunities they managed to earn.

Living off scraps of possession but willing to try anything from anywhere, Sumner’s adventurous streak often cost them turnovers, and allowed the red-and-blacks to stifle the attack.

Christchurch often made inroads down the left flank through centre Daniel Koster and left wing Fraser Scott, but it was the forwards who did the real damage.

Christchurch’s first try came when halfback Nick Annear spun the ball wide and it passed through the hands of Mika, Koster, fullback Cam Bailey and onto waiting hooker Hamish Kilpatrick on the right wing who dotted down behind the posts. Bailey’s conversion missed, setting the seed for his one of four success rate.

Sumner competed well for the rest of the half, gaining its only points of the match through two Nik Cumming penalties, but conceding another try, this time to No.8 Mika from a well-constructed lineout drive, following a Brad Tucker take and set.

The home team’s lead at the break was a precarious 10-6, and Sumner would have been happy to be that close.

That was extended to 13-6 on 48min through a Bailey penalty. Christchurch were well contained for the next 20min as the visitors forced them into errors, but the seasiders over enthusiasm proved costly at crucial times on attack, spilling the ball.

The Sumner faithful thought that speedster Elias Caven had scored a runaway 95m try from an intercept, only to see the referee standing with his arm up for an offside penalty, which was turned into Mika’s double, this time from James Tucker’s lineout take and drive.

Tucker also featured in the final try to replacement hooker Simon Forrest, his catch and pass being slung out along the backline to Forrest waiting on the wing. First-five Steve Alfeld converted from wide out.

The home team’s better structure once it got into Sumner’s 22m was the telling point.

Halfback Annear distributed well but both sets of backs were evenly matched and rarely threatened.

The Tucker brothers and Mika stood out up front for Christchurch, both in the set pieces and forward battles. Blindside flanker Angus Middleton was as usual hard-working and combative.

Sumner never really fired. Holding their own up front through Leszczuk, lock Lawrence Babe and hooker Tom Crozier, they were often retreating in the scrums which made clearances hard for halfback Tom Ziolo.

Fullback Marshall Suckling was safe at the back and ran well, as did little Scot wing Ross McCann.

Hawkins Medal MVP: James Tucker (Chch) 3, Tui Mika (Chch) 2, Brad Tucker (Chch) 1.

No curtain-raiser was played. But in Friday night’s division two clash between front-runners New Brighton and Christchurch, victory went to Brighton.



At Burnside 1: High School Old Boys 50 (Angus Blair 2, Ra Parker, Peter Chaplin, Kurt Polson, Jarred Percival tries; Percival 4 conv, 4 pen) beat Burnside 36 (Hayden Webber 2, Jesse Montagu, Tafesilafai Maafi, Owen Murphy, Sam Prosser tries; Luke Reihana 3 conv) HT: 34-26. Referee: Scott Cunnold.

Defence was a foreign concept as Burnside and High School Old Boys combined for nine tries in a free-flowing first half.

The 60-point scoring spree gave little indication that the contest was seventh vs 12th, as the cellar-dwellers Burnside looked every bit as accomplished as their opponents on attack.

The first try came after 3min when HSOB found themselves camped in Burnside’s 22m following an error from the kick-off.

The ball was spread through the hands where Angus Blair crossed and Jarred Percival converted to give HSOB a 7-0 lead.

Almost immediately Burnside camped in HSOB’s 22m but were repetitively held off by some staunch defence before after 7min attacking they crossed when Hayden Webber scored in a rolling maul.

Ra Parker answered soon after for Old Boys in what would be a costly try as he went off injured in the motion of scoring before Peter Chaplin extended their advantage to 12.

Burnside crossed for back-to-back tries, the second of which was a special where wing Tafesilafai Maafi intercepted an errant pass and ran 50m to score untouched to make it 21-19 after little more than a quarter of the game.

The sides traded tries before Blair crossed for his second on the stroke of half-time in a slick backline movement engineered by a sleight of hand from Percival to give HSOB an eight-point lead at the break.

If anyone thought that try would break Burnside’s spirit they were sadly mistaken as the hosts came out firing with tries to Sam Prosser and Webber early in the second half, but they never regained the lead, with the boot of Percival keeping HSOB at arm’s length.

With Burnside pressing hard for a draw trailing 43-36 in the dying minutes and handling beginning to let both sides down, it was a dropped ball and some nifty soccer skills which provided the sealing try as Percival won the race to the ball. He slotted the conversion to bring up his side’s half century.

Percival was the difference between the teams with his passing game engineering plenty of threatening raids on Burnside’s defence.

Blair was the beneficiary on two occasions of a couple of pinpoint backline movements which allowed him to burst through a stretched defensive line to score.

HSOB had the ascendancy up front for much of the contest and they received a few penalties at scrum time.

Chaplin was to the forefront of this as he scored a first-half try and combined well with fellow front rowers Nick Hyde and Blair Prinsep to put real acid on the Burnside eight.

For Burnside, second-five Rowland Kotobalavu was a standout. He always looked threatening whenever he carried the ball and he produced some strong tackles on a day where tackling wasn’t really a strong suit.

Hawkins Medal (MVP): Jarred Percival (HSOB) 3, Rowland Kotobalavu (Burnside) 2, Peter Chaplin (HSOB) 1.

Anthony Morgan

Lyttelton prevailed, 33-26, in a neck-and-neck struggle with Burnside in the division two curtain-raiser.

With the sides locked at 19-19 for most of the early part of the second half it was left to Nick Howie to go over to give Lyttelton a 26-19 lead with 20min left.

Burnside answered with a try of their own before they had a chance to win the game when they received a penalty 30m out in a handy position with 5min left.

However, they opted to go for the try and promptly missed touch from the penalty before the ball was kicked downfield by Ben Corston where Lyttelton were awarded a penalty soon after.

Johnny Fisher’s attempt at goal fell short but a good chase forced a turnover before Chris Barry barged over for the winning try.

Hooker Nathan Bolton was a standout for Lyttelton while Cam Smailes brought plenty of passion to the contest.

Howie also had a great return to division two rugby after he had been in hospital and he scored a vital try late in the game.



At Sheldon Park: Belfast 18 (Setelo Tuimoala, Ulaisasi Lawavou tries; Will Stevens conv, 2 pen) beat Shirley 14 (Hayden Mitchell 2 tries; Nathan Smith 2 conv). HT: 8-0. Referee: Jamie Nutbrown. Sin-bin: Nathan Smith (Shirley), Setelo Tuimoala (Belfast). 

On their club day, with the extra burden of 100 years of rugby playing tradition, the expectation to deliver from the largest crowd of supporters seen at Sheldon Park in an age, the Belfast division one team ran out through an honour guard of junior section, premier colts and division two players.

The only thing that stood in the way of capping a perfect celebration weekend for the hosts was a steely-eyed crew of young men from Shirley who had every intention of raining on Belfast’s parade.

There is a history of close and hard fought tussles between these two sides and this match was to prove no exception. Each team scored two tries and, after 80min, the difference was four points with Belfast grabbing bragging rights and Shirley earning a deserved bonus point.

In perfect playing conditions the home side kicked off and led by their loose forward trio of Naibuka Tavenavo, Frank Havea and Amentave Tukana quickly established a presence inside the visitor’s 22m.

Shirley repulsed the early challenge with determined defence and the match settled down into a slug out between the two 22m lines. 

The stalemate was broken in the 27thmin with a Havea surge from 60m out, a strong carry by Tukana and offload to Setelo Tuimoala who, with work to do, ran 30m and jammed the ball down on the chalk.

The game resumed its earlier pattern of thrust and counter thrust until the 39thmin when Will Stevens kicked a penalty for the home team. The break came with his side 8-0 up.

Shirley restarted the match and were the more assertive in the third quarter, driving hard through the forwards with Hayden Mitchell showing out.

Only lack of accuracy and finishing off of promising opportunities prevented them quickly eating into Belfast’s lead.

In the 56thmin, Mitchell scored following a series a forward assaults on the home team’s line. With Nathan Smith’s conversion closing the gap to one point and his team travelling better, it looked ominous for Belfast.

Players coming off the bench, from both sides, were adding to the intensity of the struggle for dominance. Ulaiasi Lawavou added value for Belfast and Siua Maile did likewise for the visitors.

With Tavenavo prominent, Belfast surged into Shirley’s 22m. Two attacks from close range were thwarted by rugged defence. Then replacement Lawavou got the ball 15m out and crashed through a wall of defenders to score. Steven’s converted and the good humoured, yet animated, home crowd breathed a sigh of relief.

Stevens extended the home team’s lead with a 77th minute penalty goal. Shirley then mounted further attacks and Mitchell grabbed his second try. Smith converted and the gap was four. 

With seconds to play and Shirley in possession it appeared that it wasn’t yet decided.  However, a visitor’s error brought the final whistle for the two exhausted teams who had given their all.

Belfast notables in the victory were `man of the match’ Havea, who was dynamic on the carry, on defence and in support play. He was well backed up by Tavenavo and Tukana. Replacement Lawavou performed like a one-man demolition crew adding a powerful presence.  Prop Ashley Fenemor scrummaged strongly and made a couple of surges in the open.  Rhett Moore distributed and linked effectively.

Prominent for Shirley were Mitchell, especially in the second half. Smith was tidy in his general duties and asked questions of defenders when he ran from broken play. Prop Tawhiri Wharehinga scrummaged purposefully, Maile added grunt from the bench and Brandon Fanolua tried to spark things with limited opportunities.

MVP Frank Havea (Belfast) 3, Hayden Mitchell (Shirley) 2, Amentave Tukana (Belfast) 1.

Paddy Brandon

The Belfast division two team, in winning their first game of the season, delivered the perfect appetiser for the main course that was to follow heaping even more pressure on the club’s first team.

In a hard-fought battle with Shirley, the home team, who seemed to have more resolve and strength of purpose, won 30-21.

Both teams scored three tries and the difference was the perfect goal-kicking record of Chris Case, who nailed three penalties and three conversions from all sorts of distances and angles.

In the 80min the visitors probably created more clear-cut chances than Belfast, but lack of patience and accuracy, coupled with an in-your-face home defence, saw many of these opportunities fizzle out.

Standouts for Belfast were Case, a goal-kicking hero and a strong influence in his duties as a hooker, first-five Keith Foster and wing Brandon Anderson.

For Shirley, James Saviea and Sam Barnes battled well in the forwards and first-five Adam Bartram contributed three conversions and provided field position with tactical kicks.



At Ilam Fields: University 41 (Brad Hemopo 2, James Lentjes 2, Tailah Love, Morgyn Cowan tries; Brad Hemopo 4 conv; pen) beat Marist Albion 17 (Tom Reekie, Rowan O’Gorman tries; Tom Reekie 2 conv, pen). HT: 15-10. Referee: Kane McBride. Sin-bin: Matt Morrison (Marist Albion).

A strong second-half performance helped University see off a spirited challenge from Marist Albion at Ilam Fields.

With Marist Albion trailing by 27-17 after 60min, the game was still on as a contest. In the last 20min though, University pulled away from the visitors, scoring two tries to put the game well out of reach.

University started the game like they finished it, with complete control in the territory and possession stakes. For the first quarter of the match, Marist Albion struggled to get out of their own half.

Every time they tried to clear their lines, University pegged them back near their own goal-line, with fullback Matt Farrant displaying some clever tactical kicking.

When University did eventually launch a counter-attack, they did so with devastating effect.

Following a clearing kick from Marist Albion, second-five Brad Hemopo found a half-gap in the Marist Albion defence. Openside flanker James Lentjes showed superb timing to collect the offload and then set up wing Tailah Love for a try in the right-hand corner.

While at that stage the score was only 8-3 to University, it looked very much like they might run away with the game.

Marist Albion had other ideas however. When they finally did manage to get an attacking opportunity close to the line, they were clinical in their execution.

After 32min, Marist Albion second-five Tom Reekie took advantage of some soft University defence, breaking the line with a left-foot step and dotting down under the posts. With the successful conversion from Reekie, Marist Albion took an unlikely 10-8 lead.

It was a short-lived though, with Lentjes scoring for University from a pick-and-go to bring the scores to 15-10 on the stroke of half-time.

The second-half started badly for the visitors, with hooker Matt Morrison sent to the sin-bin for a dangerous lifting tackle after 41min.

University soon capitalised on their one-man advantage, utilising an overlap to send Hemopo in for a try in the left-hand corner.

When Lentjes scored his second try from close range on the 55min mark, University were up by 27-10 and were again threatening to run away with the game.

Marist Albion responded to the challenge though, with reserve hooker Rowan O’Gorman burrowing over the line to bring the scores to 27-17.

The final quarter of the match proved a bridge too far for the visitors however. Taking advantage of a tiring Marist Albion defence, University put the match beyond doubt with tries to Hemopo and reserve flanker Morgyn Cowan.

For University, there were several standout players. At halfback, Finlay Christie continued his excellent form, providing a great platform with his crisp passing. Hemopo was a dominant force at second-five, with the converted No.8 keeping the Marist defence on the back foot with his powerful running game.

Lentjes was the pick of the University players however, with the openside flanker scoring two tries and making some dynamic plays on both attack and defence.

Flanker Charlie Gamble had a strong game for Marist Albion, breaking the line on multiple occasions with his hard running, and putting in some heavy tackles on defence.

Second-five Reekie was Marist Albion’s best back, combining a good kicking display with some elusive running in the midfield.

Hawkins MVP: James Lentjes (University) 3, Brad Hemopo (University) 2, Tom Reekie (Marist Albion) 1.

Tim Newman

In the premier colts curtain-raiser, Christchurch maintained their position at the top of the table, with a 60-3 thrashing of University.

University were barely hanging on at the half-time break, trailing 22-3, but let the floodgates open in the second half.

Christchurch looked dangerous with ball in hand right across the park, with backs and forwards combining well to put 10 tries on the scoreboard.

The pick of the Christchurch backs was fullback Will Jordan, who scored two tries and menaced the University defence with his forays into the line.

In the forwards, lanky lock Will Tucker showed his athleticism with a dominant display in the air and around the field.

For University, most of the game was spent tackling. Flanker Henry Fergusson and second-five Nic Adams lead the defensive effort – maintaining their high work-rate to the final whistle.
