SCORES:- Section one: Sydenham 34 Christchurch 25; New Brighton 26 University 5; Lincoln University 45 Linwood 7. Section two: HSOB 63 Burnside 0; Sumner 41 Shirley 7; Marist Albion 28 Belfast 13.



New Brighton has the Hawkins Cup in safe security, the DCL Shield in its possession and now the prized Trophy is on the horizon.

Only Brighton has three wins from as many rounds in section one of the Metro Division One play-offs to find the semi-finalists for the championship and it has almost certainly cemented a place in the top four just as Linwood as definitely bowed out after suffering a third straight loss.

So it will be a fascinating last two rounds of the Trophy with Christchurch, well beaten by Sydenham in the third round on Saturday, on the same points as its conqueror with two rounds left. Reigning Trophy champion Lincoln University kept alive its hope of retaining the title with a comprehensive win over battling Linwood.

That took Lincoln a point ahead of University, well subdued by Brighton in the third round, and into fourth spot. Lincoln’s clash against Sydenham at Sydenham Park next Saturday will have a crucial say in the make-up of the top four.

New Brighton will oppose Christchurch, the last team to beat the seasiders in round seven of the Hawkins Cup.

Marist Albion, with the maximum 15 points, and High School old Boys, who scored 10 tries in overwhelming winless Burnside, are on course to make the middle-of-the-table Plate competition which Old Boys won last year.

Sumner, however, has a chance of finishing in the top two and it plays Old Boys at St Leonard’s Square in a defining match. Sumner beat HSOB, 51-22, in the Cup round.



Christchurch v Sydenham At Chch Park: Sydenham 34 (Milford Keresoma 2, Amanaki Nicole, Misi Lamositele tries; Kieran Lindsay 4 conv, 2 pen) beat Christchurch 25 (Inga Finau, Matt Thatcher, Ethan Plaskett tries; Ben Volavola 2 conv, Matt Kottier 2 pen). HT: 17-6. Referee: Blair Barclay. Sin-bin: Angus Middleton (Chch).

Sydenham’s old and new showcased their not inconsiderable talents in downing section one leader Christchurch and claiming the maximum five points.

Stalwart forwards, No.8 Scott Kelly, flanker Misi Lamositele and lock Kalave Auali’itia, carried the attack to Christchurch with a series of powerful, bruising runs, while 18-year-old centre Ray Nu’u, in only his second division one game, cut a swathe through the home team’s defence on countless occasions.

Nu’u impressed last week on debut, but this time he was highly impressive and had spectators’ tongues wagging just as Christchurch players’ tongues were left hanging.

Christchurch started promisingly and finished strongly, scoring the final 12 points in the last 11min, but Sydenham dominated the middle quarters, scoring its four tries and piling on 28 unanswered points in that 40min.

After the team’s traded penalty goals in the first quarter - two to Christchurch first-five Matt Kottier and one to his Sydenham counterpart Kieran Lindsay - the first of Sydenham’s tries went to left wing Amanaki Nicole after 23min.

Christchurch’s backs dithered over a loose ball on their 22m, Kelly forced a turnover and he and Lamositele inter-changed passes before Lindsay delivered a slick pass to Nicole who hit the line at speed and crossed unopposed.

The second came just before the break, fellow wing Milford Keresoma accepting a long pass from halfback Josh Lindsay, who had weaved across the field drawing in outside defenders. Christchurch’s cause was not helped by having flanker Angus Middleton in the sin-bin at that time.

Sydenham increased its 17-6 half-time lead to 31-6 by the end of the third quarter with Lamositele profiting from a big overlap then Keresoma scoring a runaway try after Nu’u stripped a Christchurch attacker of the ball 75m out and flicked a deft one-handed back pass to Keresoma centimetres from the sideline.

Christchurch v SydenhamChristchurch was too passive in the middle part. Its normally strong scrum came under pressure and Sydenham more than matched it with powerful driving from lineouts. The home team upped the ante near the end and scored the last two tries, but Ben Volavola’s wide conversion of the last try for a bonus point just missed to the left.

Nu’u and Frenchman Gillen Larrat have established a fine understanding in midfield and the forwards all fulfilled their core roles admirably. Prop Jack Straker typified the whole-hearted commitment in the closing minutes when his desperate tackle lowered Volavola just when he looked set to break into open space.

Lock Brad Tucker toiled away for Christchurch and centres, Inga Finau and Daniel Koster, slipped a few tackles but generally the home team was a little off the pace.

Hawkins MVP: Ray Nu’u (Sydenham), Scott Kelly (Sydenham), Milford Keresoma (Sydenham).

Bob Schumacher

First-round champion Christchurch beat fellow section leader Sydenham, 37-17, in the premier colts curtain-raiser after trailing at half-time, 11-14.

Christchurch, which conceded two converted tries in the first quarter to be 14-0 in deficit, hit back before the break with a fine solo try to fullback Will Jordan and two penalties to halfback Sam England, one from 46m out.

Christchurch hit the lead for the first time 3min into the second half when flanker Declan McCormick, lurking out wide, scooted across. The home team enjoyed plenty of possession and with its replacements making an impact, Sydenham was worn down.

Lock Will Tucker and McCormick were prominent for Christchurch and hooker Josh van der Plas scored a cheeky try from a short lineout throw with the ball swiftly returned to him.

Sydenham had a nifty stepper in first-five Jade McLeod and a strong, direct runner in centre Tahu Baggerley. Lock William Morris-White and industrious No.8 Inoke Masato were to the fore.



At Rawhiti Domain: New Brighton 26 (Henare Faithfull, Zac Trusler tries; Scott Davidson 2 conv, 4 pen) beat University 5 (Morgyn Cowan try). HT: 16-0. Referee: Liam Scanlon.

New Brighton played the percentages and wore down a somewhat disorganised University to win comfortably in a rather nondescript game.

New Brighton’s superior work in the scrums and lineouts provided a reliable platform to work from and enabled the home team to pressure the visitors into errors and to concede penalties in kickable positions allowing first-five Scott Davidson to notch up a 100 per cent record. He converted both tries and kicked and four penalties.

The score-line would have been much greater had it not been for the students’ tenacious defence close to their line. Three times they forced turnovers and twice more earned defensive penalties with the home team just inches from scoring.

New Brighton’ handling several times let them down in promising positions as they took the game to the students.

Davidson opened the scoring on 2min with a simple penalty goal. Then on 16min, a sustained period on attack where No.8 Aaron McCoy and prop Oliver Jager went close, Brighton was finally rewarded with a try in the corner to wing Henare Faithfull, who had enough room to outflank his marker and dot the ball down.

Try as they may the seasiders could not break through a stoic University defence again before the break. Their only reward was two more Davidson penalty goals for a hard-earned 16-0 lead at the break.

University rarely threatened. They had moments of possession where it looked like they may develop but nothing eventuated.

After the break it was more of the same. Nothing really gelled for either side, and as the match wore on it deteriorated as both teams became less organised and the match lost its shape altogether.

Davidson extended the lead with his fourth penalty on 52min.

University right wing Nic Brooker broke out from inside his 22m and looked to have run away, only to find the assistant referee with his flag up. He had just grazed the side-line avoiding a despairing tackle.

University had more possession in this half but were unable to put it to good use. From one maul inside the New Brighton 22m, University were dismayed to see New Brighton prop Carisbrook To’omalatai emerge from the depths into clear air with no-one in front of him.

To’omalatai took off with students in pursuit and made it almost to halfway before offloading a perfect pass to replacement left wing Zac Trusler, who had no one to beat as he ran in the easiest of tries.

At 26-0 down and only 12min left University were out of it, but they continued to throw the ball about. Camping on New Brighton’s line they finally found enough muscle to outflank the seasiders’ defence, openside flanker Morgyn Cowan crossing for University’s only points with 5min left.

For New Brighton, captain/flanker Billy Harmon, McCoy, lock Taua Limuloa, and props Jager and To’omalatai had strong games up front. Replacement loosie Troy Mangan put in some bone-jarring tackles.

Davidson was all purpose and had an excellent kicking game. Wings Faithfull and John Vili and fullback Stefan Moir showed speed and enterprise on attack.

University halfback Finlay Christie was again the driving force behind the students’ attacks, He distributed cleanly but the backline lacked penetration on attack with only Brooker showing any purpose.

Up front Cowan had a strong showing alongside captain/No.8 Sam Godwin. Lock Caleb Aperahama was busy in the lineouts and in the loose.

Hawkins MVP: Scott Davidson (New Brighton) 3, Billy Harmon (New Brighton) 2, Aaron McCoy (New Brighton) 1.

Donn Leckie

The division two curtain-raiser between New Brighton and Linwood resulted in a similar score-line to their earlier encounter, New Brighton winning 25-5 (round 1 was 24-15). The seasiders remain unbeaten but were made to work very hard for the victory.

The first score came from an unlikely source. Linwood were hot on attack on New Brighton’s 22m when a mistimed pass fell into the hands of rangy lock Lucas Hill, who burst clear and managed to outpace the few pursuers to go 80m and score.

Linwood held out until the 34th min when a well-delivered maul clearance from halfback Kieran Le Beau went into the hands of right wing Dayne Wipou. Wipou may have lost some speed but was still able to outflank his marker and score in the corner.

On half-time, centre Seamus Murphy received a Le Beau clearance, and he deftly sold a dummy pass to outwit the defence and score for a half-time lead of 17-0.

New Brighton spent almost the entire second half defending in their own territory but kept Linwood at bay until the 72nd min when the continuous Linwood attrition caused the seasiders’ defence to give way. Linwood captain/prop Tulima Fualau used his immense bulk to drive through a maul and plant the ball on the line.

From the restart, New Brighton broke into Linwood’s half, the last try going to No.8 Doug Stewart after the ball was spread wide for Stewart to score in the tackle.

For New Brighton, Hill, brothers Lewis and Jerome Pou, Stewart, Le Beau and second-five Jerry Meafou had strong games.

Fualau (aside from a 10min in the sin-bin) led from the front. Lock Ama Sautafu, No.8 Vitale Ilaio, and halfback Jinho Mun were the best of the rest.



At Lincoln: Lincoln University 45 (Anty Burnett 2, Hugo Nankivell 2, Josh McKay 2, Brett Cameron tries; Cameron 5 conv) beat Linwood 7 (Jordan Stewart try; Zac Southen conv). HT: 17-7. Sin-bin: Sam Limu-Franklin (Linwood), Wes Harvey (Linwood). Referee: Scott Cunnold.

Rocked by an early try against them, Lincoln hit back with two tries of their own in quick succession and added a third close to half-time.

Then, in the space of a few minutes from the start of the last quarter, the home side rattled on three further tries, putting the cherry on top with a seventh touchdown right on full-time.

Those were the bare bones of the matter but that doesn’t do justice to the way Linwood played in the first half, and occasionally in the second.

The visitors deserved more than one try in the first spell and might have achieved that if they’d gone into “rumble” mode, which they’re good at, instead of trying to spread the ball wide during sustained periods on attack.

But there’s no denying Lincoln their due. They recovered the zest of their glory days and got more expansive as the game went on.

Second-five Harrison Groundwater was a crucial figure. He played a big part in the lead-up to the side’s first try, well taken by Anty Burnett, who played in the No.7 jersey, and backed up with a second try in the same spot a couple of minutes later.

Groundwater then set the scene for a long siege on the Linwood line. No.8 Hugo Nankivell finished it in unstoppable fashion and later engineered a pushover try in the second half as Lincoln began to feel their oats.

Fullback Josh McKay was nicely on hand to complete two sweeping movements in the last 13min.

When Linwood were looking good in the first half captain Jordan Stewart, playing off the open side of the scrum, showed his class along with mobile lock Paul Garner.

Martin Solofua and Louis Devery were paired in midfield and clicked to go desperately close to producing a try in the opening minutes. Stewart scored soon after to make sure the effort wasn’t wasted.

But the big standout for Linwood was Kalavini Leatigaga, who started on the left wing and shifted to fullback when Solofua went off injured and the backline was rejigged.

Leatigaga should have had a try in the first half after a long stunning burst but slipped over just short of the line. He went on to show he wasn’t just a one-trick pony.

Hooker James Stokes played his 100th game and put in a grunty effort for 43min.

Hawkins MVP: Harrison Groundwater (Lincoln University) 3, Anty Burnett (Lincoln University) 2, Hugo Nankivell (Lincoln University) 1.

Jim Doyle

A sensational late try to Tristan Holmwood took Lincoln University to a 30-23 win over Burnside in the second-division curtain-raiser.

The left wing had work to do over 75m as he burst clear of tight play then swerved round the last defender.

Until then it appeared the score would stay locked at 23-23 after Burnside led 20-3 at half-time.

Lincoln hooker Alex Irvine was again prominent and lock Jack McFarlane put in his usual staunch effort.

For Burnside, centre Lewis Voisom and first-five Wille Brown were stand-outs, building on the work of a committed pack.



At Bob Deans 1: High School Old Boys 63 (Joe Taylor 3, George Bridge, Drew Beckley, Tom Stanley, Angus Blair, Blair Prinsep, Michael Caird, George Taylor tries; Harry Miller 5 conv, pen) beat Burnside 0. HT: 32-0. Referee: James Munro.

Something was in the water for High School Old Boys as they inflicted a ruthless shutout of Burnside.

After Burnside pushed them all the way in a 50-36 win four weeks ago, Old Boys were dominant from wire to wire and never looked like having their try-line breached this time as their backs were set in motion repetitively on their way to a 10-try romp.

After Harry Miller put HSOB on the board with an early penalty, fullback George Bridge scored the game’s first try with his second strong run in the space of 5min down the right flank as he busted a couple of tackles on his way to the line.

Enjoying an extended period of possession and territorial dominance, it wasn’t long before Old Boys were in again when wing Joe Taylor pounced on a grubber to run 30m to extend his side’s lead to 15.

With Burnside on their heels following an injury to halfback Mitch Rhodes that saw him leave the field, HSOB pounced through tries to Drew Beckley and Tom Stanley.

Stanley’s try was set up with some deft play by Will Hamilton, who held his pass long enough to draw in a defender and give Stanley a free 10m run to the line.

Taylor scored his second via a sweeping movement to the left just before half-time with HSOB enjoying a 32-point buffer.

After oranges, Taylor inflicted more pain on the Burnside defence as he showed his blinding pace to cross out wide.

Things went from bad to worse for Burnside when Peter Samu left the field with an arm injury before Taylor’s wing partner Angus Blair joined the try-scoring action when he regathered a chip on a 50m run to the line.

After Beckley crossed from close range in the first half, fellow prop Blair Prinsep was determined to square the ledger for the front rower’s union as he showed a little bit of footwork at first receiver to barge over from close range.

Diminutive replacement halfback Michael Caird threw a dummy which sucked in all Burnside’s fringe defenders to make it 58-0 before George Taylor followed Joe’s lead with a tremendous long-range try where he gassed the cover defence down the right hand touch-line to complete the rout.

Joe Taylor displayed his finishing talents as he crossed for a hat-trick. He looked dangerous every time he touched the ball. Old Boys enjoyed plenty of possession and they used it with maximum effect, making minimal errors.

Hamilton was the architect of many of Old Boys’ backline raids. He provided crisp service to his outside flanks from halfback and his pass to set up Stanley’s try was one of the highlights of the match.

Bridge was prominent early with a couple of strong runs to get the ball rolling for his side and the opening try had a touch of class to it as he broke through multiple tackles.

Hawkins MVP: Joe Taylor (HSOB) 3, Will Hamilton (HSOB) 2, George Bridge (HSOB) 1.

Anthony Morgan

HSOB were in a rampant mood in the premier colts curtain-raiser as they swept aside Shirley, 73-0.

Judah Gawith, James Kellow, Jackson Cox and Nick Cave all crossed for doubles as Old Boys built on from a strong first-half performance, which saw them lead 34-0, with 39 more points in the second half.

Replacement hooker Cave was one of HSOB’s best after coming on in the second half. His throwing was accurate and he was into everything. Second-five Kees Duyvesteyn was another to impress with some hard running in the midfield.



At Burwood Park: Sumner 41 (Dylan Nel 2, Nathan Earle 2, Ross McCann, Samuela Tawake, Dale Crowe tries; Isaac Hydleman 3 conv) beat Shirley 7 (Tawhiri Wharehinga try; Nathan Smith conv). HT: 24-0. Referee: Jeremy McAlister.

A Sumner side playing with structure and purpose proved too much for an often disjointed home team to handle as it roared to a 41-7 win. 

The visitors (seven tries to one) victory was built on a platform of good communication, knowing what your buddy was doing, where they we going to be and support for the ball-carrier. 

This allowed Sumner to express itself and look like it was having fun as it thundered to success.

In contrast Shirley, which were forced to play most off the first 40min from their own territory, often behind their advantage line, were seemingly bereft of ideas on how to break out. 

Rather than try a few `down town’ kicks and chases they persisted with trying to move it wide before earning the right, resulting in individual bursts that were quickly gobbled up by the Sumner defence.

It certainly wasn’t lack of courage or effort that brought about Shirley’s demise.  This was exemplified by young flanker Siua Maile, who was fearless in taking on bigger opponents; stopping them in their tracks with bone-shaking tackles.

It simply seemed a case of effort and courage not being enough without purpose and direction.

Standout Sumner No.8 Dylan Nel was over in the 8thmin from a one- off pass at the contact, a strong angled run, dive and slide to the line. Then, 7min later, Nathan Earle was in for the first of his two tries following a line entry and break by Ross McCann. Isaac Hydleman converted.

Nel got his second in the 23rd min and Earle got his brace 10min later. Hydleman converted the first and Sumner went to the break  24-0, ahead.

From the restart, the visitors continued where they left off and within 4min McCann was over.   Hydleman converted for 31-0.

From the kick-off, the home team produced a 20min glimpse of what might have been. They got deep into Sumner territory and stayed there.

Passes where sticking, they were working as a unit and pressurising the visiting defence. Bench players added forward momentum. The reward came in the 58thmin when replacement Tawhiri Wharehinga barged over after a series of left to right recycles. Nathan Smith converted.

Sumner snuffed out any thoughts of a local revival by regrouping, resorting to core business and scoring two unconverted tries. 

The first to Samuela Tawake was under the sticks. Well into injury time, Shirley failed to find touch from a defensive penalty. Sumner ran the ball back and replacement Dale Crowe finished off with a try in the corner.

Besides Nel, who gave a master class in No.8 play, other notable Sumner players were fullback McCann, whose well-timed runs and passes were skilful, while Fijian wing Poasa Waqanibau gave space and time for others by creating off the ball pressure. Earle was a good finisher and Lawrence Babe kept his team focused with his leadership.

Other than the abrasive Maile, prop Vili Maakegave performed stoically in a subdued Shirley scrum.  Replacements Wharehinga and Chris Morel featured in the brief second-half revival.

Hawkins MVP: Dylan Nel (Sumner) 3, Ross McCann (Sumner) 2, Poasa Waqanibau (Sumner) 1

Paddy Brandon

Shirley and Marist Albion produced an 80min display of bright, open, entertaining rugby in the division two curtain-raiser.Both teams seized every opportunity to move the ball wide and be enterprising in their approach.

The key to the home team’s 26-14 (four tries to two) victory was probably that their defence proved move robust than the visitors when put under the pump.

The first half ebb and flow ended with the Shirley ahead, 19-14. The second half continued with enterprise by both sides as they sought for the clincher right to the final whistle.

However, the combined team couldn’t add to their total. The light blues managed a converted try in the 63rdmin to standout midfielder Vinnie Letiu.

Shirley’s front row of Tom Tala, George Scarlet and Kenton Robinson made a sound contribution and live-wire openside flanker Jo Birmingham was influential on defence and attack.

In a visiting team which strove for a win until the end, halfback and goal-kicker Oliver Dimmick directed play decisively. Prop Kyle Young and lock Josh Doherty featured in the hard stuff and No.8 Jacob O’Connell was strong in supporting attacking forays.



At Edgar MacIntosh Park: Marist Albion 28 (Chris Crichton 2, Rowan O’Gorman, Charlie Gamble tries; Tom Reekie 4 conv) beat Belfast 13 (Frank Havea try; Havea conv; Oliver Marshall 2 pen). HT: 14-6. Referee: Chelsea Gurr.

Marist Albion overcame a stubborn Belfast defence, scoring four tries to maintain their lead at the top of section two.

The home side were made to work for their victory, with the game only being put beyond doubt after 65min, courtesy of a try to wing Chris Crichton.

For the first half-hour of the match, it was the defences that dominated the contest. Neither side looked particularly dangerous on attack, with both teams proving adept at slowing the ball down from the ruck.

The only scoring came from the boot of Belfast first-five Oliver Marshall, who kicked two penalties to give Belfast a 6-0 lead.

As the half wore on however, Marist Albion were able speed up their ruck ball, with their backs taking full advantage of the extra time and space.

The first try came after 36min from a well-worked move from the Marist Albion backline. Crichton made the initial break, linking with fullback Dan Fransen, before getting the ball back to score close to the posts.

Then 3min later, Marist Albion scored a crucial try to extend their lead just before the break.

Turning down a kickable penalty, Marist Albion kicked for the corner and mauled the ball over the line with hooker Rowan O’Gorman emerging with the ball to give the home team a 14-6 lead at half-time.

After the break, Marist Albion took the game by the scruff of the neck. Their set piece started to take control of the match, with the scrum performing well and lock Ross Kennedy dominating the lineouts.

For about 20min, they were camped in Belfast territory, with the visitors having huge trouble clearing their lines. This pressure eventually paid off, with Marist Albion’s third try coming from a counter-attack following an attempted clearing kick, finished off by openside flanker Charlie Gamble.

At 21-6, Belfast were not completely out of the game, but another try to Marist Albion on the 65min mark put the game out of their reach.

In an attack launched from his own 22m, Marist Albion fullback Fransen used his pace to get on the outside of his marker and break the line, drawing in the fullback and setting up Crichton, who raced 40m to score.

The try was not without controversy however, with the Belfast supporters and bench adamant that the ball had been passed forward from Fransen to Crichton.

There was no coming back for Belfast though, with a late try only succeeding in narrowing Marist Albion’s lead to 15 points.

For Marist Albion, Kennedy was the pick of the forwards. The Marist captain led from the front, controlling the lineouts and carrying the ball strongly around the field.

It was in the backline though where the game was won. Fullback Fransen and Crichton formed a great partnership throughout the match, combining to score two tries and creating a number of opportunities.

The Belfast loose forward trio consistently got their team on the front foot with openside flanker Frank Havea rewarded with a consolation try late in the game.

While their backline struggled to penetrate the Marist Albion line, halfback Leon Fukofuka put in a good performance, combining clever tactical kicking with some strong running.

Hawkins MVP: Dan Fransen (Marist Albion) 3, Chris Crichton (Marist Albion) 2, Ross Kennedy (Marist Albion) 1.
