Most points in the Premier club rugby match

Last Saturday, Wainuiomata bounced back from a heavy loss to Norths to beat Paremata-Plimmerton 63-19.

As part of Wainuiomata’s points was an individual haul of 38 by second five-eighth Tyler Tane. The former Marist St Pat’s and Upper Hutt Rams midfielder cut through to score four tries and he converted all nine conversions.

Tane’s 38 points is the third most in a match by an individual in a Men’s Premier club rugby match in Wellington since this website’s records started in full in 2006 and the most since Poneke’s  Tauasosi Tuimavave and Hutt Old Boys Marist’s Brandyn Laursen 50-point hauls against then competition minnows Rimutaka in 2013.

At a glance, the leading five individual points hauls in Wellington Premier rugby between 2005-2020 (up to and including round 8 2020) were: Brandyn Laursen 52 points (HOBM v Rimutaka 2013), Sosi Tuimavavae 50 points (Poneke v Rimutaka 2013), Tyler Tane 38 points (Wainuiomata v Paremata-Plimmerton 2020), James So’oialo 35 points (Tawa v Paremata-Plimmerton 2015) and Trevor Marama 33 points (Ories v Avalon 2011).

From the start of 2006 to Round 8 of the 2020 Swindale Shield, there have been 1,492 Men’s Premier club rugby matches – Swindale Shield and Jubilee Cup games, not including Premier 2 Hardham Cup games – and there have been 163 instances of a player scoring 20+ points in a Premier match.

In this 15-year period, the season that saw the most 20 plus point individual hauls was 2013 with 23. This included eight against Rimutaka, which also featured the two individual half centuries that were posted (see below). The next most prolific season for hot individual points scoring was 2009 with 17, followed by 2015 with 16.

The fifth round of the 2008 Swindale Shield saw Daniel Kirkpatrick score 21 points for Petone in a 51-20 win over Poneke, Fa’atonu Fili score 20 points for MSP in a 60-15 win over Ories, Damian Madsen accumulate 20 points for Tawa in a 25-27 defeat to OBU and James Kusel rack up 30 points in HOBM’s 85-0 win over Avalon.
