Matchday scoring highlights: Tawa (26) v Oriental-Rongotai (17)

The two clubs met at Lyndhurst Park.

Conditions were windy and dull, but a hearty crowd of spectators from both clubs ringed the field and huddled in the clubrooms.

Tawa won 26-17. A score that flattered the vanquished Ories side somewhat. Ories scored a converted try on fulltime to close the game up.

Earlier, playing into the wind, Tawa had made a rollicking start, scoring three tries and leading 17-0 after about 25 minutes.

Two were well constructed, while one was an intercept and runaway which summed up a misfiring Ories’ day.

Ories got back in the game and went close to scoring but were denied. They finally did so through lock Samson Alaimoana (the happy ending to this try not captured here owing to a camera meltdown at precisely the wrong moment).

They then kicked a penalty to trail 20-10 at halftime and they were still in it.

Tawa had the wind in the second spell and dominated territory and much of possession for the most part, but scores remained locked at the halftime score for almost another 25 minutes.

Tawa eventually added to their score, kicking consecutive penalties to move ahead 26-10. Ories’ second try at the end was of consolation value only.
