    Pirates 48 Tech 6
    Clive 26 - Tamatea 3
    Hastings 32 Taradale 16

  • Only three unbeaten teams after two rounds - Clive, Pirates, NOBM.



  • Hurricanes Tony Lamborn (Havelock Nth) and Geoff Cridge (Hastings R+S) played for their clubs this weekend.
     
    Karl Lowe will probably be turning out for Clive this weekend against Taradale.



  • Cheers for the updates guys - I wonder, when did MAC last beat Havelock North?

    Hurricanes Tony Lamborn (Havelock Nth) and Geoff Cridge (Hastings R+S) played for their clubs this weekend.
     
    Karl Lowe will probably be turning out for Clive this weekend against Taradale.

    Good for Cridge to get some rugby under his belt - no word on Renton?
     
    Is Lowe finished in Japan?



  • I heard whispers he might have got some game time for a premier reserve team down here in Wellington on Good Friday and notice he was listed as being on the bench for the College Old Boys-University premier team this last weekend. There must be a relaxation for HBs Super Rugby players to allow them to play club rugby outside of HB if they so desire. Come to think of it he probably is not registered with anyone in the Bay given that until last weekend he had never played a senior grade club match before in his life. Good to see messrs Cridge and Lamborn turning out for their "home" clubs and not their Wellington "allocated clubs", good effort guys.
     
    I note that Marvan Karawana managed to make the starting lineup for Wainuiomata on Saturday as well.
     
    Nepia, here is a link to a recent story about Karl Lowe

    MAC 30 - Hastings RS 30
    Pirates 15 - NOB Marist 18
    Tamatea 16 - Tech OB 25
    Taradale 5 - Clive 17

    Havelock Nth picked up their first win.

    I read Riccitelli had a great game for Havelock Nth, and that Lamborn and Cridge also played club rugby this weekend. Karl Lowe played for Clive again.



  • 16 April (round four) Prem results
     
    Clive 17 - MAC 20
     
    Hastings RS 36 - Central HB 17
     
    Havelock North 28 - Pirates 20
     
    Napier OB Marist 47 - Tech OB 10
     
    Taradale 61 - Tamatea 7
     
    With Clive's loss means NOB Marist are now the only undefeated team.



  • After round eight of the Nash Cup, points table is:
     
    Pts
    34 NOB Marist
    34 MAC
    23 Clive
    22 Pirates
    20 Tech OB R+S
    19 Taradale
    18 Hastings R+S
    15 Havelock North
    7  Central HB R+S
    2  Tamatea
     
    Final round draw on Sat 21st:
    Pirates v Central HB R+S
    Havelock North v Clive
    NOB Marist v Taradale 
    Tech OB R+S v MAC
    Hastings R+S v Tamatea
     
    Rules for teams tying on the same number of points - the winner of their individual match takes the higher position. In round one NOB Marist defeated MAC 33-29 so NOB Marist on top, and will guarantee winning the Nash Cup by defeating Taradale with a four-try bonus point even if MAC do the same to Tech OB. Should be an interesting final round.





  • Premiers – first round of Maddison Trophy (28/5)
     
    Tamatea 27, Pirate 34
    NTOB 38, Central 27
    NOBM 51, MAC 12
    Havelock North 9, Taradale 40
    HRS 33, Clive 35



  • A couple of surprising results yesterday.

    1. Havelock Nth conceding 40 points and losing by 31 points - I wonder when the last time was for both of those?
    2. The number two team in the Nash Cup losing by 39 points, and conceding 51 points, to the number one team in the Nash Cup.


  • I can't believe the only game I was in Napier for this year, was with my team NOB playing like crap and losing to Havelock North back at the end of April - Shannon Chase cutting us to pieces



  • Premiers – 2nd round of Maddison Trophy (4/6)
     
    Taradale 30, HRS 26
    MAC 19, Havelock North 46
    Central 8, NOBM 33
    Napier Pirates 21, NTOB 5
    Clive 20, Tamatea 3



  • Gees MAC have completely collapsed after Everard Reid left.
