2020 Hawke's Bay club rugby



  • Had to watch the Havelock Nth v Taradale game at Anderson Park, top of the table clash between the only unbeaten teams.

    Taradale won comfortably 51-22, seven tries to four - Havelock's final try was scored by Shannan Chase in the final minute.

    Taradale had the bigger forward pack and a bigger backline too. Namatahi Waa was loosehead, Joe Apikotoa was tighthead, Josh Eden-Whaitiri started at lock and finished blindside flanker. Caleb Makene was first-five and Ollie Sapsford was second-five. Sapsford looks like he has bulked up a bit to me and wasn't afraid to crash the ball up, he got through a couple of times.

    Taradale forward pack was too good, scored one try with a rolling maul that went 20 metres from a lineout to the tryline, and another from a 5m scrum pushover.

    Latrell Smiler-Ah Kiong played first five for Havelock and had a mixed game. Made one break to set up Havelock's first try but threw a couple of long cutout passes that went forward.

  • @Magpie_in_aus No, but they are bringing out some special Centennial clothing which I will definitely be keen on getting. I hope to be up home in a few weeks, coinsiding with a home game of course (the Clive match looks to be the most convenient one) so will be making further enquiries at the aftermatch function.



  • Just checking the points tables and it looks like matches involving the Napier High School Old Boys/Marist Senior Thirds look the best bet if you are after plenty of points scoring action with over seventy points being scored on average in each of their games.

    Brief write-up of the games: Red's rugby brace in 200th outing



  • @Number-10 Obviously my guys underestimated them and ran the bench on too early!



  • Watched MAC v NOB Marist.

    NOB Marist came from 17-34 down to win 43-34.

    The NOB Marist try to draw level was the classic one of winger running down left touchline with one man coming across - they both dived at the same time - the NOB Marist wing for the corner and the MAC defender for the NOB Marist winger. Down went the corner flag, Referee consulted the AR, and the try was awarded.

    The conversion attempt was literally inches off the left touchline, the kick hit the right hand upright, bounced down on to the top of the crossbar, and bounced over.

    And that's how NOB Marist went from 29-34 down to 36-34 into the lead.

    Lincoln McClutchie played fullback for MAC, and had an off day with the boot, kicking 2/7.

    Kianu Kereru-Symes came on for MAC in the last 30 minutes.

    Hastings RS demolished unbeaten Taradale 35-10.

    And brief reports of the games in this article:



  • And for the statistically minded Napier High School Old Boys Marist Senior Thirds further dealt a blow to those fans looking for the usual 70 odd points bonanza by only seeing 59 points scored during their match against Flaxmere. Once again all points were on the Flaxmere side of the scoreboard



  • Hastings RS demolished Havelock Nth 50-10, was 38-3 at halftime.

    Danny Toala scored two tries for Hastings, playing at centre. Hastings RS fielded five Magpies - Toala, Neria Fomai, Mason Emerson, Jason Long and Jacob Devery.

    NOB Marist held on to beat Tamatea 121-7.



  • Battle for the top four:

    1st - Hastings RS, 31 pts
    2nd - NOB Marist, 30 pts
    3rd - Taradale, 30 pts
    4th - Tech OB, 25pts
    5th - Clive, 21 pts
    6th - Havelock Nth, 17pts

    7th-10th nowhere

    Two games left.



  • For some reason all the results have not been posted so I will do the honors for
    Premier
    Central Hawkes Bay 20 - 31 Napier Tech Old Boys
    Colts
    Napier HSOB-Marist 24 - 32 Napier Tech Old Boys

    And once again followers of the Napier High School Old Boys-Marist Senior Thirds came away disappointed with just the fifty points scored this week, way down on the usual quota. It needs no imagination to deduce that all fifty were recorded on the Taradale side of the scoreboard in that particular encounter.



  • From the article below:

    TECH 31 CENTRAL 20
    
    All Black Sevens representative Kurt Baker got an ugly but winning welcome to the Altherm Window Systems Napier Technical side with this Central Park victory.
    
    "There was a bit of niggle as well as an all-in scuffle. Two of our players [winger Penikolo Latu and lock Izzy Martin] were red carded and our halfback [Sheridan Rangihuna] was yellow carded. One of their players were yellow carded too," Texans manager Cyril Whitburn explained.
    
    He pointed out two-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist Baker operated well at fullback. First five-eighth Te Rangi Fraser and second five-eighth were also prominent in the winning backline.
    
    Substitute prop Mark Braidwood and experienced loosie Trent Boswell-Wakefield were inspirational in the Tech pack. Tighthead prop Joel Hintz, lock William Gunson and flanker Frank Lochore provided plenty of grunt to the host pack.
    
    Halfback Tim Sciascia and second five-eighth were the pick of the Northfuels Central backs.
    


    Penikolo Latu posted footage of that scuffle on his instagram stories and the cards were fully deserved. Don't know why he posted it; it's quite self-incriminating. He handed out a dirty punch to the side of the head of a Central player.

    It all started with the Central first five tackling Baker without the ball, who told him off and then the first five started pushing him and Baker, of course, immediately pushed back. It escalated when other players got involved, including one Central player tackling Baker from behind, dropping Baker to the ground and then players from both teams flying in. Several punches were thrown. And that all happened while Baker was still on the ground and couldn't get up because of all those other players around him. He didn't get involved after he was finally able to stand up.

    Poor of him to get greedy and score a couple of tries when the rules clearly state there can be only one.



  • From the article below about Kurt Baker:

    Playing tomorrow will make Baker eligible for the semifinals should Tech qualify. He will miss the following weekend's game against Clive because he will be at an All Black Sevens squad training camp.
    
    The Texans will miss the services of winger Penikolo Latu and lock-loosie Izy Martin who have been suspended for six and one week respectively after being red carded last weekend.

  • Has anyone see Tim Farrell play, this season? Just wondering whether he'll be in the Magpies mix, after he pulled out, last year.

    Yes, watched him play for Tech OB yesterday v Hastings RS. At this stage he has not made himself available for higher honours.

    35c4f3b6-beb8-4a9e-805f-dcc3e37d8ad0-image.png

    Top four are confirmed in the semi-finals with one round to play.

    Central HB v Hastings RS
    MAC v Tamatea
    Tech OB v Clive
    Pirates v Taradale
    Havelock Nth v NOB Marist

    If Havelock Nth win with bonus point and Tech OB lose without bonus point they will both have 27 points but Tech OB will still qualify having defeated Havelock Nth 17-15 in their individual match.



  • And in further news the Napier High School Old Boys-Marist Senior Third kside did not let spectators down as they regained form and increased the number of points scored in their match against Bridge Pa to an impressive seventy five, bringing the weekly average to just over sixty six points per game. Once again all were registered against the Bridge Pa name on the scoreboard.
