Our Colts have beaten Hutt Old Boys Marist to finish the first round unbeaten and take home the Paris Memorial Trophy.
Played in fine conditions on the artificial turf at Evans Bay our side jumped out to a 15-7 lead at half time. Looking to put the game away they struck again early in the second to extend the lead to 22-7 but HOBM weren't ready to make it easy. They continued to plug away and scored to make the game close with 20 minutes to go.
Ultimately patience paid off and a fourth try followed by a penalty put the game out of reach, the game was won 32-19. This is our first Colts side to win the Paris Memorial Trophy since 2011.
