Premier Reserves through to final

Our Premier Reserves are through to the Ed Chaney Cup Final after beating Northern United in their semi final at Evans Bay Park today. They will play Oriental-Rongotai at Wellington Rugby's Finals Day at Petone Rec next Saturday.

On a sunny but blustery afternoon at Evans Bay the home side jumped out to an early lead and were looking comfortable at 17-0 before conceding a try right on half time.

Norths battled their way back into the game in the second half and narrowed the margin to 17-14 before a flurry of attack from the side in red. Second half tries to Jake Goodger, Jack Taulapapa and Naitoa Ah Kuoi secured the victory 32-14.

Our Colts were contesting their semi final simultaneously at Hutt Rec where they conceded an early deficit and round themselves down 0-19 early in the first half. They bravely battled their way back into the game in the second half to eventually take the lead 20-19 before a penalty at the death ended their grand final hopes, losing 20-22.

While the boys will be disappointed, they have had an outstanding season, losing only one game before this match and winning the first round Paris Memorial Trophy.
