Premiers get solid win at Wainuiomata

Our Premiers got their first win of the Jubilee Cup round with a gutsy 31-16 win over Wainuiomata at William Jones Park.

Trailing by 11-13 at the break, it was patience that led to victory. Prolonged periods inside their opposition 22, along with a yellow card to Wainui first five Josh Robertson-Weepu for a late tackle, eventually wore the home side down. Mike Buckley continued hit try-scoring form with a brace, including a 70 metre solo effort on full time.

Premiers play HOBM next Saturday at Evans Bay Park at 2.45pm
