Our Premiers got their Jubilee Cup back on track with a win over the defending champions Hutt Old Boys Marist at Evans Bay on Saturday.
The game started well with an early penalty followed by a some Fa'atonu Fili magic to send blindside flanker Josh To'omaga over for a 10-0 lead. But the Eagles fought back to close the gap to 13-11 at the break for oranges.
Second half tries to returning NZ Sevens star Lote Raikabula and lock Nick Harrison stretched the lead to 27-11 midway through the second stanza. Another Hutt fight back saw the game end tight, but the Red Machine will take away four crucial competition points.
