Premiers fall late to OBU at the Basin

After sustaining the substantial pressure of a lop-sided penalty count in the first half at the Basin Reserve, our Premiers found themselves just one point behind at the break thanks to another brilliant Mike Buckley try right on the half time whistle.

Our side came out with more intent to start the second stanza but couldn't capitalise on the pressure until midway through the half. Tries to captain Isaac O'Connor and midfielder Isaia Petelo put them right back in the game, but in the end costly penalties in the last ten minutes allowed OBU to pull away for the win.

Premiers play Wellington at Hataitai Park next Saturday, kick off at 2.45pm
