Waiuku 51

Drury 14 Waiuku pleased their lo­cal fans with a com­pre­hen­sive victory over the 2008 wooden-spoon­ers Drury, run­ning in nine tries for a 51-14 thrash­ing.

The mar­gin would have been larger if Waiuku’s Bay­den Morey and Kaisia Forsyth had been able to con­vert more than three of the touch­downs.

Winger Opeta Lafo­tasi had a good start to his year with two tries.

Coach Peter Sum­merville was pleased with the younger mem­bers of his side and with the way in which the team cap­i­talised on their op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Nathan Pyne scored Drury’s sole try, with Robert Dun­ning adding three penal­ties.

Waiuku 51 (E James, R Gar­mon­sway, J Beer, D Ol­son, O Lafo­tasi (2), T Misa, F Tatafu, M Manukika tries; B Morey (2), Kaisia Forsyth cons) beat Drury 14 (N Pyne try, R Dun­ning 3 pens).
