NZ schoolboys continue great form
The New Zealand Secondary Schools rugby team continued their dominant form yesterday with a 34-11 win over Australia Schools to finish their campaign with three victories. The forwards laid the platform for New Zealand, with flanker Jeriah Mua and lock Tupou Vaa’i crossing for first-half tries to set up a narrow 10-6 advantage at the break. Fullback Etene Nanai opened the second half scoring by picking up a loose ball and showing his pace to race away to the tryline. Nanai’s try extended the lead to 17-6, before the New Zealand backline unleashed in the closing 15 minutes, crossing for three tries to get the win.
