Rugby re­sults

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

North­ern United and Tawa kept their re­spec­tive Ju­bilee and Hard­ham as­pi­ra­tions on track with de­ter­mined wins on Satur­day.

Norths ac­counted for Up­per Hutt 29-16 at Maid­stone Park, gain­ing a cru­cial bonus point in the process. Steve Fa’atau, Ala­p­ati Leiua, AJ Va’alepu and Ai­den Cains dot­ted down.

Up­per Hutt lead 13-10 in the first half. Al­though it was only 22-16 go­ing into the last quar­ter, Cains sealed the win with a well-de­served try.

All of the Porirua for­wards stood up, with No 8 Dean Brund­son heav­ily in­volved, while backs Va’alepu, Leiua and Da­ley Harper were men­ac­ing all day.

The re­sult sees Norths hand­ily placed in fourth – they face a win­less Pe­tone this week­end.

Tawa came up against a tough Poneke B side at Lyn­d­hurst Park. They came away with the 24-3 win but fell a try short of get­ting a bonus point.

Tawa sit sixth and face Norths B at Porirua Park this Satur­day.
