Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

The Porirua Vik­ings roared into sec­ond place in the Welling­ton club rugby league stand­ings with an em­phatic 38- 8 win over Up­per Hutt on Satur­day.

They were only ahead 12-8 at the half, af­ter play­ing into a stiff breeze at As­cot Park, but ran in five tries in the sec­ond spell. Jon Masaga was awarded man of the match as he helped his for­ward pack lay a plat­form to se­cure the win.

An­ton Wereta and Jar­rod Mcdon­ald also crossed the line in the romp.

St Ge­orge, mean­while, stayed with Te Aroha for much of their match but cru­cial er­rors and a late surge from the reign­ing pre­miers got them home 32-20.

The re­sults sees Porirua a sin­gle point be­hind the un­beaten Wainuiomata, while St Ge­orge re­main on the foot of the ta­ble. The Dragons play Univer­sity at Kel­burn on Satur­day, while the Vik­ings go to Te Whiti Park to take on Te Aroha.
