Victory to Toa in Tawa sev­ens tour­na­ment

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Toa were the win­ners of the in­au­gu­ral Tawa Sev­ens com­pe­ti­tion last month, top­pling Tawa White in the fi­nal.

A bumper crowd were treated to en­ter­tain­ment, on and off the field, on Fe­bru­ary 21.

Af­ter trail­ing 7-5 at half­time, to a bril­liant in­di­vid­ual try from Tawa’s TJ Fer­ma­nis, Toa’s star im­port Jack­son Gar­den-Ba­chop was the hero, sprint­ing nearly 50 me­tres to score the match­win­ner in the sec­ond spell.

In the semi­fi­nals, Toa knocked over the Fi­jian Fly­ers 17- 14, scor­ing three tries early but with­stand­ing late pres­sure from the Fly­ers. Tawa White de­feated Manawatu Fi­jians 19-7, romp­ing away af­ter it was 7-7 at half­time.

In the plate the Bawl­dogs, who were beaten by Toa in pool play, beat Welling­ton Ax­e­men 17-12 in ex­tra time.
