Victory to Toa in Tawa sevens tournament
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.
