Team sec­ond on ta­ble

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport - By MERE­ANA AUSTIN

Mata­mata Col­lege U14 A rugby team has had a steady sea­son so far, be­gin­ning on on May 21 with a good win over Cam­bridge.

The team has a fur­ther nine games be­fore the semi-fi­nals on Au­gust 13.

Some of the team played to­gether at in­ter­me­di­ate school and two of the play­ers travel from Waitoa as their school didn’t have the num­bers to make up a team.

Team man­ager Eve Clut­ter­buck said it was nice they could play for the col­lege team.

The team is com­pet­ing in the Steve Gor­don Shield against nine other teams and are sitting sec­ond on the ta­ble.

Miss Clut­ter­buck said she was con­fi­dent of more wins as the team had been train­ing hard.

She said the team would like to thank coaches, Bevo and Des Tuhakaraina for their time, along with the sup­port of the play­ers’ par­ents, in par­tic­u­lar Har­ley Un­der­wood.

‘‘ We couldn’t have done this with­out them. They have helped with our suc­cess.’’
