WAIKATO WIN

Matamata Chronicle - - Out & About -

Waikato’s womens rugby team bounced back from a heavy loss in the open­ing round of the Farah Palmer Cup by beat­ing North Har­bour 22-12 in Mairangi Bay on Satur­day. It was the first clash be­tween the prov­inces since 2000, with North Har­bour mak­ing their de­but in New Zealand’s newly named top di­vi­sion of women’s rugby. And it was Waikato who took the spoils, with Chey Reti and Teirea Te Aho touch­ing down as first-five Tenika Wil­li­son kicked four penal­ties. Waikato held off North Har­bour’s chal­lenge in the sec­ond half, after they led 16-7 at the break.
