RUGBY LEAGUE FI­NAL

Matamata Chronicle - - Out & About -

Hamil­ton Marist se­cured Waikato club rugby’s Colts ti­tle by thrash­ing Otoro­hanga 41-10 in the fi­nal at Marist Park on Satur­day. The only blem­ish on an oth­er­wise per­fect sea­son for Marist was a 12-12 draw with Otoro­hanga at the same venue in the penul­ti­mate round of fix­tures in the reg­u­lar sea­son. But 29 unan­swered points in the sec­ond half saw Marist blow Otoro­hanga off the park after a tight open­ing 40. The game’s turn­ing point came just after the in­ter­val, with Marist lead­ing 12-10, when the hosts scored two break­away tries down the right edge from charge downs.
