McPherson Contractors Hinuera 10 defeated by Te Awamutu Sports 54
Our second game in the round of the Waikato rugby club competition was played at Albert Park in Te Awamutu on a chilly winter’s afternoon.
Hinuera came unstuck with their heaviest defeat of the season.
In the beginning play was evenly contested with the action centred near the half way line.
All of a sudden Paul Blyde burst from a maul and surged 40 metres to score, fending off the last defender.
Benji Olesen converted, 7-nil to Hinuera.
Unfortunately that was the first and only try the visitors scored.
Olesen adding a penalty later to complete Hinuera’s scoring.
The line speed by Te Awamutu in defense was very quick and hard to break down.
Hinuera conceded eight tries in total, some from situations such as over throwing a lineout while on defense.
Hopefully these errors can be corrected.
Jason Brady, operating as an extra ful back in the back pocket, often returned the ball with surging bursts.
Halfback Todd King got through a ton of work on defense.
Joint players of the day were Lachie McLaren and Josh Hawke.
The Hinuera B side also struggled in their match coming back in the second to lose 36-19.
Next week both teams are home to host Putaruru.
