Success despite high injury toll
Putaruru Seniors hosted Pirongia on Saturday afternoon and as always a strong home crowd was present. Coming from a bruising affair against Tokoroa on Wednesday night we had to rejig our side with a number of players making their Senior debut.
The game was a typical forward battle in the opening exchanges as both sides battled to gain dominance.
The game wasn’t a free flowing affair the side has become known for, with players having to play out of position. However Putaruru endeavoured to play an expansive style and get the ball out wide. The score line outlined a close game as the Putaruru Seniors took the spoils 12-5.
The Senior Bs showed earlier in the day how to shut a game out in style as they trounced the Pirongia B side 49-13.
