B players seal win for Southern A
Southern United A played Frankton on Saturday at home on a very quiet Queens Birthday Weekend. There was no junior sports on and only a few keen supporters.
Southern opened the scoring with Zane Costar kicking a penalty.
With the home forwards dominating up front it was only seven minutes into the game for the first try to the fast-improving Logan Kana. This was followed by tries to Sean McKain, James Foster and James Sutherland. Three of the tries were converted by Zane for a 29-nil halftime lead.
Unfortunately for Southern A they had a number of players out injured or with work commitments so a very keen group of Bs stepped up and more than proved their worth. Notable performances were B’s halves Paddy Dodunski and Logan Costar.
Both put on an awesome display and Logan got to play his first A game with brother Zane.
The second half kicked off with pace for the home team and soon there were tries to Ned Honey and a second to Logan Kana before the game got a bit messy. Then a second try to James Sutherland and one to another fast improver Josh Barber along with three more conversions to Zane sealed the win for Southern United 55-3.
Of note for the home team was the games of Senior B prop Jamin Pinkerton, James Sutherland, Warwick Taylor and Zane Costar at fullback. Another great result and on to Leamington next week. Also, welcome back to Max Turnwald from England.
The Southern Bs had a bye and the Cavaliers went down 20-10 in a close game in Ohaupo at that club’s 125th jubilee.
