Club Rugby Report 1-4-2017

Hauraki North, Thames and Paeroa West recorded their first wins of the season in Round Two of the Thames Valley Senior Club Rugby competition. Cobras made it two wins in a row to sit alone at the top of the table while McClinchy Cup holders, Waihou had the bye this week.

Cobras winning form carried over to this week as they beat Mercury Bay by 24-17 at Whitianga. Outscoring the home side by four tries to three, the Cobras three quarters dominated the scoring with winger Dylan Robinson getting two and centre Rico de Thierry and fullback Tyrone Keith, one each. Liam Shields added two conversions. Tim Bryson, Regan Crosland and Cody Muir replied for Mercury Bay.

Paeroa West bounced back from last week’s loss to Mercury Bay with a 58-12 victory over Coromandel in Paeroa. The Magpies ran in ten tries to Coromandel’s two at Leach’s Field where a feature of the game was a hat trick of tries to winger Stevie Ray Searancke and four conversions by Tipene Morunga. The win gave West its first points of the season and Searancke’s was the first hat trick of tries by a club player this year.

Hauraki North got back on track after a narrow defeat in the opening round, with a strong showing against Whangamata at Waitakaruru. Two early penalties to North helped them settle down and constant pressure and a wealth of possession lead to further points as they built a 44-0 lead at the break. Whangamata never gave up and can draw some consolation from a 22-12 second half effort. However the 66-12 final score reflects Hauraki North’s dominance throughout the game.

Thames made its first appearance of the season at Waihi’s Kenny Street ground and started in the best possible fashion by beating Waihi Athletic 23-19. With Tairua not fielding a team this year, Josh Law is playing for Thames and scored two tries to mark the occasion. Hiwawa Kahu scored a third try and Jarrod Goodall kicked two conversions and a penalty. Waihi made too many errors and struggled to get going until late in the game when they threatened to save the game but the points didn’t come and they had to settle for a bonus point loss instead.

Hauraki North made it two wins from two outings in the Senior B competition as they proved too strong for the visiting Mercury Bay side, scoring seven tries in a 45-7 win.

Paeroa Old Boys kept up with North after inflicting a heavy home defeat on Ngatea at Hugh Hayward Domain. Old Boys scored nine tries in winning 57-5 while Terence Potter was Ngatea’s sole try scorer.

Waihi Athletic came back from a disappointing first up loss to defeat Thames 32-14 in the curtain raiser at Waihi.

In the first local derby of the year in Te Aroha, Waihou came out on top, to clinch victory in a close game by 17-10 over Cobras.
