Weekend Wrap-up vs Clifton
Last weekend out Tikorangi vs Clifton it was a mix of memorable and forgettable performances.
The Colts, with the added pressure of playing an emotional Clifton Colts side for in the Waisea Nala Naumotu Kava Bowl continued their fantastic form from the previous week seeing the lead change hands many times. Clifton scored a few late tries to take the win.
The Colts should feel proud of their efforts. Well done lads, keep it up.
Final score: Clifton 36 – Spotswood United 28.
Division One had a similar tussle, finding themselves behind early, but taking all the opportunities to stay in touch with a strong Clifton side. It wasn’t until after full-time had ticked over that Spotswood United grabbed a late try to level it all up, only needing the conversion to grab the win.
Two wins from three this year is an awesome start for the season.
Final score: Spotswood United 24 – Clifton 22.
The Premiers started off with a hiss and a roar as we welcomed back Ale Feaunati’s back into the Premier backline. Ale’s first touch of the ball on his 32nd all-time start for the Premiers had the bench on their feet with and powerful bust in the midfield from 60 out, leading to the first 5-pointer from Meli Sifa with only a two minutes gone on the clock.
Apart from a try out wide to Bailey Hawyard-Kingi in the 28th minute it was one-way traffic from the Clifton Backline running in plenty of tries.
Certainly a tough day at the office for the Premier side, but thank you to the three forwards that were playing in very unfamiliar positions in the backline as the injury toll added up. The premiers will enjoy welcoming their missing backs that were away for this game next week. Final score: Clifton: 77 – Spotswood United 15.
Congratulations to the Spotswood United Hooker, who not only officially announced he’s expecting a baby, despite to loss, got down on one knee post-game. Congrats Chandhlar and Learra.
