Leamington colts steal the win

Senior A’s Jack Ayrton

Senior A vs SURF

Leamington started slowly with only a penalty to show for the first half. SURF (Southern United Rugby Football Club) created pressure and converted to points, 24-3 by half time. Leamington responded well to a half time rev up and started making the opportunities stick.

A try each to Malakai Uasi and Carl Nelsen, a drop goal to Jared Allen Baker, and three penalties and a conversion to Regan Erueti put Leamington right in the game. Surf scored one second half try.

Hammering hard at the line for last five minutes left Leamington close but not close enough and Surf won 29-24. Player of the day was Todd King.


Senior B vs SURF

Senior B’s Adin Bolton.

A tough day at the office for the Bs against SURF. Tries by Mick Wright and Matt Kennedy were Leamington’s only scores, in a 25-10 loss. Player of the day was Karl Bolton.

Regal Agriculture Under 21 Colts vs Hamilton Old Boys

A close-fought battle away at Hamilton Old Boys grounds. Two tries by Connor Muir, one for Liam Rickwood and three conversions by Robert Day was enough to seal the win 21-17. Player of the day was Liam Nelley.
