Hautapu hooker Shaye Retemeyer was a handful for the opposition in the Colts 57-5 victory over Hinuera at Memorial Park, Cambridge on Saturday.

The unbeaten Colts are now second on the 16-team Waikato Rugby table behind leaders Hamilton Marist on points difference.

Hautapu Sports’ senior rugby teams racked up 155 points between them in a weekend which saw plenty of free-flowing play.

The Waikato Premier A side beat Melville 55-28 to maintain their second-place in the standings, hot in pursuit of leaders Hamilton Marist who scraped home against fourth-placed Hamilton Old Boys.

The Development team lost 49-43 to Melville in one of the weekend’s highest-scoring games.

Hautapu Colts have the second-best attacking record with 176 points scored so far, and have the best defensive record with only 29 points conceded. They play Hamilton Boys High School on Saturday.
