Hautapu won the first challenge for the new Cambridge Referees’ Cup for club colts with a 20-10 win over Leamington on Saturday.
There was no shortage of refs in town as the Cambridge referees’ association celebrated its centenary at a function which attracted about 110 people.
They heard some entertaining stories from former All Black Frank Bunce who also talked about how the game had changed since he was in his prime.
The trophy was donated to mark the centenary and will be contested annually between the two clubs. It replaces a trophy the referees had previously put up as a challenge between Cambridge High and St Peters, who now play in different competitions.
