POD 13th June

Gary Seear an ex All Black of the Club was the special presenter of the Player of the Day medals.
It was a big day at the Club, with a reunion of the 70s Championship team. They all loved seeing the Junior players get their medals and being a big part of the Club.

Ron Reggett Memorial retained in 25-17 win over Dunedin

The Premiers kept on their wining way downing a pugnacious Dunedin team at Kettle Park 25-17 on Saturday.

Despite a large possesion advantage the Magpies lacked penetration and flow in the backs, and the repetitive forward runners only really challenged the opposition defence 10 metres wide of the ruck and was predictable. The windy, cool conditions didn’t help the passing game but the team may have to reassess options against the strong defensive teams like Taieri and Harbour and utilise their exciting outside backs more in future matches.

The Premiers play Taieri at Peter Johnstone Park on Saturday. With University holidays now on the Premiers are the only team playing at the Club this weekend.

Match report from the Otago Daily Times:

Southern played with the wind at its back in the first half at Kettle Park but, to a degree, squandered that advantage and led by only six at the break.

First fives Bryce Hosie and Greg Dyer traded early penalties, before Southern started exerting territorial pressure. The Magpies were rewarded with a try after 15 minutes, after a series of pick and goes that led to prop Tom Scanlan crashing over close to the posts.

This fired up Dunedin, which dominated the next 15 minutes and scored in similar style, when flanker Hame Toma levelled the scores.

Dunedin conceded two late penalties to go into the half trailing by six. The game was transferred to the top ground early in the second spell after a spectator collapsed and an ambulance was called.

Southern won the game in the first 20 minutes of the half by playing into the wind rugby and holding the ball for long periods.

The Magpies could not score tries because of good Dunedin defence, but they were awarded plenty of penalties and kicked four to win the game.

Dunedin was not helped by having two players in the bin at various times, but scored the only try of the second half, when centre Tumua Ioane brushed off a few tackles to put Trent Renata under the bar.

That got the Sharks within five but they conceded a late penalty to miss the bonus point.

Prop Mike Mataafa was Southern’s best player. Mika Mafi and Dan Baxter were conspicuous in the loose but, apart from Bryce Hosie, Southern was lethargic out wide.

Halfback Tyrone Davies was Dunedin’s best, and Donald Brighouse, Mark Grieve Dunn and Danny Underwood stood out in the pack.

Other Results:
University A scored three tries in the final quarter and kicked a penalty on fulltime to seal a dramatic 29-28 win over Taieri on Saturday.

That win has seen the students move back into the top four at Dunedin’s expense. The Sharks suffered a 25-17 loss to Southern and their season is now poised precariously.

Harbour also made a move. Its comprehensive 50-22 win over Alhambra Union helped it leapfrog Southern at the top of the table. Both sides have the same points (64) but Harbour beat Southern earlier in the competition and has a better points differential.

Zingari Richmond posted six second half tries to run away with a 51-30 win over Pirates, while Kaikorai dispatched Green Island 44-12.
