RANGIORA HIGH School First
XV will be highly skilled in wet
weather rugby when they begin
the Press Cup on May 4.
The side gave a strong
account of themselves in a
sodden Christchurch Boys' High

Saturday's opening game was
a loss for Rangiora but it was
cause for celebration.
The 24-19 loss to Takapuna
Grammar, one of New Zealand's
top rugby schools, was a close
affair with the scores tied at
12-all at halftime.
Rangiora went close to scoring
an equaliser in the dying
The second match, played in
atrocious conditions on Sunday
morning, was a clinical display
from the Rangiora boys, who ran
up a 50-3 score against Auck-
land's Kristin College in a shor-
tened 40-minute match.
The third game was against
another top side, Fielding High
School. The northerners took a
comfortable victory 22-0. There
were, however, many positives
for Rangiora in the Sunday
afternoon match with coaches
giving the team 10 out of 10 for
effort and physicality.
The final match on Monday
was a polished and brutal per-
formance from Rangiora, who
thumped Christchurch Boys'
High School's Second XV 59-0.
Marcus Hendriks was named
Rangiora's forward of the tour-

backs was taken by Daniel

NORTH CANTERBURY'S leading
teams enjoyed another good day in
Saturday's round of the Luisetti
Seeds combined country rugby com-
Ashley kept its winning streak
alive when clinically dealing to Dar-
field at the Loburn Domain.
The game, along with all matches
in the combined competition, was
played in appalling wet conditions,
but it did not deter both sides from
trying to play constructive rugby.
Ashley adjusted to the conditions
well and scored four tries -- two in
each half -- to secure a bonus point.
Ashley led 17-8 at the break, and
effectively put the game out of
Darfield's reach early in the second
half when their forwards rumbled
towards the line and Eathan
Cameron scrambled over to score.
Ashley's victory keeps them at the
top of the section two table along
with Lincoln from the Ellesmere sub
Oxford handed defending cham-
pions Southbridge their first defeat
of the season, sneaking home 10-9.
Saracens backed up last week's
impressive victory in dry conditions
with an equally impressive display
on a wet Southbrook Park. After
leading Burnham 14-0 at halftime,
Saracens never let up and went on to
Glenmark came from behind to
beat Mid Canterbury side Southern
13-7 at Omihi Domain.
The home side gained some control
up front in the second half and
scored the only try of the match
through Jim Gardiner. Matt Keane
kicked two penalties.
Coming off the bye, Kaiapoi trav-
elled south to Dunsandel and came
away with a 12-all draw.
Dunsandel-Irwell scored two tries
but Kaiapoi stayed in touch with
Ohoka's fortunes improved but not
enough to beat Prebbleton.
They scored their first try of the
season but were comfortably headed
