Late run not enough to save Country
By MAT KERMEEN
Breaking good: Saracens second five Brett Hancox makes a break from his make-shift role of halfback.
IT TOOK the best part of an hour
for the Canterbury Country rugby
team to hit second gear, but a late
comeback was not enough to get
past Canterbury Maori.
Both teams were desperate for
their first win in the second round
of the South Island Invitational
tournament at Rugby Park on
Saturday, but it was Canterbury
Maori who prevailed 33-23.
A second loss in as many
weeks was frustrating for
Country, who were more than
capable of winning.
It started strong, but it was
Canterbury Maori who scored
first through lock Ethan Plaskett.
Shannon Donald kicked a pen-
alty for Country, but his opposite
Tyrone Elkington immediately
replied to take the score to 8-3.
Country's best chance of the
half came after a scintillating 60
metre break from its fullback, for-
mer Glenmark player Brook
Retallick. Three phases later --
after some nice passing through
backs and forwards -- Saracens'
flanker Willie Kerr knocked on
when a try looked imminent.
Despite desperate goal line
defence from Country, Matt Stone
charged over for Canterbury
Maori's second try.
It was converted by Elkington,
but a Donald added a third
penalty on the stroke of halftime
closed the gap to 15-9.
Two Elkington penalties
stretched the lead to 21-9 with 20
minutes to play after a scrappy
Electric Country winger Willie
McGoon was starved of quality
ball, but scored a sharp try and
displayed his brilliance when he
got his chance.
Donald's sideline conversion
reduced the deficit to five points.
Canterbury Maori hit straight
back with a deflating blow for
Country when Plaskett ran
through some soft defence to score
his second try.
Not done with, Country's Brett
Hancox scored a well-deserved
try, but it had left its run too late.
In a beaten effort the Saracens
second five -- forced to move into
halfback at halftime -- starred
with a gritty display and deserved
his late try.
The North Canterbury presence
was bolstered by Oxford hooker
Richard Taylor who returned from
a week off last week to captain the
side and delivered his typical
Retallick was a steady hand at
the back and Brad Hazeldine's
speed created opportunities when
he came off the bench.
Canterbury Country return to
Rugby Park this Saturday to take
on Canterbury Metro.
