Semi Finals a calling

Different results but the same outcome – our Women’s team powered to a home semi-final with a solid win against 3rd placed OBU. The Premier Reserves after threatening all season defeated unbeaten OBU to secure a semi-final spot with two weeks of round robin to go and our Premiers probably got the result they wanted despite losing to OBU and will play them again next week in the 1 V 4 semi. Our Colts lost to MSP with the lack of a kicker costing them despite scoring 3 tries to 2 and our Presidents team were part of a fantastic display of rugby, unfortunately most of it by the opposition.

Over at ASB a draw for Ories 1 and byes for 2 and 3.

Match Reports

Premiers

ORIENTAL RONGOTAI 13(James Procter try, con, 2 Pen).

OLD BOYS UNIVERSITY 21 (Luke Campbell, Huey van Vliet, Alex Barendregt tries; Luke Campbell 3 Con

HT: 0-6.

Best and Fairest: 3 points: Luke Campbell (OBU Halfback), 2 points: Lucky Tuiatua (Ories No.8), 1 point: Huey van Vliet (OBU Flanker)

Venue: Basin Reserve

What happened: Old Boys University finished the Jubilee Cup round robin unbeaten in grinding out a hard-fought victory over Ories. Both sides will now regroup and square off again next week in the semi-final.

In a tight first half, neither side was able to build lasting pressure as the slippery conditions led to numerous handling errors and stoppages. Ories were able to take a narrow advantage into the break courtesy of the accurate boot of James Proctor.

The second half started off in lively fashion as Proctor finished off an elusive burst from flyer Ambrose Curtis to provide Ories a handy advantage. It was all OBU from there though as firstly halfback Luke Campbell dashed and bashed over. Then; after sustained pressure, Huey van Vliet dived on a loose ball over the line to put his team in front.

Both sides emptied their benches with Ories introducing some of their normal starters but to no avail as prop Alex Barendregt scored late to secure the result for the home team.

Who stood out: It was a day for the forwards and the OBU loose forward trio of Teariki Ben Nicholas, Mitch Clarke and van Vliet were prominent. Campbell controlled play and kicked well from halfback. For Ories, No. 8 Lucky Tuiatua was strong with the ball while Curtis was dangerous.

The upshot: Same time, same place next week for these two teams. OBU will start deserved favourites after their impressive unbeaten run but will be wary of Ories who have game-breakers throughout their side.

Rongotai College 1st XV –no game this week – school holidays!

Remember to visit the college rugby website www.rcrugby.org.nz for more info on all college results and upcoming events

Premier Reserve

Ories 24 Tries to Steve Fa’atau, Tunga Mativa, Ola Vaai and Pama Mativa. Teara Henderson and Peter Fa’atau kicked a conversion each.

OBU 18

It has taken 7 rounds but finally our top of the table Premier Reserves scored a 4 try bonus point! In a crossover match against unbeaten OBU Ories took it to them with 4 beautifully crafted tries with the forwards doing the hard work and the backs running hard to establish a healthy lead by the 61st minute. OBU are a good side as their record shows and came back strongly in the final quarter but the team held strong with Sani Fa’amausili getting through a tower of work.

The team is now guaranteed a semi final spot with two weeks to go and with games against two of the lower teams to come a home semi on August 8th looks likely.

Women’s

Ories 29

Avalon 5

No report received but we do know it was 12-5 at oranges. The team will now play a semi-final against 4th placed finisher Avalon at The Polo 11.30 Saturday

Colts

Ories15 Tries to Losi Patu, Liga Leota and Ben Liua’ana

MSP 16

Lack of territorial play and a decent kicker determined our game. Lead changed a few times but some positive rugby in the mud

Losi Patu with individual skill to chip from inside our 22, chase, regather and outrun his opposite to score in the corner.

Liga Leota hard to stop 10 meters from the line and ran through 6 players from a tap penalty to score out wide.

Phil Cunningham combined well with Ben Liua'ana to score from a 5 meter scrum out wide with an 8-9 move.

MM

Presidents

Ories Pressies were to play Avalon at Polo 1. We even had a proper ref, a bonus for once. Due to ground changes, we got moved to Polo 2. No worries we thought, smaller field and the ground looked good. Well, we were extremely wrong.

Ories finally have enough players to, not only play the game, but had spares. 19 all up. Thankyou to all that did turn up to play in our muddy conditions.

Avalon turned up with their 17 players all ready to perform. And they definitely did.

Try after try after try, the Avalon guys got. Ories had to answer for their well organised running. We hit hard, ran the line, but to no result. We could not stop their tries. We finally got the ball in our hands, ran through a "little tired" defence for Moni to go over for a try. No conversation, but we were back in the game. But that didn’t stop the Avalon guys from showing us up again with good foot work and charging through to get yet another try. Conversion over.  Ories were stunned. What did they have to do to stop these guys? Just on halftime, Ories saw the light and ran the middle of the field, passes going everywhere, powering the line to cross for a try. It was James. YES, we got through. Still no conversion.

Halftime score 10 - 27.

Bayden and Dan talked to the Ories team, trying to work out, how to stop this Avalon team. Game plan was set, subs came on, and second half was going to be our half. Well, that’s what we thought. Second half starts. It was just like the first half. Avalon found the energy to play as hard as they had before. Yet again, try after try was scored. Ories could slow the Avalon team down, but not stop them from scoring tries. They converted two of their tries.  They scored 24 unanswered points. Final score 10 - 51.

Might not have been our day, but the game was played in good spirit and no one got down when they had tries scored against them. Still smiles on their faces. Both teams shared a beer or two in the clubrooms, laughing and egging each other on.

The Spy

Netball

Ories 1 – drew with St Catherine’s 27 all

After a week off Ories 1 were back in action and matched up with a team they hadn’t played before. St Catherine’s 1 proved to be a deceiving opponent at the start of the game but came out firing in the second half. The lead that was established by Ories 1 was hunted down aggressively by the college team. They applied pressure on the girls forcing errors but Ories 1 held their own and went fierce defensively. Midcourt led by Caitlin was strong and provided the support needed to gain intercepts and gain successful goals. Caitlin was instrumental in getting much needed possession when St Caths threatened to take the lead which is why she was player of the match. Tough game but Ories 1 kept them at bay with a draw at the final whistle.

Ories 2- no game

There are now 14 teams in Premier Rugby but we will only play 11 in the Swindale Shield – unfortunately this means that we will not play North’s or MSP in the first round. Next year we will miss out on playing two different teams if the format remains the same.

 

Replacing Senior 1st this season is Premier Reserve – in all cases our team will play the curtain raiser an hour and 45 minutes beforehand unless it is at a different ground than the Premiers game in which case it will be two hours beforehand.

Whoop Whoop Women go top of the table!!

What a game – top of the table clash, a rematch of last year’s final and a dress rehearsal for this year’s final- our Women now sit alone on top of the table.

In the early game transferred to Polo #2 our Premier Reserves put the Axeman to the sword but our Premiers couldn’t quite pull it off against the Aleman’s Premiers but the bonus point ensures we are in the semi-finals for the 5th consecutive year with a week to go – well done guys!

Over at ASB a bye for Ories 1, one win, one loss!

Match Reports

Premiers

ORIENTAL RONGOTAI 22 (Aukuso Tuitama, Tuakana Metuarau, Steve Fa'atau tries; James Proctor 2 con, 1 pen).

WELLINGTON  29 (Hilton Mexted 2, Vaea Fifita 2 tries; Adam Deck 3 con, 1 pen).   Ories 22 (Aukuso Tuitama, Tuakana Metuarau, Steve Fa'atau tries; James Proctor 2 con, 1 pen).

HT: 19-3.

Best & fairest: 3 points- Hilton Mexted (Wgtn five eighth), 2 points- Saimon Lomaloma (Ories flanker), 1 point- Matthew Goosen (Wgtn centre).

Venue: Polo Ground, Miramar.

What happened: The Axemen looked keen to sew up this match within the first half of play, controlling possession and making the most of their opportunities. Their early intent put Ories onto the back foot, running them off the park. It wasn't until the final stages of the match before Ories remembered how to utilise their talented attack.

Wellington had a clear cohesion and support play where Ories did not, and when you give Vaea Fifita a loose ball and space then he is going to make you pay, as he did with a characteristic 70-metre run to the tryline. Ories fought back late in the piece but fell short to the deserving victors.

Who stood out: Hilton Mexted two early tries gave Wellington early momentum that they held onto for much of the match. His second, an intercept, totally crushed Ories as they were started to control the ball. Saimon Lomaloma's ball carrying efforts were standout and his work-rate immense for the whole 80 minutes.  Matthew Goosen produced some well-timed runs from the midfield, as did his opposites Paulo Aukuso and Ben Tuiatua.

The upshot: The Axemen lift themselves from the bottom of the ladder with their first win in the Jubilee cup and will look to finish the season on a high against HOBM next weekend. Ories stay in the finals hunt despite a less than satisfactory performance at home. It won't get any easier against an unbeaten OBU outfit in the final round.

Rongotai College 1st XV –no game this week – school holidays!

Remember to visit the college rugby website www.rcrugby.org.nz for more info on all college results and upcoming events

Premier Reserve

Ories 24 Tries to Asosi Leauma, Viliamu Faaea and Ken Aperila who also kicked a conversion plus Teara Henderson kicked 2 conversions and Ropati Fa’atoafe drop kicked a goal!

Wellington 8

What a game – Wellington were never in it with their sole try scored in the last few minutes of the match. Dominant  at scrum and lineout our guys took it to Wellington for the whole 80 minutes with discipline a big improvement as the team looks to of secured a finals berth and with 3 games to go including games  cellar dwellers Avalon and Johnsonville you can be assured the team will be aiming to stay Number #1.

Women’s

Ories 29 Tries to Timena Tumaai, Alicia Print, Faasua Makisi and Ngaire Lind. Lizzie Goulden kicked 3 conversions and a penalty.

North’s 27

What a game! Ories rocketed out to a 26-5 lead at oranges thanks to some great running by the backs and some deadly kicking by Lizzie Goulden which included two sideline conversions, one from each side!

The second half was a North’s onslaught as they ran in 4 tries but the value of Lizzie’s kicking became evident as North’s only succeeded with one conversion while a neatly taken penalty by Lizzie earlier in the half turned out to be the difference.

With a week to go a home semi final spot seems assured with the likelihood of meeting North’s on August 1st in a repeat of last year’s final.

Colts V OBU

This was a catch up game as in the spirit of co-operation we agreed to defer our game last week against OBU as most of their players are Varsity students who had gone home for the holidays. All other Colts games were cancelled so this was a chance to play the game.

Kicked off at 4.30 on the artificial at St Pats – unfortunately the lights didn’t come on and by 5.00 the game was called off-we’ll call it a draw!

Presidents-cancelled

Netball

Ories 1 - Bye

Ories 2 Extremely close game! We almost had it, fought hard in all 4 quarters but came up short by two points.  Not the outcome we wanted.  However, extremely happy with how the team executed a lot of the skills they have been practising in trainings.  It was pretty to watch :)

MVP: The whole team.  Everyone left everything they had in the tank on the court. What more can you ask for?

Score: 29 - 27 to St Francis

Ories 3 won 30-24 against Wgtn East. A tight game the whole way but Ories managed to convert on turnovers. Great game to watch
