Rd 1 SAS Fox Memorial Premiership match reports

Rd 1 SAS Fox Memorial Premiership match reports
April 7, 2018

A wrap of the action from Round 1 of the 2018 SAS Fox Memorial Premiership.

Glenora Bears 10 Pt Chevalier 11

Pt Chevalier wrestled control of the Konica Minolta Roope Rooster, and the Stormont Shield, thanks to a late field goal which saw them edge past the defending-champion Glenora Bears. Tied at 10-apiece heading into the final 10 minutes, Tevin Arona delivered the killer blow from a drop goal. Glenora will rue the decision to twice turn down a penalty goal from in front of the sticks inside the final 20 minutes, which would have won them the game.

Richmond Bulldogs 16 Howick Hornets 26

A double to wing Connor Morris proved the difference in a nail-biter at Grey Lynn Park, as Howick edged past Richmond. With eight newcomers to their side, the Hornets looked strong through the middle of the park, but despite racing out to a 20-10 lead, couldn’t shake the determined Richmond outfit, who more than held their own against last year’s third-placed team.

Marist Saints 6 Otahuhu Leopards 30

The Otahuhu Leopards made a winning return to the SAS Fox Memorial Premiership, downing the Marist Saints 30-6. The Leopards were guilty of some early-season jitters, but built on an 18-0 half-time lead and put together some quality second-half tries. Marist battled against a heavy injury toll, which saw them play the back part of the match with no remaining interchanges.

Papakura Sea Eagles 10 Mt Albert Lions 30

The new-look Mt Albert Lions powered past Papakura, spurred on by a star showing from young hooker Johnny Falelua-Malio, who scored two tries and set up a third in the win. Despite the look of the eventual scoreline, Papakura showed plenty of promise, led well by their bulky forward pack.

Mangere East Hawks 10 Northcote Tigers 28

The Northcote Tigers travelled away to Mangere East and returned with the two points, helped along by a double to winger James Waterson and the accurate boot of captain Taylor Daniels. Trailing 18-0 at the break, the Hawks finished strong with two late tries, and will take plenty of confidence into next week’s clash with Marist.
