It was another action-packed weekend of club rugby Saturday 6 May.
In the Counties Power game of the week, Waiuku Brian James Contracting lost to a too-strong Manurewa Kidd Contracting team 17- 31 during the Pat Walsh Memorial match. It was the last match for referee Simon Brown who has been reffing for 18 years.
Bombay Gough Cat beat Te Kauwhata Envirowaste 38-20. Bombay is now one point behind Patumahoe after their win.
Onewhero Counties Bulk Haulage claimed a win over Pukekohe Mitre 10 Mega, 17-13. Onewhero have a three-game win streak and now sit in a clear fifth place, and are looking to continue their winning ways into the second round.
Karaka dominated Papakura Ray White 93-5, holding on to a third place after the first round. The score saw tries from Kalione Hala 3, Deniro Refiti 2, Nicholas Worthington 2, Sunia Vosikata 2, Dylan Du Plessis 2, Seluini Molia, Ralulu Bavou, Desma Liaina, Cardiff Vaega and conversions from Cardiff Vaega 7 and Antonio Lavemai.

And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
