It was a beautiful sunny day but the sun was quite low on the horizon making it difficult playing into it. There was no wind of any concern and the mercury struggled to get to double digits. Commentary coming to you from the scoreboard grandstand.John ‘JC’ Cable was kindly present to correct my errors.Notable performancesSam Coombs’ nose for the line has to earn him a spot on the list!Dale Sabbagh has become a true leader in the backline over the last few years and the team as a whole. His goalkicking was superb, he was always dangerous on the attack and precise on defence.Matt Fowler was very busy and must have been annoying for the Johnsonville forwards! His distribution was solid and his dabs around the side meant defenders had to stay on him rather than drifting out to the ball runners.It was good to see Reece Plumtree back at this level. He only had 2 or 3 runs but they counted.The whole front row deserves massive ups for a truly dominant performance.The locking combination of James and Taine together with Caleb on the flank gives some great height at the lineout and all three showed great skills and pace around the park while still doing the tight work when needed.How the game unfolded5 mins – OBU turnover a Johnsonville lineout the ball goes out to the left and back to the right a few times before Sam Coombs crashes over the line. Converted by Dale Sabbagh7-0 OBU lead11 mins – Johnsonville on the attack. OBU turns it over and Callum Harkin clears it downfield for Sam Reid to chase. Sam gets up to pressure well but with the naked eye, it looked like he was stepped and instinctively put the foot out which partially tripped the Johnsonville player. Clubrooms discussion afterwards reveals Sam says he went to kick the ball as the Johnsonville player picked it up. Either way, it doesn’t matter the ref calls him over to issue the yellow card.17 mins – OBU is camped on the Johnsonville line. After a few pick and goes Shamus Langton charges to the right side of the ruck and gets over but is held up.18 mins – From the resulting scrum Dale runs it around the outside of the defence and into the right-hand corner. The ref calls it back for a scrum to Johnsonville. I assume it was lost forward in the dive but the referees signal isn’t clear from my position.22 mins – OBU elects a scrum deep in Johnsonville territory after taking the penalty advantage. The ball is cleared to the right and Dale goes around the defenders and dots in the corner and converts it.14-0 OBU lead27 mins – OBU is penalised 30 meters out in front of the sticks the Johnsonville kicker lines it up but launchers a worm-burner. The score is unchanged.37 mins – Matt Fowler breaks around the side of the ruck where Johnsonville had been too slow to mark up. He gets in behind the defence quickly, commits the defender and offloads to Taine Plumtree who saw the opportunity opening up and gassed it to be in support for the pass. Dale converts it.21-0 OBU lead39 mins – Great move down the right-wing. Jack Green runs onto the ball and makes a quick 30 metres before chipping it deep into Johnsonville territory. Matt Fowler runs onto the ball and gets taken in a good solid tackle. There is some phase play before Jack Green gets over the line but it’s knocked on.40 mins – OBU launches a dominant scrum and turns over the Johnsonville feed. Adding insult to injury the scrum drives over the line for Shamus to claim the pushover try.  Dale keeps the kicking run intact by slotting the conversion.Half Time 28-0 OBU lead42 mins – OBU makes a mistake running the ball out from our own territory. Johnsonville turns it over. It looks like it’s going to be a regulation run in for the halfback but he gets caught in a good cover tackle. The loosehead prop for Johnsonville ducks around to the right of the posts to claim the pot of gold.28-7 OBU lead45 mins – OBU brings the ball out from their own territory. Caleb Delaney launches a big long cut-out pass to James Poloniati who steams in from about 35 meters to dot down in the corner. Conversion misses. Reece Plumtree comes on for Callum Harkin.33-7 OBU lead52 mins –  Shamus runs in a try from around halfway outstripping the defenders for sheer pace. Conversion misses. Subs Caleb, Taine, James, Kenan, Matt Fowler off. Replaced by Sam Godwin, Josh Gimblett, Tiaki Fabish, Matt Sleith and Kyle Preston.38-7 OBU lead55 mins – Great run down the right-wing by Reece with a great inside pass to Sam Reid to finish it off. The conversion was successful. Lawrence Lim on for Fui. Lawry, a popular figure, gets a rousing reception from his mates in the Prem Reserve and Colts teams watching on from up on the terraces.45-7 OBU Lead70 mins – Sam Reid takes a good run down the right-hand side of the field and releases the pass to Reece running off his shoulder. Reece cuts back on the angle to the posts to shake any last hopes of a Johnsonville defender covering.52-7 OBU lead78 mins – Johnsonville penalised in their own 22, quick tap taken but comes to nothing Johnsonville not back 10 so we go again. Eventually, Johnsonville number 15 can’t help but play the ball on the ground. He gets a yellow card for his troubles.Final Score 52-7 to OBUScorersShamus Langton 2 x Tries.Taine Plumtree, Dale Sabbagh, Reece Plumtree, James Poloniati, Sam Reid, Sam Coombs – 1 Try eachDale Sabbagh 6 x ConversionsThe post Match Report Rd 4 Swindale – OBU notch up solid victory in Wellington College homecoming appeared first on OBU Rugby.

      • WESTS 34 WAINUI 0. Against a plucky Wainui, the Roosters took a time to settle into the match, leading 6-0 for much of the first half. Goal kicking prop Andrew Newson, who also slotted all four conversions, kicked penalties in the 10th and 15th minutes.

      • 13 May 2012
      • Western Suburbs Rugby Football Club
      • It was last-minute heartbreak for Wests at the Cage. The first quarter set the tone for the game, MSP on attack while Wests defended hard, led by openside flanker Scott Fuglistaller. MSP openside flanker Sio Tuia and Wests' Taulagi Lepupa traded tries in the opening 20 minutes, but prop Andrew Newson's two penalties and a conversion gave Wests the lead at halftime.

In the first two minutes No 8 Sam Blair went over for the first of his double, which was followed up 20 minutes later by a try from flanker Rolagi Lepupa. Just after halftime centre Claude Collier scored for Rimutaka, closing the gap to 13-17, after reserve first five-eighth Ray McDonald had kicked two penalties. In the last 10 minutes, after Wests had turned down two kickable penalties, Blair broke off the back of the scrum to score his second try and put the game beyond Rimutaka's reach.

    • Poneke Week Ahead 25/07/11
      • 25 Jul 2011
      • Poneke Rugby
      • The weather on Saturday was abysmal and for many visiting teams the thought of playing Poneke at a wet Kilbirnie Park is off-putting to say the least. The grounds however were still open and the rain still poured down so it was an interesting afternoon to see which squad could get over the conditions the quickest and play rugby in spite of the glacial rain and sub-zero wind. The first to the showers were the Colts vs Norths with the Colts demolishing their opposition 42-5. The boys played out on Kilbirnie 3 and the results speaks volumes of their sheer tenacity to play wet weather rugby and push their position on the BNZ Age Grade competition. Great work gentlemen!

    • Poneke Week Ahead 11/07/11
      • 11 Jul 2011
      • Poneke Rugby
      • Depending on your location within Wellington on Saturday - it was a meta-physical representation of the Crowded House song 'Four Seasons In One Day' with the sun shining brilliantly in the morning and scoff at the predicted rain forecast for the day to actual hail storms and visibility so poor that the lights had to be turned on for the Premier match up in Upper Hutt. For our top 2 Premier teams - wet weather rugby is our bread and butter, so seeing the rain forecast is like a thirsty man seeing a drinking well in the middle of a desert. However the weather again provided the perfect metaphor for the Premiers with the 2 halves being as different as Winter and Summer against Ories at Polo Ground.

    • Sat 9 April v OBU
      • 10 Apr 2011
      • Western Suburbs Rugby Football Club
      • OLD BOYS UNIVERSITY outflanked the Wests Roosters just enough times to quell a feisty comeback in an entertaining match at Nairnville. The students' try-scorers are often in the backs and it was their willingness to move the ball wide that proved the difference as they opened up a 22-3 lead.

      • Wellington Club Weekly
      • The ace goal kicking of Hurricanes and All Blacks halfback Piri Weepu and a third straight loss for defending Jubilee Cup champions Marist St. Pat's were two of the talking points of a compelling third round set of Swindale Shield matches played across Wellington on Saturday.

      • 1 May 2009
      • Western Suburbs Rugby Football Club
      • Wests 19 (S Fuglistaller try; C Brown con; 4 pen). With a stiff northerly blowing down the ground at Helston Park, the local derby was always going to be dictated to by the conditions, and that's what eventuated with all 31 points scored with the wind advantage.
