Waimea tops as Stoke and Wanderers draw


Defending champions Waimea Old Boys have already established a lead at the top of the Car Company Nelson Bays division one club rugby competition, after a strong 24-7 win over Marist at Jubilee Park on Saturday afternoon.

In Riwaka, Kahurangi also maintained its unbeaten run, pipping Nelson 20-19. While Stoke and Wanderers played out a 27-all draw at Nayland College.

Waimea’s man of the match was blindside flanker Peter Samu. Despite Waimea’s dominance early in the game, Marist fought hard and had the hosts under considerable pressure for long parts of the second half.

Division two results so far:
Waimea Old Boys 33, Marist 0.
Nelson 13, Riwaka 8.
