Nelson College beaten at home


Marlborough Boys’ College has overcome the rain and mud to beat old foes Nelson College this afternoon.

The visitors beat Nelson 20-5 in the UC Championship rugby clash this afternoon, killing off any hope of a late comeback with a converted try ten minutes from time.

The game, filmed by Sky TV, attracted a good crowd despite the heavy rain. Marlborough were after revenge after Nelson knocked them out of the schools competition in last year’s semi final.
