Waimea rack up big rugby win over Marlborough


Waimea Combined have taken just two games to throw the cat amongst the pigeons in the Crusaders secondary school rugby competition by demolishing Marlborough Boys’ College 42-19 at Waimea College today.

The new Waimea combined team has players from not only Waimea College, but also Nayland College, Garin College, Motueka High School and Golden Bay High School.

The win will send a shock through the competition with Marlborough Boys’ College regularly considered top four contenders. Just four days ago Marlborough beat Christchurch Boys High School, a team considered favourites to win the UC Championship, as it’s now known.

Waimea kicked off the season with a strong 23-10 win over St Thomas of Canterbury on Saturday.
