In Motorworld Marlborough Division 1 semi-final action, Moutere produced an irresistible second half surge to comfortably overcome Central 47-14 and book their berth in the Final decider. Renwick went toe-to-toe with Waitohi before gaining late ascendancy at Lansdowne Park to emerge 29-20 victors.

I hope all teams enjoy the experience and leave nothing on the pitch. This weekend we have some intriguing battles in both the Motorworld Marlborough and The Car Company Nelson Bays competitions.
