A double header on Trafalgar Park provided two contrasting matches. Marist were expansive defeating a determined but eventually out gunned Wanderers 38-12, while Nelson, despite scoring 1 try to Stoke’s 2, prevailed 22-12 in a scrappy match than failed to lift to great heights. Waimea Old Boys remained undefeated with a 17-6 win over Kahurangi at Riwaka.
Over in Seddon, East Coast continued to show form with a 26-17 win over a fast finishing Moutere, while at Renwick the home team went down 14-20 in a close match to Central.
