posted in: News, Rugby, Uncategorized

Hautapu Sports have earned three more senior rugby victories with wins to the two Premiership sides and the club’s Colts team.

In close games with United Matamata Sports, the Premier A and B teams both registered wins to move up the standings.

The Premier A side won 29-25 to stay in second place, well-positioned behind completion leaders Hamilton Marist.

The Development side won their Premier B game 22-17 against Matamata to move into the top half of the standings.

Both sides travel to Melville next weekend.

The Hautapu Colts travelled to Te Awamutu for their 31-17 win, which keeps their 100% winning start to the season intact.

The Colts are one of three teams locked on 15 competition points after three rounds, in a congested table.

They are at home next week, ready to face Hinuera.
