Hautapu Sports’ senior rugby teams racked up 155 points between them in a weekend which saw plenty of free-flowing play.

The Waikato Premier A side beat Melville 55-28 to maintain their second-place in the standings, hot in pursuit of leaders Hamilton Marist who scraped home against four-placed Hamilton Old Boys on Saturday.

The Development team lost 49-43 to Melville in one of the weekend’s highest-scoring games.

Meanwhile, Hautapu Colts continued to extend their 100% winning start to the season with a 57-5 win against Hinuera at Memorial Park.

The Colts stay equal top of their competition.
