PREVIEW: Hautapu Sports’ squads named for Saturday’s senior rugby fixtures

posted in: News, Rugby

Hautapu Sports will host Otorohanga in the first game of the Waikato Premier Rugby’s second round.

Hautapu finished second over the nine rounds of the first phase of the competition, while Otorohanga came fourth on the ladder.

In their last encounter, in late May, the Hautapu Sports and Otorohanga drew in the Premier A first round competition.

The match is the 2.45pm game at Memorial Park, while the Hautapu Sports Development side will meet Otorohanga in the 1pm game.

Hautapu Sports’ Colts resume after a break to host Hinuera at 1pm, while Hautapu’s Women’s Championship team travel to Hamilton’s Flagstaff Park to play Suburbs.

The Colts, who are one point clear at the top of the table, play fifth-placed Hinuera.

With only three games left in the round robin, the remaining fixtures are crucial to securing a top four spot or, even better, home play-offs.

Hautapu’s women’s team take on Suburbs in Hamilton in their final round robin game.

Going into the game in fourth position, they will try to gain points to make it to next week’s semi-finals.
