Tokomata Fakata’ava on the charge

Waimate got off to a flying start against Temuka, scoring three tries in the first 15 minutes and went on to score four tries in their 28-21 win over Temuka at the Temuka Domain.

Temuka came back strongly in the second half, with tries to No 8 Joeli Kotabalava and prop Aifala Taueliga, while full-back Blair Struthers kicked three penalties and a conversion.

However, Paseka’s sending off meant they were reduced to 14 men for the last 25 minutes. Temuka open-side flanker Semisi Paseka could possibly face further disciplinary action, after he was sent off for allegedly punching a player in his side’s loss to Waimate.

For Waimate, fullback George Williams scored a try and kicked two penalties and a conversion, while prop Tokomata Fakatava’s work rate was superb.
