U18 Retain SCRFU Trophy

Waimate (or the rain-soaked wallabies according to the Timaru Herald) successfully defended their Under 18 South Canterbury Rugby Title with a 14 – 0 win over the TBHS 2nd XV at Alpine Energy Stadium in the ‘main game’ at the weekend.

Waimate first-five Bryce Shearer landed three penalties and wing Brandan Bennett scored a try in the second half.

Lock Hamish Mackay and second-five Ben Johnson impressed in the tough, rain swept conditions, but the whole team featured throughout the season and had both coaches Barry Caird and John Bryce smiling happily at the end of another successful year.
