A depleted Waimate side were too strong for an Old Boys outfit that ran out of gas winning 48-17  to hold onto third spot in the Hamersley Cupbehind Celtic and Temuka.

For Waimate prop Tokomata Fakatava had a huge game and proved an strong ball carrier.

Stand-in halfback Aaron Clark scored a hat trick of tries while outside of him Dan Patterson had a tidy game at first five.

Captain Miles Medlicott also played very well at centre.

For Old Boys open side Danny Wilson battled away while halfback Jarrid Cooper also impressed as he tried to fire up the Blues.

Senior B also got back on the right side of the ledger conceding just one try in their 49 – 5 rout over Old Boys.

It was a tough day however for the other grades with the U18s, U16s and U14 1/2 teams all losing their matches.
