Fun filled weekend full of league. Saturday we were up against Marist and came away with a win Richmond 20 Marist 12. Congratulations to our Player of the Day Nukutawhiti Gray and our Runner Up Zephan Pita Lafaele. Sunday we had our gala
day and played a total of 5 games against the following teams Papakura, Mangere East, Papatoetoe, Pakuranga and Manurewa. Well done to our future little stars and a special Thank You to our Parents for their support.
The pirates fielded a good, quick team that forced our boys to work hard on defence. With a few good tries out wide and the pick-up of some loose passes the pirates took the win by three tries Richmond 28 – Pt Chev 40. Good effort however by the doggies and really good to see some keen players out there rearing to go on the day.
Under 12s: Richmond 16 vs Marist 10.
A real error -riddled effort from Richmond saw Marist team take a 10 nil lead within five minutes. Poor handling and mis-drected kick saw Marist score long-range tries. The Rovers finally woke up and their pack of Denzel, JJ, Darius, Terekia, Rona & Zion ran with greater intent making huge amounts of yards. By half-time the scores were level through a typical Denzel bullocking run. The second try was a gem and a great reward for Jordan who backed up Simi's big break and received the inside pass to dot under the posts. The second half saw Richmond gain the ascendancy with Simi scoring from halfway after some quick passing by the backs. The game was called off seven minutes early due to a serious (not life-threatening-thankfully) to a Marist player and the game being halted for over 5 minutes.
Player of the Day: Rona
Awards: Zion Epiha, Darius, Jordan
Richmond under 13’s played Northcote and won 54-0. The focus this week was on the marker chasing out and putting heat on the 1st receiver. The Bulldogs did that very well and the Tigers struggled against a determined defensive line. On the back of that, we had a lot of possession and ran in 10 tries. One, a 98m intercept by Dylan Tavita and Hayes Okesene getting a hat-trick. In all, a very pleasing team performance. Half way through the season and everyone is putting in strong performances and contributing to the team effort.
Player of the Day: Dylan Tavita
Best Forward: Legacy Talagi-Tautuki & Hayes Okesene
Best Back: Immanuel Ualika, Carlos Henry & Sam Tofa-Timoteo
Coaches Award: Fa’alolo
Selemaia & Ezael Tautuki
Under 15s: Richmond 90 v Bay Roskill Vikings 0.
After losing by 70 points to Otahuhu last week, this was a 160 point turnaround- surely a Club record. Best Forward Malrick Lavea. Best back Elijah Ngamu, who was looking like a mini Jonah Lomu. Big Ups to Isaac Ah Kuoi-Atmore, Elijah and Conrad Collins who stayed on the field for the next game to help out the u18s, who only had 11 players. With no one from the u16s and u17s offering to play, these three boys took up the challenge and all stood their ground against boys 3 years older. A great show of Richmond spirit.
