After the half time break Te Atatu had their own ideas and scored two quick converted tries and took the lead to 24-16. With 20 minutes to play the oggies were next to score taking the score to 24-22 to Te Atatu still. With 15 minutes to play Te Atatu scored again with a conversion to take the lead further to 30-22. The Doggies attacked the line several times showing much determination but also desperation as careless passes were thrown around on the first tackle. We were not patient enough during the later stages of the game and loss the ball in early sets. It wasn’t until the 79th minute that we scored which was converted to take the score 30-28 to Te Atatu Roosters.
