Next Saturday’s Wanganui premier rugby semi-finalists were found today, with matches at Waverley and Spriggens Park next Saturday.
David Ogilvie reports:
Border plays Pirates at Waverley and Marist play at home to Ruapehu in Wanganui rugby’semi-finals after a final round hampered very badly by the storm.
The matches between Pirates and Utiku at Taihape and Ruapehu and Ngamatapouri at Ohakune were not played because of the playing fields being ravaged by now. All four clubs were given two points.
The senior semi between Huntervile and Counties, scheduled for Hunterville, was shifted to Bulls and saw a win to Hunterville..
The major interest then was in the Border-Marist clash at Waverley. Marist needed to score five points an keep Border pointless - something it failed to do.
In fact a try to rep prop Hamish Mellow and five penalties to Nick Harding saw Border home 20 - 12, even though Marist scored a couple of tries.
Border led 14 - 12 at halftime and the home side battled home.
So the draw for next Saturday sees Border and Pirates play at Waverley, and Marist meet Ruapehu at Spriggens Park.
Border 20 (Hamish Mellow try; Niock Harding 5pen) bt Marist 12 (Steelie Koro,m Cameron Crowley tries; Mitchell Millar con)

Semis draw: Hunterville v Celtic, Spriggens Park; Marton v Taihape, Marton.
