Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
Old Boys beat Waikaka 16-0 but the score did not reflect the game as it was not as convincing as read. The country team, Waikaka never stopped trying and it was this determined nature that stopped Old Boys scoring two further tries. Brian Dickison was outstanding for Waikaka but when he found a gap he often lacked support.
The two light packs were evenly matched and the half time score of 7-0 could have been anyones. Old Boy's enjoyed the clean takes in the lineout from A. Duncan but the scrums were very even.
Old Boy's loosies, Martin Black and David Black and John Ryan set the ball up well but often it did not get out to the backline.
The Waikaka were a strong unit in the rucks, mauls and scrums.
Although the Old Boy's backs looked slick they could not get over the advantage line. Wayne Stewart and Graham Phillips scored tries for Old Boys, with Phillips converting his try and John Polson kicking a penalty goal and conversion.
