Jim Rae comes on as replacement for Dickison and scored for Waikaka rugby to beat Pioneer in 1982......
Waikaka gave their home crowd some interesting rugby to watch by throwing the ball around and making the most of any opportunity that came their way.
Although not the dominant team they took their chances and tries to Brian Dickison and Billy McKenzie with the former converting both gave the home team a handy lead at half time 12-0.
Pioneer would have won the attacking battle but could only manage one try by Mark McCarthy when when he appeared from no-where to receive an off load and dive over for a try handy to the posts.
Dickison received a knock to the knee and was replaced by Jim Rae who did not weaken the team at all and in fact broke through two tackles and sprinted 40 metres for a great solo try.
Waikaka: Billy McKenzie, Jim Rae, Brian Dickison (1) (2 Con)
Pioneer: Mark McCarthy (1) (1Con)
Ricky Gutsell tries hard to get Wyndham up to first division in 1982 against Old Boys but falls short......
Wyndham had something to play for in attaining first division status in 1982 and beat Old Boys 13-6 to gain this.
Wyndham really needed a big win to get the desired result and started off as it meant to go on. Lock Dave Robinson was winning good lineout ball with Jerry Taiarua tidying up. First five eight Selwyn Winter kept probing the Old Boys defence and it was largely due to his skills, plus Wynham's ability to turn defence into attack that netted Wyndham an excellent try.
From a maul on the Wyndham 22, the flanker Bruce Robertson broke away and slipped the ball to Winter who broke through the defence.
The Old Boys cover was left grasping as the ball went to Taiarua, back to Winter on to Ricky Gutsell on the wing, back to Winter again, and finally Gutsell sprinted the last 20 metres to score wide out.
The Old Boys coach, Earl Dale must have spoken some stern words as Old Boys came out fighting.
The Old Boy's first five eight, Steve Black, used good judgement and timed his passes well.
Black managed to get closer to Wyndham with two penalty goals.
Old Boys lost its assured place in the Galbraith Shield section, while Wyndham is destined to contest the Wallis Shield.
