Marist defeated Invercargill in a fast and open game of rugby. Marist were over eager at times and their number of infringements in the first half ensured Invercargill stayed in the game. It was all about the last man standing and this is where Marist won the game by being the fitter team.
The Marist backs moved with pace and accuracy in the way they have been doing all season. By completing powering ahead in the last 20 minutes Marist convincingly won the game 28-6.
Invercargill held its own in the first time but with the constant pressure cracks started to appear and this is how Marist knocked up 20 points in the last 17 minutes of the game.
Marist's forwards won good clean ball from lineouts and rucks, for their backs, who used the ball to feed the try scoring machine.
Fine play by Marist forwards, L. Mason and R. Scott, the Westcoasters, ran strongly to penetrate the Invercargill and set up good scoring opportunites for their backs. Mason and Scott would have to be the fastest forwards in the competition and the way they fielded the ball and raced through a gap made it easy for their backs as they did most of the hard graft for them.
R. Bewley's inclusion in the representative side has given him the confidence and belief as he is a much better player and his speed along with his newly acquired fend made sure he had the better of his opposite, W.M. Smith. Bewley scored two fine tries from movements initiated by L. Ward and Scott.
K. Creedy the Marist half-back has not harmed his game by having an enforced lay-off and played a smart game behind the scrum and scored a glorious try with a nimble 25 yrd run.
Although Creedy's performance was not always on song, first five eight, A Daly, handled any unreliable ball so well that it was hardly noticed. Daly marshalled the back-line to perfection and his skill was shown by the way he side-stepped three men before he passed for a try to be scored.
D Reilly was also reliable at full-back with efficient fielding and kicking.
Invercargill's captain, T. W. Edie, tried too hard to p lay the game himself and this resulted in him running out of steam later in the game. L. Crosswell played well at centre without really have any chances. The Invercargill forwards led by A.J. Borland, matched Marist for most of the game with L. Agnew showing up in the loose and T. Whaanga, showed intelligence in the line-outs.
Due to the large number of infringements by Marist and in particular F. Ward and W. Duggan (Marist) and E. Sutton (Invercargill), the referee, Mr J. North handed out a lot of penalties.
Invercargill did not take advantage of these 'gimmes' and missed four shots of goal before Thwaites landed one at close range.
