Central Pirates just about made the record books in 1986 with a massive 86-9 win over Drummond in 1986. This was a sad day for country rugby as it was obvious from this score that it was a very one sided affair. Central Pirates scored 17 tries in the rampage and left them at the top of the nine team table.
Central Pirates dominated every bit of set play and with the likes of Bruce Lewis and Ian Harding controlling the mauls and rucks as well it was always going to be an uphill battle for Drummond.
Central Pirates were able to play a pacey open game due to practically no defence and they made the use of their wingers, Mark McKerney and David Moynihan.
Up by 42 points at half time it really was credit to CP as they did not let the foot off the throat and continued strangling the Drummond team.
Gordon McCallum took over the kicking role and managed 100% with six out of six conversions.
Drummond managed to score the last points of the game when winger Lindsay Forbes scored his teams only try. Full back John Lindsay with Richard Hishon and Russell Horner all tried to stop the flow but to no avail.
CENTRAL PIRATES: Mark McKerney (6), David Moynihan (3), Alistair Calvert (2), Bruce Lewis (2), Wayne McCallum (1), Kevin McCallum (2) (2 con), Gordon McCallum (6 con).
DRUMMOND: Lindsay Forbes (1) Paul Kincaid (1 con 1PG)
Otautau were ahead of Wrights Bush 15-4 at half time but Bush came out a different team and scored four unanswered tries.
For Otautau Richard Bekhuis and Neil Laurie dominated the line outs and delivered clean ball to Barry McAlister whose sharp passes gave Gerry Brown and winger Peter Morris ample of room.
It was like someone turned the switch on for Wrights Bush and they eradicated errors and started to dominate the forward play.
Alistair Day, Gordon Duthie, Keith McKenzie and first five eight Gerard Joyce got good service from half back, Boo Puki. At centre Herbie Brown ran on to the ball with good timing, found the gaps and accelerated through.
WRIGHTS BUSH: Herbie Brown (2) Gavin McPherson, Jim Sinclair, Boo Puki, Keith McKenzie, Alistair Day (1) Gerrard Joyce (6 con).
OTAUTAU: Peter Morris (3) Gerry Brown (1) Geoff Carlton (1DG) Don Gilkison (1 Con)
Winton beat Waiau Star 10-0 where Graeme Tait and Irwin Davidson played well in the loose and Richard Ward deserved a try after constantly testing the Waiau Star defence.
Brendan Boyle and Stephen Kean scrummed well and full back Trevor Dyer grew into the game.
Hooker, Jimmy Harris and lock Robin Peters played well for Waiau Star.
WINTON: Richard Ward (1) Chris Kooman (2 PG)
Limehills looked like they were going to upset Riverton when they were ahead 8-6 at halftime
but Riverton got a talking to at halftime and came out a better team with Noel Guttrey, Barry Frew and Gary Sinclair working well as a unit and were the catalyst in Riverton's tries.
RIVERTON: Wade Diamond (1) Simon Fraser (1) Paul Aukistino (1) (3 con)
LIMEHILLS: Bill Hamilton (1) Anthony Dalzell (1)
