Old Boys eventually beat Wyndham 15-10 and it was not until late in the second half that Old Boys fired up. Possession from rucks and mauls were evenly matched but it was the lineouts that won the day for Old Boys.
Wyndham's downfall was their tackling with second five eight, Peter Howley scoring in the last few minutes to clinch the win.
Flankers, Dave Robertson and Geoff Brambles played well for Old Boys and Selwyn Winter, first five eight for Wyndham had a good game along with fullback John Hellier and has scored 100 points for the season
OLD BOYS: Peter Howley (1) Dave Robertson (1) Graeme Phillips (1Pg) (2Con)
WYNDHAM: Selwyn Winter (1) John Hellier (2PG)
Collegiate beat Pioneer 16-7 with the winners showing good ball skills in particulary Mana Davis who scored a good try. He scooped up a fumbled ball by Pioneer's Sean Lynch. Pioneer were strong in the lineouts with M McMillan at the back and Gus Burns at No. 4.
Burns took some excellent two handed takes and the good ball was fed to half back Peter Domigan, however the backs could not support their halfback and they were often forced out wide by the Collegiate defence and ran out of room.
COLLEGIATE: Mana Davis (2) M. Barry (1) J. Rangi (2Con)
PIONEER: Sean Lynch (1) (1PG)
