Riverton earnt the right to play in the DB Rugby Club championship and met Invercargill in one of the finals in 1976. Invercargill with a forward powerhouse of flanker, Trevor Keelty, No 6 Colin Millar, and the rest of the pack; J. Steentjes, G. Smith, B. Lindsay, W. Templer and Ian Greig won too much ball, starving Riverton from getting opportunities to score.
The acme of the game was when Roger Ramsay scored in the corner for Invercargill. McLellan scored two tries for Invercargill and P. Hildyard converted two of the tries and G. Smith kicked a penalty goal.
For Riverton A. Frew had a great game and scored all their points. He was safe with ball in hand and tried to get his team going but they had now answer.
