Limehills and Central Pirates played a gruelling game at the latter's home ground. It was a day where the forwards played everything as defence lines on both sides were tight making it hard for the backs to penetrate and get any sort of game going. It was a close game at 14-12 to Central Pirates.
Lock for Central Pirates, Terry Cocker, repeated his recent great form, especially in the set play, and rucks and mauls. He was supported well by Mervyn Scott and Wally Nelson. The best of the backs for Central Pirates was Kevin Hamilton, at half back who was creative and energetic in moving the ball from the backs to the forwards when the backs failed to execute moves.
Limehills had a poor first half and even without the services of Murray Mitchell and Dave Saunders, they still had a team which should have been a bit more competitive.
The second half came and Peter O'Callaghan came on for Limehills and livened things up, especially in the loose. Greg Boyle's tackling was relentless and it was this that stopped Central Pirates playing their rugby through the backs. Ross Mangles also played well and was a menace to Central Pirates and not only tackled well, but his kicking was spot on. Centre, John Simmers scored a great individual try when he ran 70 metres, unchecked to dot down.
Central Pirates: J. Phair (2) Bevan Brown (1) T. Fairburn (1Con)
Limehills: J. Simmers (1) R. Mangles (1Con) (2Pg)
