Edendale had a big win over Pioneer to give it a place in the Wallis Shield final
and also a chance to win the Ensign Cup. Edendale won the game in 1990, 30 to 9. It was all about the Edendale forwards dominating the game, so much so that the referee, Mike Pewhairanga ruled the scrums too dangerous and opted for free kicks instead. In say this though Pioneer had only 1 regular front rower, which did not help matters.
Bain McCall was in devastating form and was probably disappointed that the scrums were abandoned as scrummaging is his forte.
It was a different story though in the lineout where Pioneer's Eugene O'Neill had a great tussle with Alistair Duncan.
Pioneer's Gary Fordyce (first five eight), had a good game and as did Edendale's Phillip Hewitson.
Edendale: Ricky Gutsell, David Cowan, Mike Cunningham, Wayne Gibson (1), (2Con) (1PG), Gavin Yates (1DG).
Pioneer: Gary Fordyce (1), Sean Feller (1Con) (1PG).
