St Andrew’s v. St Paul’s Rawson Rugby Final
The Rawson final between two undefeated teams started hard and fast, with Paul’s capitalising early, scoring the first try. What followed was a very tense first half, with the Drew’s team being put under a lot of pressure, however a strong period of play saw Toby Cooke cross in the corner to draw us level. This was short-lived, with Paul’s scoring again to finish the half at 10-5 to Paul’s.
The second half was similar to the first with Paul’s executing a very smart game plan. This allowed them to maintain possession and properly test the Drew’s defence. The end score was 23-5 with the Paul’s playing a great game. Full credit to the St Andrew’s team who never once gave up an inch throughout the match and were gracious in defeat.
Thank you to all the match officials who adjudicated the game and to all the supporters who came and watched as well as the St Andrew’s alumni.
