On a beautiful day which was conducive to running rugby, the 1st XV put on a show for the small but boisterous crowd in attendance. Kapiti was against the ropes early as Wairarapa College struck spinning the ball out wide to Kallum Pike to run in the first 2 tries of the day.
Wairarapa College was ahead 14 - 0 after 5 minutes. Heine Warns then bust through to make the score 19 - 0. Kapiti hit back with a nice backline move to score under the sticks. Two more tries in the first half to Dhylan Taua and Kallum Pike saw us take a comfortable 31 - 5 lead going into oranges.
It was more of the same in the second half, the forwards laid the platform and the backs were the beneficiaries especially Kallum Pike who had a field day and shortly after half time ran in his 4th try. Subs were made by Tanner which did disrupt the flow of the game for a period of time.
Plenty of impact was provided off the bench particularly Lucciano Blundell who was damaging with the ball in hand and Willie Sargent who controlled the game well at 10. With 20 minutes to play, Lucciano Blundell crashed over and Heine grabbed his second. Late in the game, Kallum Pike scored his 5th try, this time using his power to run over the fullback. The goal-kicking display from both Davide Nava (4/6) and Willie (2/3) was impressive given most of the kicks were from the sideline.
A big win to Wairarapa College (57 - 7) which was a great result for. The brand of rugby Wairarapa College was playing was really good to watch. This win secures their place in the premiership competition for this year and the boys now receive a well deserved week off before the competition starts.
