30th May, 2016
With the wind howling up to 30 kph, conditions weren’t in favour of flowing Rugby, but the way our boys started, it might have been ideal weather. Isaiah Wildermoth burrowed his way over for the opening try from a ruck near the line and Hamish Stewart landed a sideline conversion. It was 7-0 before most of the crowd had settled into their seats.
With our forwards providing ideal front-foot ball, the backs swung into action and Harry Hill cruised over in the corner for try number two. Again Hamish converted. 14-0.
Jamison Quirk made a determined run and off-loaded perfectly to newly-promoted Struan Roberton, who proved the selectors right with a try in the corner. 19-0.
After only 20 minutes the bonus point came up when halfback Zac Newton darted 20m from the base of a ruck and swerved around the fullback to score the 4th try.
Hayden Sargeant is a beautifully-balanced runner. He showed his flair and pace when he cut through almost the entire Norths team in a bewildering 35m run. Tom McKee scored from the ensuing ruck and it was 29-0 at halftime.
Unfortunately the referee put a brake on the scoring in the second half when he continually penalized us at the breakdown. And Norths started a bit of niggle to try to disrupt our game. It was frustrating for coach Brad Harris and the team, who showed admirable restraint.
Even so, Tom McKee scored his second try with one of the best breaks in the match and then Exe Olivieri, off the bench, scored from a typically powerful run. The final score 43-0 to Bond, who are still on top of the table.
