BIG IMPROVEMENT FROM REGGIES

20th June, 2017

Bond Reserves have no chance of making the finals but, if you look closely at their season, they could have been in the top 4.  6 times they’ve got a bonus point for losing by less than 7 points.  If they had won those close ones, who knows what could have happened ?   As it was, they scored 6 tries in beating Norths 33-12, earning another bonus point, this time for a win.  The only blight on the match was a shocking injury to winger Harrison Jurgs, who was carried off after a stiff-arm tackle by Norths winger.   The good news was that he was released from hospital on Saturday evening –  Bond were awarded a penalty try and the offending winger was red-carded.  

After an arm-wrestle in the first half it was 12-all but Bond dominated after the send-off and ran away with the game.  Rian Olivier led from the front from flyhalf, scoring 2 tries.  For the first he carried four defenders over the line and the second was even more spectacular.  He fielded a kick inside his own half and ran 50m, scoring under the posts after a brilliant weaving run.  Nixon Taramai was rewarded for a mighty defensive effort with another impressive try, racing 30m through a wall of defenders.  Nathan Corbett and Jake Field were the other tryscorers but the highlight on the game came right on fulltime.   Veteran lock Ruben Fuimaono kicked a conversion – perhaps the first of his illustrious career!
