That home record

Green Island Women v Waitaki Wahine (10.04.21)

Well, the Highlanders went down last night under the roof at Forsyth Barr Stadium in extra-time thanks to a Damian McKenzie penalty. The loss now means the Highlanders home record is looking fairly average with the side now having lost 5 matches in a row. Actually, the Highlanders last victory at home was a 28 – 27 win over the Chiefs on Saturday 13th June 2020. Since then, they finished the season at home last year with losses to the Crusaders and the Blues while this year they have gone down to the Crusaders, the Hurricanes and now the Chiefs.

On a brighter note the Premier Women’s grade kicked off yesterday here in Dunedin with the Waitaki Wahine beating Green Island 22 to 0 while Big River Country from Balclutha got a first up win over the Pirates Wahine 36 to 33. So, before you head out to enjoy the sunshine here’s a few more images for you to enjoy.

The Saturday Wrap

To start the season I headed up to Opoho to see the start of the Premier Women’s competition. The new team in this year’s competition Big River Country from Balclutha. This now means that the Premier Women’s grade is covering from North Otago to South Otago which is great to see.

Around the grounds in other premier matches this afternoon, Harbour defeated Southern 26 to 22 at Watson Park while over at Miller Park Green Island were victorious over Alhambra Union with a 24 to 15 win. In a replay of last year’s final Taieri got up over University 27 to 24 while at Kettle Park Kaikorai defeated Dunedin 36 to 16

Alhambra Union v Clutha (20.03.21)The AU Bench

@tapebootsandbeer – 20.03.21
Preseason rugby is one of the only times of the year when I don’t care what the score is in the game I’m shooting. I’m much more interested in faces. It’s always interesting to see if any new players pop-up at a club or what the numbers are like at training. The weather is always fairly settled as well.

Today I visited three games, two of them involved teams from out of town which is always nice for some variety. My day started at Bishopscourt with a Colts match before checking in with the Upper Clutha Rams at Montecillo and finishing the afternoon at the North Ground with the Steamers from Balclutha.
