Southern celebrate winning the V.G.Cavanagh Memorial Trophy

Welcome to another season of club footy in the south. This is my 14 season photographing club rugby in Otago. The last few years have been a bit unusual so hopefully we get an uninterrupted year from this point onwards so those playing the game can get as much rugby as possible. So, without hesitation … on to the scores, results and images. 

Around the grounds this afternoon in Dunedin as the club competition started for the shortened 2022 season with Southern, Green Island, Taieri and Dunedin all having first up wins. At Bathgate Park, Southern won the Vic Cavanagh Memorial with a 36 to 35 win over University with a converted try in the last minute. Green Island were victorious at Miller Park with a 23 to 22 win over Harbour while Taieri defeated Kaikorai at Peter Johnstone Park and at Montecillo Dunedin was to strong for Zingari Richmond 41 to 14.
