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

@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.

@tapebootsandbeer Fine weather and a moderate breeze greeted the Marist and Dunedin teams for their preseason fixture played at Kettle Park in Dunedin this afternoon. For the record, I’ve no idea who won however Marist did score four tries to one in the first half.
