Ranfurly fillip soothes Country's pain
Country suffer biggest rugby drubbing in yonks by Development XV
What a moment.
That was Otago's
Shield rugby win over
Waikato last Friday, a result that
brought home the log of wood for
the first time in 56 years. And it
was certainly the talk aroudn the
local sporting traps last weekend.
Even going to Milton on Saturday
for the representative rugby game
between Otago Country and the
Otago Development XV, all the
buzz was the Ranfurly Shield
Congratulations to coaches Tony
Brown and Phil Young, and
captain Paul Grant, who all learnt
their early rugby in South Otago,
not forgetting two others in the
team in Lee Allan and Tony
Ensor. The highlight in South
Otago was the above mentioned
representative rugby clash where
the Otago Development XV was
too strong overall for country,
winning by 78-12 after leading
43-nil at halftime. The
development team were too fast
and pacey in the backs, and the
forwards excelled as the match
went on. They scored 11 tries,
with 10 conversions,and one
The backs to stand out were
Steven Fenemore who was
outstanding, his goal kicking
superb landing seven from eight.
Ben Patson, who came on as a
replacement, kicked five from five
as well. Another to show out was
halfback, Brad Weber. His play
was a high calibre, his passing
excellent, and his eye to spot the
gap was brilliant.
In the forwards, the loose trio
were supreme, as they had the
ball to play with as combine well
Otago Country were disappoint-
ing, and this would be the biggest
score that Country have lost by in
the last 26 years that I have been
reporting on Country rugby. The
forwards were shut out of the
game, while the backs, just did not
get enough ball to use.
The only highlight for Country,
was the try to highly promising
winger, Gavin Stark. He received
the ball from 60 metres out, and
out-sprinted all of the
development team to score under
the bar. And his effort came ten
minutes from fulltime, as he saw
hardly any ball at all during the
