MBAS is on a roll with some fantastic rugby again this weekend.
1st XV played another nail biter of a game against Paeroa who have just returned to the Thames Valley competition after playing in the Chiefs Bowl for the first round and we knew it would be a hard one to win. It ended with a draw of 12 all and leaves us undefeated in the competition so far. Tries by Callum Walker and Christian Fletcher, conversion by Cameron Richards
U17s had a bye
4th Grade played Thames and had a magnificent win of 83-0. Tries by Bradley Ray x3, Anaru Aupouri-Te Huia x5, Kybah Aupouri-Te Huia, Ethan Giles x2, Billy Clarke, Jonathan Handy, Noah Bowen.

Fantastic rugby this weekend!
1st XV win over Thames 25-17 gave us the Graham Watton trophy for winning the first round and also we now hold the Thames challenge shield. It was a great game for the spectators, very evenly matched and some really good rugby.
A great start for the 1st XV with a win over Te Aroha 45-10. Tries by James Arthur, Cameron Richards, Liam Parry, Keegan Gunner, Rewi Robertson, Lucas Schurs and Austin Brear. Five conversions by Cameron Richards.
Next week 1st XV are away in Waihi and the 4th grade and U17s will begin their campaign.
