harbour rugby club – “Kaikorai moves into top four”

Harbour 29
Green Island 22

Harbour made a positive start at Watson Park and opened the scoring with a try down the left wing.

Nick Corban provided the finish.

The ball had been put through plenty of hands before Corban got clear on the outside and he had an easy stroll in to the line.

Green Island replied with a penalty but Harbour swung back on to attack and scored two quick tries to lead 17-3.

The visiting side cut the gap before the break with hooker Ricky Hollamby crashing over.

Alex Barnsley knocked over the conversion.

The match lost some structure in the second spell with both sides bringing on some reserves.

It got messy but Harbour kept it together a little better and scored two more tries to lead 29-10.

But Green Island is not the pushover it once was, even with Highlanders prop Ross Geldenhuys standing on the sideline watching rather than playing.

The big guy scored three tries last week and looked to have itchy feet.

He would have been happy with the way his side finished, though.

Green Island nabbed two tries to grab a bonus point, the second on the stroke of fulltime.

Lock Ben Whale and openside flanker James Tomkinson were the best on display for Harbour, while Hollamby produced another quality performance for Green Island.
