Harbour takes Bandy Scoles Memorial match

Harbour                         66
Zingari-Richmond         24

Dynamic flanker Ben Whale played a key role in Harbour’s 10-try 66-24 win against Zingari-Richmond in the annual Bandy Scoles Memorial match at Montecillo.

Whale won his share of lineout ball, tackled ferociously and made powerful runs up the centre with the ball.

Centre Aleki Morris added a second-half try to keep up his record of scoring in all six games this winter.

All Black Waisake Naholo demonstrated his strength and speed by scoring a hat-trick of tries and fullback Logan Allen and first five-eighth Sam Porter looked classy with the ball in hand.

Allen and Porter each kicked four conversions in the tricky wind conditions.

Harbour ran the ball from all parts of the paddock and scored four first-half tries to lead 26-7 at the break.

It put its foot on the accelerator and added six more tries and 40 points in the entertaining second spell.

Zingari was beaten but not disgraced and the backline attacked from wide out and looked dangerous with some crisp passing.

Centre Dwayne Corcoran was difficult to stop inside the 22m and scored a hat-trick of tries.

Chris McNoe was solid at fullback and his long pass to winger Allister Butterfield led to Zingari’s first try.

Thomas Johnson was accurate at first five-eighth and No8 Chris Bell was the workhorse in the pack.
