Harbour Premiers have had a great start to the season sitting second on the table and four wins from four.
The hawks were able to knock over Kaikorai in the first round 20-15 and toppled Taieri 27-17 the following week.
This lead to putting 50 points on both Zingari-Richmond and Ahlambra-Union
Coach Ryan Nicholas is extremely happy with the start but insists the Hawks best is yet to come. “We are miles ahead of where we were last year, which is a result of having about 8 weeks of pre season before the first game. We are still making far too many errors” he insists the Hawks best is yet to be seen.
Thats a scary statement considering they have looked pretty dominant over all opposition they have come up against to date.
Harbour come up against an inform University at Watson Park this week.
University looked to have started to click and were very much back to their best last week smashing Taieri in Mosgiel 38-10.
The bookworms were notably good in the scrum and held onto ball and built phases.
Harbour will have to be on their very best to keep up with the fitness of the students this week and will sure to be the biggest game for the hawks this season.
Notable match ups for Saturday:
Soloman Pole will no doubt come up against Otago prospect Sam Dickson and will have his work cut out for him as the work rate of both will cause big collisions.
Abraham Pole made his return against Ahlambra-Union, it will be a match up to watch closely for Otago selectors against Ricki Jackson and Kilapati Lea in the front row.
Logan Allen will come up against arch nemesis and Otago B player Mike Williams
Sala Halaleva has been in hot form in the first 4 games and will come up against New Zealand 7s player Taylor Haugh.
The Hawks kick off against University Saturday at Watson Park at 3pm
