Two unbeaten sides remain

Two teams remain unbeaten in Pool C of the Country Combined division one rugby competition. Saracens win over Kaiapoi at Southbrook Park kept them at the top of the pool. After leading 10-7 at the halftime break, and Kaiapoi going down to 14 just before halftime, Saracens went on to win 30-7.

Glenmark Cheviot are the other unbeaten side. This weekend saw the club celebrating their belated Centenary, after Covid-19 delayed last year's plans. They were also celebrating Brook Retallick’s 150th match. The crowds gathered and enjoyed seeing the home side defeat Ashley 32-22 in a good game of rugby.

In the closest match of the weekend, Woodend and Oxford had a 21-21 draw, and Ohoka came from behind to defeat Hurunui 25-17.

Points: Glenmark Cheviot 12, Saracens 12, Kaiapoi 10, Ashley 7, Hurunui 5, Ohoka 5, Woodend 3, Oxford 2.

Springston and Southern both remain unbeaten in pool A and B respectively.
