2nd XV v St John's College 1st XV

2nd XV v St John's College 1st XV - Saturday 4 July

The 2nd XV entertained St John's College 1st XV on Saturday. From the kick off, PNBHS gifted possession and the initiative to St John's who were quick to capitalise with a penalty. A poor lineout and then some weak tackling followed this and with the game barely started, PNBHS found themselves 10-0 down.

A spirited response followed and some good attack play saw Devon Chapman crash over and reduce the deficit. With a spring in their step, PNBHS now began to take the game to the St John's team. Pressure in the midfield created a turnover and Kodie Albert-Papuni broke a tackle and scampered 30m to score. Unfortunately, a charge down resulted in a try for St John's and this shifted momentum again as St John's scored a further try to lead 22-14. A good PNBHS response saw them score a well-worked 8-9 move finished well by Kees Jahnke and the halftime score was 22 – 19. 

The second half started poorly, with an intercept gifting another 7 points to St John's who extended the lead to 29-19. St John's added to their lead when a chip and chase took a cruel bounce and they were ahead 34-19. A good response from PNBHS again saw Kalis Mason crash through a hole before the ball was recycled quickly and shifted to the edge for Anitoni Metui to touch down to reduce the deficit to 34-24. A well-worked try at the end from St John's saw them exploit an overlap on the short side and score with the final play. Final score 39-24. 

Some very good play was overshadowed at times by lapses in concentration and errors and this is another good learning heading into the next fixture vs Wellington College. If the 2nd XV can maintain their concentration for the full 70 minutes, they have the potential to be a very good team.

1st XI Hockey v Marton Hockey Club

1st XI Hockey v Marton Hockey Club - Saturday 4 July

The 1st XI Hockey team played Marton Hockey Club in the second round of the Manawatu Premier Reserve Competition on Saturday.

It was evident from the first whistle that this was going to be a close match. The 1st XI played some outstanding passing hockey in the first quarter; however, they were unable to capitalise on the scoreboard.

Marton went one-nil up from a goal scored from a defensive mishap, but PNBHS scored soon after through Hael Pritchard. Marton scored again toward the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter played out in much the same way, with Hael Pritchard scoring his second and Marton scoring another, making it 3 - 2 to Marton at the halftime break.

The 1st XI gained some ascendancy in the third quarter. Blake Rhodes-Robinson found the net to even the scoreline to 3 all.

A fourth-quarter Zac Buinimasi successful penalty corner strike gave PNBHS the winning goal, giving them a 4 - 3 victory.

Jay Ranchhod was resolute on defence for PNBHS with an outstanding performance.

The next match is on Saturday, 11th July, at 12.00 pm against Massey Premier Reserve.

Rector’s XV vs Te Aute Centenary Match
par Ella Mitchell, Friday 3 July 2020, 15:00
 

Rector’s XV vs Te Aute Centenary Match

Tomorrow will see a Rector’s XV play Te Aute College from Central Hawke’s Bay, and the match is being played to mark 100 years since our two schools first met on the rugby field. And, as it was in 1920, the match is taking place the day after term two finishes.

That first match was the North Island semi-final of the first national secondary schools knockout championship, held to determine who would be the original holder of the Moascar Cup – a trophy won by the New Zealand Mounted Rifle Brigade in a services tournament in Egypt while waiting to be sent home at the end of World War I.

The 1920 1st XV, which included the school’s soon to be first All Black Arthur Law, had already defeated Napier, St.Patrick’s College of Wellington and Wanganui Technical College before taking on Te Aute for the first time. The 1920 Palmerstonian records “This match was without doubt our greatest game of the whole season…Te Aute were indeed a great team, and the tremendous struggle they put up will never be forgotten by those who took part against them. It may be worthy to note that this was the only team which we played for the Moascar Cup that crossed our line.”

The match was played in Napier, and when, on the return journey, the train stopped in “their township…” the Te Aute team “lined up alongside the train and gave us three cheers and then their haka, after which we responded with three hearty cheers. They then climbed on to the train , shook hands with us, and wished us luck in our future games.”

So began our long history with Te Aute College; a few years after this first match the fixture became an annual one, and over throughout the 1930s and 40s the Moascar Cup moved almost exclusively between our two schools. Currently it resides not far up the road from Te Aute, at our Super Eight compatriots at Hastings Boys’.

Throughout our 100 years many memorable games hav been played; the infamous match of 1947 stands out – the school’s Centennial Book writes, “One of the most extraordinary 1st XV matches ever played. All football (rugby in those days, boys, was referred to as football) in New Zealand was cancelled because of very bad storms, but Te Aute had not heard or were not told, and duly arrived in Palmerston North for their two-night stay. The Manawatu Rugby Union were keen to recoup the £57 17s 6d the Royal Hotel would cost them, and insisted the game go on”. The coach, Mr Skoglund contacted the team to tell them the game was on; 5000 spectators were at the Showgrounds and in the atrocious conditions after five minutes no-one could tell who was who. The nil-all draw meant Te Aute retained the Moascar Cup.

All told, our 1st XVs have met 84 times over those 100 years, and even though we have not played at 1st XV level since 2008 we have maintained contact on the sporting field with Te Aute and it is a privilege to host them tomorrow for our Centenary fixture. A 12pm kick-off on the no.1 field here at school.
