The Timaru Boys High School 1st XV appreciated the fast track at Pleasant Point and had the upper hand throughout their clash with St Bedes. TBHS had dominance in the pack and the backs attacked with flair. The scoring slowed down in the second half as St Bedes came back, but the damage had already been done.
The usual level of pre-match tension was on show as the Timaru Boys High School 1st XV & the St Bedes 1st XV, from Christchurch, performed hakas prior to the clash at Pleasant Point, today.
