First XV Winners Against Tauranga Boys

The King’s College First XV struggled to get out of first gear against a committed Tauranga Boys' College side.

The first half saw some missed opportunities from both sides, and the half-time score of 10-8 to King's, with a try to Sam Reid and a conversion and penalty to Ciarahn Matoe, was a fair reflection of the game.

King’s jumped onto the ledger early in the second half through tries to Joe Johnston and Ben Morgan.

A late try to Trent Tipene and three penalties and a conversion to Ciarahn Matoe saw King’s winners 36-8.
