Westlake Boys Premier Rugby League vs Mount Albert Grammar School

The Westlake Boys Premier Rugby League Team continued their unbeaten run in the CRL (College Rugby League) competition with a hard fought 10-8 victory over Mount Albert Grammar School away at Fowlds Park. In atrocious weather conditions, ball security and discipline were the key aspects of the day.

Westlake started well with a try to centre Caleb Macdonald and a penalty added by Zae Wallace saw the team take a 6-0 lead. MAGS hit back hard through a Westlake error and levelled the scores at 6 all. They then kicked a penalty right before halftime to take the lead to 8-6 at halftime.

The second half was a brutal and at times dour affair with Westlake scoring through Fine Inisi in the first two minutes to take an important 10-8 lead. The team then held on through strong defence and ill-discipline from MAGS severely cost them at important stages.

The win means a top of Pool C finish for Westlake in the round robin with the CRL top six competition kicking off in a fortnight. Standout performers for the team were Fine Inisi, Connagh Takairangi and Ariki Hood-Kaitapu.
