Westlake Boys 1st XV vs Birkenhead College 1st XV
Up to this game and barring the first 5 minutes of the Rosmini game, Westlake’s 1st XV have been fortunate enough not to play in wet weather conditions. Saturday’s weather was very wet but this did not dampen proceedings on the field and the team settled into their work immediately with Harry Forbes barging over within 90 seconds after the start. Five minutes later Fine Inisi showed his class again with silky footwork to score his first of two equally impressive tries. By the half time whistle Westlake had built a 43 point lead.
The scoring continued in the second half with Lotu Inisi finishing off his hattrick of tries in the game. Leon Thambiran finished the scoring with a 50m try under the posts after bursting through the Birkenhead defence from a tap penalty on half way.
Scoreboard: Westlake 76 – Birkenhead 0 (Halftime: 43 – 0)
Tries: Harry Forbes; Fine Inisi (2); Tupou Afungia; Jack Fuller; Lotu Inisi (3); Spencer McDowall; Keepa Wiki; Tiennan Costley; Leon Thambarin. Conversion: Copper Green (4); Keepa Wiki (4)
