Men’s Division

Spencer Brown would go over for a try, but Cole missed the conversion as the Police took a 8 – 0 to the half time break.

Teachers caught the Police napping off the kick off and stole the ball, good forward driving put George Peets over and Mikel Dill converted closing the gap 8 – 7.

Police woke up and after a good series of play worked a fine lineout and a simple crash ball to see center Andrew Kemp score a try and with Cole good on the conversion, the score saw Police open up an 8 point lead again.

Indiscipline by the Teachers put them on the back foot and once again poor tackling allowed Ryan Murray to score, and Cole converted to extend the lead to 22 – 7.

Police earned their bonus point with a powerful run off the base of an attacking scrum by Vaughn Van Oudtshoorn, but Cole missed the conversion, so the score remained 27 – 7.

The Teachers earned a consultation try through Chiquon Smith, but Dill missed conversion to make the final score 27 – 12.

In the final match of the day, the Renegades defeated the Mariners 55 – 10.
