Otago Boys' High School was a convincing winner in its annual interschool against King's High School yesterday.

The Otago Boys' High School First XV posted a dominant 44-0 victory over King's High School, winning with ease at Littlebourne in what was expected to be a close match.

Otago Boys' scored three tries inside the opening 15 minutes and was too strong and fast for a King's side lost for answers. The score was 17-0 at halftime.

The home team scored some nice tries in the second half, a couple of long-range efforts and was too big and strong for King's.

Best for the winning side were No8 Taylor Dale, halfback Motoli Tanaka and fullback Max Brown.

King's No8 Isaak Parata ran the ball up hard and was not far from the ball but King's was well off the pace.

There were all sorts of different sports played in the exchange, all across Dunedin.

There were the traditional sports of rugby and football but surfing also made an appearance.

Overall, Otago Boys' High School won the interschool 12-5.
