Dunedin Premier Rugby wrap

Harbour has made a winning start to its season with a 26-22 win against Southern at Watson Park today.

Harbour dominated the scrums but the Magpies had a superior kicking game which helped keep it in the right areas.

Had it not been for a couple of defensive blunders, the visitors may have been able to push for an upset win.

But Harbour winger Mone Palu bagged two tries. One of them was an intercept from 70m out.

In the other games, Taieri edged University 27-24 at Logan Park. That match was a replay of last year’s final.

Green Island achieved a 24-15 victory against Alhambra-Union at Miller Park, and Kaikorai had a comfortable 36-16 win against Dunedin at Kettle Park.
