Old Boys started and finished strongly to post a seventh consecutive win in North Otago premier club rugby today.

The defending Citizens Shield champions beat Athletic Marist 42-12 in the only game played this weekend.

Old Boys led 28-0 at halftime, and even though Athletic Marist fought back well in the second half, elusive halfback Inoke Naufahu scored two late tries to blow the score out.

The two other games were played on Thursday night. Excelsior got its first win of the season, beating Maheno 14-13, and Valley upset Kurow 34-30.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
