Alhambra-Union are the only unbeaten team after five rounds and lead the Dunedin premier rugby competition with 21 points.
The Marty Gray coached team drew with Dunedin 9-all at Kettle Park today and were unlucky not to win the game.
Three penalty goals by first five-eighth Greg Dyer gave Dunedin a 9-0 lead at the break.
But Alhambra-Union came back strongly in the second spell to even the scores with Peter Breen kicking two penalty goals and a dropped goal.
Alhambra-Union is followed on the points table by Taieri on 20, Kaikorai (19), Dunedin and Southern (18), University A (11), Harbour (10), Zingari-Richmond (7), Pirates (5) and Green Island (0).
