It is usually a round ball on the artificial turf at Logan Park in Dunedin but the oval ball got a hit-out on the  surface yesterday.

An Otago Rippa rugby competition took place involving intermediate and primary schools. Arrowtown won the year 3 and 4 grade, beating Shotover Primary 9-5, and in year 5 and 6, it beat Rosebank 5-1. Remarkables won  year 7 and 8, beating Arrowtown 7-6.

Photographer Gregor Richardson captured some of the action.
