This weekends game saw the new Minety players face off with ex-Minety players from years gone by. The game was played in three twenty minute periods. The first twenty-minute period kicked off with the 1st XV kicking to the old boys going up the hill. The old boys caught the ball and ran it hard at the 1st XV’s lines. The difference in size made an impact in these opening exchanges. The ruck area became important to both sides with the old boys contesting every ruck and every half chance at a turn over. The old boys pushed hard in the opening twenty to take three tries down the hill. The 1st XV took a bit of time to settle in attack, but Garin Garland managed to help the 1st XV stay in touching distance with two well taken tries.
