Last Sunday the annual match was played between Manawatu Wanganui and Wellington at Levin. The weather was fine, but a little cool with a cold wind coming off the hills that had a nice dusting of snow.
The overall match was close in the morning, but Wellington ran away with the matches in the afternoon to win 41.5 to 22.5 overall. However on a bright note the Manawatu Wanganui women won their section 8.5 to 7.5 overall.
The mens team in particular was very under strength after 7 players that were originally selected had to withdraw for variance reasons.
Congratulations to Wellington, and a huge thank you to all the players that competed.
