After a 24-19 loss to Westlake Boys recently, Rosmini bounced back with a solid performace against TGS.

Rosmini’s fullback Keano Kini scored two tries. Flanker Ben Clarke was the team’s standout player on defence and also scored a try. Co-captain Rory Taylor and Carlos Phillips also scored. 

 Rosmini’s 1st XV head coach Jacob Corbett said: “We are pretty happy this was a really good opportunity for the boys to show they have improved.” 

Try time… Ben Clarke dots down for Rosmini last Saturday 

“It was a very good game. A big part for us was our defence and being patient with our attack.

“The Takapuna Grammar team is a really young and exciting team, We weren’t sure what was going to happen on the field but we kept accurate with our defence in the first 20 minutes and then scored points quickly,” said Corbett. 

Rosmini plays Massey at Massey this Saturday, while Takapuna Grammar plays Westlake at TGS.
