Bartlett makes New Zealand XI

CRICKET

Southey Sayer Wairarapa Korus, captain and allrounder Ocean Bartlett, has been named in a New Zealand XI squad to play two warm-up games against the visiting Pakistani women’s team this week.

The teams will play a one-day 50-0ver match tomorrow and a T20 match on Thursday, with both games at Bert Sutcliffe Oval at Lincoln.

RUGBY SEVENS

Wairarapa-Bush narrowly missed a place in the women’s final of the Central Zone Rugby Sevens at Massey University on Saturday. The green and reds qualified for the second vs three semifinal after a 29–5 loss to Hawke’s Bay, a 22–17 win over Whanganui, and a 39–0 loss to eventual champions Manawatū.

That set up a semifinal with Hawke’s Bay, which Wai-Bush led until the final 24 seconds when the injury-hit side conceded a match-winning try.

Wai-Bush finished third in the men’s competition, which was reduced to three teams after the late withdrawal of Whanganui on Friday night. A first-up 24–7 loss to Manawatū was followed by a 49–5 defeat to Hawke’s Bay, who finished the tournament unbeaten.

CRICKET

The weather had the final say in the fourth round of the Bidwill Cup premier club championship, with both games abandoned without a ball being bowled.

With two rounds to play, the Barbarians lead on 50 points, Inspire Living Greytown are on 39, Burger King Red Star 38, and Lansdowne have 22 points.
