Saturday was a day to remember for Rathkeale College student Harrison Dudley.

In the morning, he scored a hat-trick for the First XI in their 4-0 away win over St Patrick’s Town in the first game of the Wellington Boys’ premier grading rounds.

In the afternoon, Dudley made his Central League debut for Trust House Wairarapa United, replacing legendary footballer and mentor Paul Ifill, and provided an assist in their 7-0 thumping of Wainuiomata.

Dudley joined fellow student Riley Grover in the United lineup. Grover has been one of the standouts for United and has been selected for the national Under-20 training camps.

Wairarapa College also started their grading series with a 4-0 win over Kapiti College. Scott O’Connor, Hadley Wiramanaden [2], and Jayden Fennell scored in the first half.

Rathkeale are at home to Onslow College and Waicol host Tawa College in the second round of the series on Saturday.


Waicol’s First XV had a tough start to their Wellington premier grading rounds, going down 10-41 to Mana College at home.

The young Waicol side had no answer as Mana ran in seven tries in the dominant performance.

Waicol are at home on Saturday to Wainuiomata College, who defeated Bishop Viard College 12-5 in their opening match.

Rathkeale kick off their Central North Island championship campaign with an away game against St John’s Hastings.


Rathkeale and St Matthew’s Collegiate had home games last night in the opening round of the Intercity premier championship.

Both teams played their respective First XIs from Feilding High School at Clareville in the competition, which involves secondary schools from Wairarapa, Manawatu, Horowhenua, and Whanganui.

Waicol will play Whanganui High School in the boys’ championship at Massey University, while the Waicol girls will take on Whanganui Collegiate at Palmerston North.

For the first time, Kuranui College will play in the Manawatu Boys Division One competition. They were scheduled to play Tararua College at Clareville on Wednesday night. – CHRIS COGDALE
