Wairarapa College were brave in defeat against a well-drilled St Patrick’s Silverstream in the latest round of the Wellington secondary schools premier championship last Saturday.

Waicol went down 22-59 at home but never gave up against the joint competition leaders – one of the best college teams in the country – to earn a deserved bonus point for scoring four tries.

The loss leaves Waicol eighth in the 10-team league with one win and five losses.

It doesn’t get any easier for Waicol on Saturday, with their next opponent third-placed St Patrick’s Town at Evans Bay.

Rathkeale’s clash with Feilding High School in the Central North Island championship was postponed because of the covid-19 level two restrictions.

Their clash against the South Group leaders will be played on Saturday at Feilding.


Rathkeale fought out a thrilling 5-all draw with unbeaten Scots College in a Wellington secondary schools premier match at Rathkeale last Saturday.

Luca Molnar and Joe Handiside scored two goals each with Oskar James also finding the back of the net in the exciting encounter.

Rathkeale are now fifth in the league on four points, just two outside the top four.

Wairarapa College conceded two second-half goals to go down 0-2 away to Wellington College, a result which leaves them in sixth with three points.

Rathkeale are away to bottom-of-the-table St Patrick’s Town on Saturday, and Waicol host third-placed St Patrick’s Silverstream.


Rathkeale continued their strong form with a 3-2 win over Cornerstone of Palmerston North last Wednesday and are in second place in the Intercity boys’ championship.

Wairarapa College scored a much-needed win over Waiopehu College, and moved into fifth.

Rathkeale played third-placed Feilding High School last night, and Waicol faced a tough ask against the competition leaders Palmerston North Boys High School at Clareville.

St Matthew’s maintained their unbeaten run in the girls competition with a 2-0 victory over Whanganui Collegiate, and Wairarapa College thrashed Waiopehu College 10-0 to stay third.

Waicol are at home to second-placed Palmerston North Girls’ High School in the game of the round tonight.

St Matt’s will also play at Clareville against Feilding High School, who are fourth in the league.


Monday’s games in the Wellington regional super league were deferred because of the covid-19 level two restrictions.

Wairarapa College will play Wainuiomata College in division two, and St Matthew’s take on Scots College in division three, in next Monday’s round.
