THE crowd were well entertained on Old Orchards by the 1st XVs of St Charles College and Northwood recently.

The visiting team opened up the scoring with a well worked counter attack and duly converted to lead 7-0.

The Saints boys bounced back quickly opening up their account, scoring the first of their seven tries. Northwood opted to take a shot at goal, landing a long range penalty to get back in front, 7-10.

Saints then kicked into top gear, scoring some superb tries but failed to fully capitalise on this momentum and Northwood hung in, scoring just before half time to stay within seven points.

Northwood started the second half better than the home team and scored a try to momentarily take the lead 24-25.

The Saints boys ramped up their defensive efforts, causing numerous mistakes on the Northwood attack, which lead to opportunities to counter attack.
