PONSONBY FALL TO UNIVERSITY IN SEMIFINAL

The Premiers season came to an abrupt end on Saturday afternoon when they were defeated by University 27-22 in the Gallaher Shield semi-final.

Played at Colin Maiden Park in damp and often blustery conditions, Ponsonby scored three tries and trailed by 17-15 at the halftime break.

Ponsonby were forced to start this match without a recognised first five eighth after William Talataina-Mu was picked up by Southland for the forthcoming Mitre 10 Cup competition and was urgently required in Invercargill for training, throwing Ponsonby's pre-match preparations into disarray. The task of playing in this pivotal position against University was handed to winger Tilitili Puloka, who reportedly had never played here previously. 

Ponsonby started strongly, and in the opening minutes a beautiful break by Keenan Masina freed Patrick Tausie to crash over the line, but the University defenders were able to turn him on his back, preventing the ball from being grounded.  From the ensuing five metre scrum Ponsonby then constructed some good forward momentum and Robert Cobb charged over for the opening try. Jordan Trainor added the extra two points, giving Ponsonby a handy 7-0 lead.

Soon after both University put their first points on the board, a penalty goal from the boot of Tyrone Elkington-MacDonald.

Trainor then responded for Ponsonby with a magnificent 50 metre effort.

Midway through the first spell Ponsonby attempted an attacking move down the left hand flank, only to have Pryor Collier unnecessarily taken out of play. The subsequent penalty was drilled to the corner for the lineout. From the following ruck, Waha Waitohi stretched out to score. The Trainor conversion shaved the upright.

In the final six minutes of the half, University added two converted tries, giving them a 17-15 advantage on the scoreboard at the break.

University commenced the second half with their restart being kicked out on the full. From the scrum on the halfway mark Ponsonby were able to make some good ground, which included an outstanding run by the young prop Robert Cobb. Play then went to the left and Tausie crossed in the corner. Trainor added the extra two points from the sideline.

Ponsonby missed a penalty goal from 35 metes out in the 51st minute, these three points would have been beneficial.

In the 57th minute University regained the lead after they scored their third try following the charge down of an attempted Ponsonby clearing kick. Their successful conversion gave them back the lead in the match at 24-22.

With six minutes to play University added a penalty goal stretching their lead to 27-22.

In the final four minutes Ponsonby set up camp just metres from the University line. Despite being awarded a handful of penalties and scrums, Ponsonby were unable to break the impenetrable University defensive line.   

Ponsonby: 22

Tries: Robert Cobb, Waha Waitohi and Patrick Tausie

Conversions: Jordan Trainor 2

Penalty: Jordan Trainor

PREMIERS ADVANCE TO GALLAHER SHIELD SEMI-FINALS

Their win on Saturday afternoon over Grammar-TEC in the final round of the Alan McEvoy Memorial Shield competition secured the Ponsonby Premiers a spot in next week’s Gallaher Shield semi-finals. Ponsonby will face University at Colin Maiden Park in St Johns in a sudden death encounter.

Against Grammar-TEC the Ponsonby side crossed for six tries in the 36-26 victory, earning them a valuable bonus point which was crucial in their quest for the semi-final place.

To clinch that spot in the finals Ponsonby not only needed a bonus point win against Grammar-TEC, but they also needed the result of at least one other competition match to go their way on Saturday.  That came from the Eden and Suburbs encounter, with Eden unable to record a bonus point in their 23-21 win, which saw them miss out on the playoffs.

Ponsonby finished the round robin on equal points with College Rifles, but as the blue and blacks won that encounter back on the 10th of June they sneak into third place on the table, leaving Rifles with the unenviable task of doing battle with Suburbs at Shadbolt Park next Saturday.

The Ponsonby and Grammar-TEC match was played in superb conditions and the ground was perfect for an open running game, which Ponsonby were intent on playing.

In the opening minute Keenan Masina ran a perfect line on a 40 metre dash to the line for the first of Ponsonby’s six tries.

Just two minutes later a magnificent break by the athletic Presley Tufuga saw Ponsonby go back onto the attack. A well-executed grubber kick by William Talataina-Mu in behind the defence was gathered by Tilitili Puloka who scored out wide.

With three minutes on the clock Ponsonby had raced out to a 10-0 lead, and the frenetic and high paced game was not showing signs of slowing.

Ponsonby fed a lineout five metres from their own line, which was stolen by Grammar-TEC. The home side distributed the ball through their backline, and looked to have a created perfect overlap. However the vigilant Pryor Collier was lurking, and took his chance, grabbing an intercept and racing 95 metres to score. Talataina-Mu added the extra two points.

Grammar-TEC were unable to halt Ponsonby’s dominance of the match and had no answer for the fast pace and outstanding skills displayed by the blue and blacks.

At the mid-way stage in the first spell, Ponsonby nabbed a Grammar-TEC lineout, the loose forward trio combining in a move that would finish 80 metres down field. The mixture of pace and slick passing by Waha Waitohi, Aleks Dabek and Presley Tufuga saw play streak down the left hand touch, the final pass going to Charles Napa’a who crossed for Ponsonby’s fourth, and bonus point try. The successful conversion extended Ponsonby’s lead to 24-0, after as many minutes.

Ponsonby took their 24-0 lead to the halftime break, and knew that a lot of work was still required to take the win. On three occasions in the first half Grammar-TEC were agonisingly close to the Ponsonby line, but were unable to convert their possession and territory into points.

The halftime message from the Grammar-TEC management seemed to work, and in the first minute of the second spell the winger Kitione Taimani showed some remarkable pace on a 60 metre solo run to score. Jono Hickey added the extra two points.

Ponsonby were able to strike back soon after when Tili Puloka crossed for his second try.

Grammar-TEC continued to look for opportunities to score, and in the 56th minute of the match a dropped pass by one of their front rowers was snapped up by Keenan Masina who dashed to the line. Pryor Collier added the extra two points by way of a drop kick, taking the score to 36-7 in Ponsonby’s favour.

At the halfway point in the spell TJ Vaega crossed in the right hand corner for Grammar-TECs second try. Hickey added the conversion from the sideline.

In the final 13 minutes Grammar-TEC enjoyed a wealth of possession, crossing for two more tries, firstly to Lisati Milo-Harris and then to Matthew Storm,.

Ponsonby will now focus on next week’s encounter with University, and a win would see them advance to the Gallaher Shield final on the 29th of July. Despite Ponsonby being victorious over University less than three weeks ago, the students too will be eager for an opportunity to hold the coveted trophy aloft in a little over a week.

Ponsonby 36 (T Puloka 2, K Masina 2, C Napa’a, P Collier tries, W Talataina-Mu 2, P Collier conv) 

Grammar TEC 26 (K Taimani, TJ Vaega, L Milo-Harris, M Storm tries, J Hickey 3 conv)

PREMIERS CLAIM VITAL WIN OVER PAKURANGA

In last Saturday’s penultimate round of the Alan McEvoy Memorial Shield competition the Ponsonby Premiers grabbed a solid 37-19 win over Pakuranga, keeping their Gallaher Shield semi-final hopes very much alive. The five competition points earned from this fixture has Ponsonby placed fifth, on equal points with College Rifles and Eden. A win next week over Grammar-Tec and the result from at least one of the other competition matches next week should see Ponsonby be amongst the top four qualifiers and then advance to the Gallaher Shield semi-finals.

Coming into this match Pakuranga had recorded one solitary win from their previous five matches, and were out of Gallaher Shield play-off contention, but were always going to be hungry for a victory in this game.

The blue and blacks crossed for four tries against Pakuranga, including one scored by William Talataina-Mu, who added 17 points from the boot for a personal tally of 22 points and now leads the season’s top point’s scorers in the Auckland competition

Ponsonby started strongly in this must win match, looking very composed and focused on the job at hand. Pakuranga on the other hand looked were struggling to win their own lineouts, twice in the first five minutes opting to throw long, which on both occasions were gratefully nabbed by Waha Waitohi.

It was on the second of these occasions that Ponsonby were able to prosper. Waitohi made some good ground from the Pakuranga error, and then some excellent support from Matai Fakautoki saw a ruck form 30 metres from the visitor’s line. From the base of the ruck Campbell Woodmass scooted down the left hand touch, passing to Presley Tufuga who ran untouched to the line, scoring in his 40th and Blazer game. Talataina-Mu added the extra two points.

Soon after, Talataina-Mu goaled a handy penalty giving Ponsonby a handy 10-0 lead after as many minutes.

From the restart Pakuranga endeavoured to get into the game, only to concede a turnover to Ponsonby. The ball ended up in the hands of Freedom Vaha’akolo, who displayed some superb pace on a lengthy run down the right hand flank, eluding several would be tacklers. It appeared that Vaha’akolo may go all the way to the line, but a desperate covering tackle saw him bustled into touch at the visitors 22 metre mark.  Pakuranga opted to throw long to the lineout, and once again it was gratefully accepted by Waitohi who charged toward the line, only to be dragged down short. From the ruck, Talataina-Mu sliced through the gap to score beneath the posts, which he duly converted.

Pakuranga were able to get into the game midway through the half with a converted try.

A high tackle by the visitors had them penalised close to their own posts, which Talataina-Mu goaled with ease.

Ponsonby went to the break with a commanding 20-7 lead.

The first 18 minutes of the second spell was a tight tussle, with both sides unable to gain any significant advantage. A slippery surface ensured that ball handling became an issue.

Pakuranga were first to add points in the second spell, with an unconverted try.

With a lead of 20-12 and only having scored two tries, Ponsonby’s task of finishing strongly with a bonus point win from four tries became a little tougher when Tom Fisi’ihoi was shown a yellow card.

Being a man down on the field saw Ponsonby tighten their game, and within minutes they were on attack very close to the visitor’s line. Replacement prop Phil Viane barged over from close range, and again Talataina-Mu converted.

Pakuranga responded a few minutes later with a seven pointer.

With seven minutes to play Talataina-Mu goaled his third penalty of the match, extending Ponsonby’s lead to a seemingly unassailable 30-19.

Then with two minutes left on the clock Ponsonby put the icing on the cake with a gem of a try. From inside the Ponsonby half a move was initiated by Pryor Collier, who wrong-footed the defence on a deceptive run which went one way then another. Play then went wide to Vaha’akolo who ran round his opposite and an excellent run by the right winger he then drew the final defender before passing infield to the supporting Keenan Masina to score beneath the posts.    

Attention now swings to next week’s away match against Grammar-Tec, and whilst they are out of Gallaher Shield play-off contention, they will be a tough opposition. Ponsonby join University, College Rifles and Eden who are all vying for three spots in the semi-finals. Grammar-Tec have recorded only two wins from six outings in this round, and last week were on the receiving end of a 43-12 hiding by Eden. As an old foe of Ponsonby’s , Grammar-Tec will be eager to halt the blue and blacks progress to the finals.

In the curtain-raiser on Saturday between the Ponsonby and Pakuranga Development teams, a last gasp try by halfback Roger Tuamoheloa secured the win for Ponsonby by 23-22.

PREMIERS EDGE UNIVERSITY IN THRILLER

The Ponsonby Premier side have kept their Gallaher Shield semi-final aspirations alive with a gutsy 26-24 win over University at Western Springs on Saturday afternoon. In what had been billed as the match of the round, the intense encounter was played in testing conditions with drizzly rain falling throughout the 80 minutes.  

Ponsonby produced some classic rugby in their come from behind win, and are now placed fourth equal with Eden on the all-important points table.  The Premiers result capped off a satisfying afternoon of rugby for the club in the senior grades, with the Premier Development, the Under 20’s and the Under 85kg sides all recording victories.

Waha Waitohi, William Talataina-Mu and Tom Fisi’ihoi all recorded their blazer game on Saturday afternoon, joining the list of remarkable players who have achieved this notable milestone for the club.

The match did not start as Ponsonby would have planned with the visitors racing out to a 21-0 lead from three converted tries in the first 18 minutes.

The first seven pointer was registered in the opening 30 seconds. The University halfback Basil Aholelei gathered the ball from the first ruck and raced 40 metres untouched toward the tryline. A desperate tackle halted him just short of scoring, but the hooker Kurt Eklund was on hand to barge over for the try which was converted by Tyrone Elkington-MacDonald.

Ponsonby appeared to have some early defensive difficulties, allowing the visitors to score their second try just minutes after their first. The number eight Uini Fetalaiga secured a lineout throw and raced 30 metres to the line eluding several would be tacklers. Elkington-MacDonald again converted.

While a 14-0 score line after seven minutes many in the University camp were predicting a cricket score, as promising Ponsonby attacks could not be completed and defensive gaps were evident.

University were quick to capitalise on any Ponsonby deficiencies, and their third try came from a turnover in Ponsonby’s half. Some slick passing from the forwards, then a good run from Blues loose forward Steven Luatua, followed by a clever offload to fullback Sam Lawson who crossed for the try.

The Ponsonby side glanced at the scoreboard and this seemed to provide the necessary impetus to launch a fightback.

Within minutes of the Lawson try, the blue and blacks found themselves just metres from the University line. A successful lineout and a classic drive to the line resulted in Willie Uili barging over, the try being converted by Talataina-Mu.

Ponsonby’s second try of the match was scored from another lineout close to the visitor’s line. A penalty in Ponsonby’s favour was drilled to the corner. The lineout win and a rolling maul saw Marco Fepuleai crash over. The conversion was unsuccessful and Ponsonby were clawing back the deficit, now trailing by 21-12.

Ponsonby had dominated the latter minutes of the first spell and with a few minutes to play they were awarded an attacking scrum 22 metres from the visitor’s line. Daniel Bowden and William Talataina-executed a perfect wrap-around move, which looked to have been halted by the defence, but Bowden threw a deft pop pass to Freedom Vaha’akolo who eluded the defence to race to the line. Talataina-Mu added the extra two points, taking Ponsonby to 21-19 down going to the break.

In the second spell the visitors looked for opportunities to again control of the match, and to increase their lead. However Ponsonby were playing the smarter game given the conditions. University were struggling to control the slippery ball, and were making fundamental errors.

It was in the 61st minute that Ponsonby seized the lead in the match. A magnificent move from 40 metres out saw Pryor Collier slice through a yawning defensive gap, wrong-footing any potential tacklers, and then score underneath the posts. Talataina-Mu added the extra points, seeing him pass 100 points for the season, and Ponsonby now lead by 26-21.

With ten minutes to play an Elkington-MacDonald penalty goal narrowed the deficit to 26-24, and a late rally his side team was not successful, Ponsonby holding on for the victory.

The win keeps Ponsonby’s semi-final hopes alive and claimed five valuable competition points from this game. To secure their place in the semi-finals Ponsonby will need to win against Pakuranga next week, and then Grammar-Tec in the final round the following week.  Additionally, other results will need to go their way.

The Premier Development side successfully defeated their University opposites by 13-11, whilst the Ponsonby Under 20’s beat Eden by 21-20, and the Under 85’s won their encounter with Grammar-Tec by 16-12.

Ponsonby: 26

Tries:  Willie Uili, Marco Fepuleai, Freedom Vah’akolo and P Collier

PREMIERS WIN IN TRYING CONDITIONS

After their disappointing loss at the hands of Suburbs in the previous round, the Ponsonby Premiers side prevailed on a muddy Williams Park to edge Manukau Rovers by 23-18 in the fourth round of the Alan McEvoy competition on Saturday afternoon.

Far from desirable underfoot conditions and a very slippery ball ensured the match would not be a free flowing affair, but the blue and blacks displayed a massive defensive effort and exceptional handling skills against a physical Manukau Rovers team. Going into this round Manukau Rovers were winless after three matches and languishing at the bottom of the competition table, so desperate to turn the tables.

Due to player unavailability in the Ponsonby ranks a number of forced personnel changes were necessary for this fixture. In what was his first start for the side in several seasons Daniel Bowden was handed the number ten jersey, and his experience was a telling factor in the conditions.  Other changes included Shigeru Kohiyama starting at halfback, and Ben Meredith being called up from the Premier Development side to start on the left wing.

Playing ‘uphill’ in the first spell, Ponsonby began the game on the back foot, having to withstand several threatening attacks from the home side. Whilst they were able to keep their line intact, they did concede a penalty close to the line, which was duly goaled by Calvary Fonoti, the home side going 3-0 up after as many minutes.

Ponsonby responded with a promising attack, only to turn over possession just ten metres from the Manukau Rovers line. The home side then launched a successful counter attack which featured a 70 metre dash down the left hand touch by the elusive running Melani Nanai. Ponsonby were unable to halt this movement, and 90 metres later the try was scored by the hard running number eight Siosuia Kaifa.

With momentum on their side Manukau Rover continued their assault on the Ponsonby territory and it wasn’t long before the blue and blacks were forced to defend a lineout close to their line.  From this lineout the prop William Fonua charged over in the right hand corner. Despite the conversion failing, Manukau Rovers had notched up a handy 13-0 lead after just 16 minutes play.

The match was 20 minutes old before Ponsonby were able to secure some good possession, courtesy of their first penalty of the match. Bowden kicked the ball to the corner, and after several minutes on attack Freedom Vaha’akolo crossed for his tenth try of the season.

The Jordan Trainor conversion attempt was unsuccessful, but he did goal two penalties before the halftime break, Ponsonby trailing by 13-11 at the turn around.

Early in the second spell Ponsonby forced the home side close to their own line. An attempted clearing kick by Fonoti was charged down and Junior Halafuka pounced on the ball, scoring Ponsonby’s second of the match.

Ponsonby maintained their lead for several minutes, but were unable to prevent the Manukau Rovers number eight Kaifa charging over from a handy scrum.

Manukau Rovers led on the scoreboard by 18-16, but this was to be short-lived. Ponsonby had several attempts at the home side line, and their persistence paid off with Sam Ulufonua charging over. Trainor landed the extra points, giving the lead back to the blue and blacks by 23-18.

Despite a late rally by the home team, Ponsonby defended stoutly and held the 23-18 scoreline until the final whistle.

Ponsonby sit in fifth place on the competition table, and the pressure stays on them with another tough encounter looming next Saturday, this time a home fixture against University. To secure a place in the all-important top four finalists of the round, this match is another must win for Ponsonby. University successfully disposed of Pakuranga last week by 31-12, moving to second place on the table. They will want to maintain their spot amongst the top four, so will be keen to secure the competition points from the Ponsonby match.
