Go Bus Southland Wide Senior Rugby Finals Taking Shape

Premier

Woodlands ran in a convincing win for the Scruffy Butt Shield against Star. Once again proving they are the team to beat in the Galbraith Shield Final on August 15th.

Blues banked an upset 29-22 win to add some confidence into the camp after what has been a challenging season for the defending champions given the number of injuries they have had.

Marist now sits third (25 points) on the ladder but the problem for it is that it has Woodlands to play in its final outing.

While second place Pirates-Old Boys (27 points) and fourth place Star (22 points) will play each other which means one of those teams is likely to at least bank four points.

If teams are tied on points it will come down to which team has the most flag points in the games played between those two teams.

Pirates-Old Boys banked an important 14-10 win over the Eastern-Northern Barbarians on Saturday after trailing 5-0 at halftime.

This weekend Marist take on Woodlands, Star take on Pirates Old Boys and the Baba’s host Blues.

Division One

Midlands have secured a home final following their 25-12 win at home over Wyndham, the question is who will be joining them in the Ack Soper Shield final?

Te Anau and Edendale sit joint in second (24 points), following Edendale’s win over Te Anau on Saturday. It all comes down to Te Anau v Waikaka and Edendale v Midlands this weekend.

If both Te Anau and Edendale win this weekend and finish joint on points, it will come down to which team has the most flag points in the games played between those two teams.

In the Gerald Dermody Shield who will play who in the final comes down to this coming rounds results. Pioneer sit top on 29 points, with Tokanui and Waikiwi on 24 points. Pioneer take on Waikiwi while Tokanui go head to head with Albion this Saturday.

Division Two

Bluff (28 points), DLS (26 points) and Waiau Star (26 points) are all in the running for the CJ Soper Trophy. The finalists and finals location will be decided by this weekends results. Bluff play Star, and Waiau Star and DLS go head to head.

Collegiate have secured a Life Members Trophy home final after a bonus point win over Pirates Old Boys, remaining unbeaten at the top of the table. Either Woodlands or Marist will face Collegiate. Marist take on Midlands in their final game of the regular season and Woodlands face Collegiate.

Presidents

Waikaia (30 points) and Wyndham (27 points) have booked a place in the Presidents Cup Final , but who will host it comes down to this weekends results. The two top of the table sides go head to head in Wyndham this Saturday.

Pukerau (22 points) and Tokanui (20 points) ae through to the Presidents Trophy Final, although where which team will hold the final at home comes down to their games this weekend. Tokanui take on Central Pirates and Pukerau take on Waikiwi.

Women’s

Blues (25 points) and Marist (15 points) are through to the Womens Trophy final.

Although Blues are proving to be a dominant force following a big victory over second placed Marist in the weekend.
