The second game for the day was between Cooks RLC and Otago University RLC . The game was played in perfect conditions and kicked off at 2.30 pm. Cooks opened the score card virtually straight after the ref blew the start whistle! Scoring a try and converting it.

The stage was set very early for a great game. Cooks kept u the momentum and drive putting 7 tries on the board before halftime. University succeeded  in scoring one try in the first half . At halftime the score card was definitely in Cooks favour  with a score of 32 against University sitting on 4.

The second half saw university tighten up on their defence  with Cooks only gaining one try in the second half. University gained an additional try in the second half.

Cooks worked hard to gain a win against University  in a fast flowing and clean game of rugby league.
