Full Match Reports to Follow: 

Johnsonville took almost all of the first 40 minutes to get into the game against Paremata-Plimmerton, conceding a 3-16 deficit after a sluggish, error-ridden start. Visiting fullback Blake Neve scored all his side’s points, including slicing through for a terrific opening try, while Johnsonville had a player in the sin-bin and were unable to get into the game.

The Hawks scored before halftime and then came back with a more assured forwards performance in the second half to score two tries to overtake a flagging Paremata-Plimmerton. Super-sub and former Super Rugby player Kane Thompson came on with about 20 to play and scored the winning try soon after. Thompson then helped steady the ship, helped the men in the blue hoops re-gain territory and sealed the win to with his second try to snap a 14-match losing streak in the Swindale Shield. http://www.clubrugby.co.nz/wellington/story.php?id=2342
