It was another strong turnout for the Wests U6 team.
Going from 6 players to 16 meant they were able to help Blaketown out with some extra players.
A special thanks from the coaches to those Wests players that donned the black jersey for half a game.
All players did some excellent attacking with Faith Gillman taking the attacking player of the day in her first game.
Wests ripping needs some work but Jake Redpath stood out and got the Wests defence player of the day for his great rips.
Kiwi Under 8 showed great improvement against South Westland going down 30-35.
Hamish Miller was impressive scoring 2 tries, strong on defence and into everything earning him Player of the day.
Vinnie Stevens-Glass also scored 2 tries and was impressive on defence chasing down players and really leading from the front.
Connor Reid also showed great skill in only his second game at this level scoring his first try of the season and showing strong running with the ball.
Curtis Smith also showed great confidence scoring himself a try.
Caelan Bond and Raven Boyd also showed a great amount of improvement getting amongst play and making same strong tackle.
All in all a great game of rugby, very even and enjoyable to watch.
Wests Under 8 rugby vs Marist Under 8.
Marist Under 8 rugby team were too strong for Wests on Saturday.
Strong running by Marist saw a number of good tries scored.
After a slow start Wests competed well and two tries were scored by West Player of the Day Allan Harris.
