Game one Parkes versus Millthorpe: In arctic-like conditions both teams were having trouble holding onto the ball- Parkes were applying pressure early but Milthorpe scored a long try against the flow of play. Parkes stole the ball with Sonny opening the scoring for Parkes. Hugh was showing the boys how to tackle with a fine effort- with Ewan scoring to give Parkes the lead 2-1 at halftime. A heavy tackle from Kyan lead to Callum being in space for a run.

Patrick showed his toughness tackling well even after loosing his modelling career and tooth in the first half. Parkes teamwork was improving, with Dom working hard. The teams tackle technique improved with Zac and Ewan taking down larger opponents. A good game played well by both teams and other than Rice's hat it was a good result for Parkes winning 2-1

Wellington we're improving and scored to tie up the game. Fergus was busy defending hard with Ewan and Henry proving a handful in attack. Great teamwork and a string of passes lead to Hayden scoring for Parkes to lead 2-1 at halftime.
