Melville Intermediate - Hamilton Rippa Rugby 2012

On Wednesday 2nd May 2012 Melville Intermediate competed in the Hamilton 'Rippa Rugby' Tournament held at Swarbrick Park, Dindsdale.   Melville fielded two teams in competition.  Our 'A' Team had an incredibly successful day, defeating Whatawhata School 9-2, St Pius 6-2, Fairfield Intermediate 'B' 10-2 before finally defeating Raglan Area School 10-5.  This put the team into the semi finals where they came up against Fairfield Intermediate 'A'.  The game was tied at 5-5 all and went to sudden death, which was won after a drop off by Melville 6-5.   Which left only the final game...

Melville Intermediate's other team, the 'B' team had a quite successful day too.  They defeated Raglan Area School 10-4, lost to Crawshaw School 6-7, defeated Toku Mapihi Maurea 8-0 and Rhode Street School 6-3.  Their final pool game saw them defeat Fairfield Intermediate 'A' 5-3.  That put them into the Semi-Finals as well against St Pius, who they defeated 6-3.

Which meant that Melville Intermediate School played each other in the final.  And both teams have now qualified for the Waikato wide final which will take place in a fortnights time.  Well done to Mr Keegan and all the team!
