Mahurangi Senior Touch finals go down to wire

The Mahurangi Senior Touch Module wrapped up last month with nail-biting finals in both the social and open grades.

The open grade was won by team Touch’e, which beat Tap and Gap 4-3 after eight minutes of drop-off time. Drop-off time involves players leaving the field from each side until a try is scored when the match is still drawn at the end of regular time.

The two open grade teams were reduced from six to three players each, before Touch’e eventually broke through.

The social grade final also went into drop-off time, with WDPO beating The Opposition 3-2 after the score was 2-2 at full time.

Two more teams participated in this year’s module, with 20 in the social grade and four in the open.

Module organiser Bernie Kose says the social atmosphere of the tournament is what keeps people involved.

“Everyone is there to have a good time and people enjoy that,” he says.

He said the competition would require more quality referees in future, with just three of a high standard available this season.

Bernie says this, combined with space restrictions, means there isn’t much room for expansion in the tournament at this stage.
