Round 11 results are in from New Zealand's Bartercard Cup.
As expected, Hibiscus Coast Raiders had no trouble on their home ground, coming away with a win over the Wellington side by 40-14.
Wellington led 10-6 at halftime and extended it to 14-6 before Hibiscus broke down Wellington's defence, and went on the rampage in the last quarter.
Once again Daniel Floyd shows his way with the boot, converting six of the seven tries of which he scored one.
Hibiscus Coast 40 (W. Henare 2, D. Floyd, J. Vaifale, Q. Dane, D. Tepu, S. Stowers tries; Floyd 6 goals)
Wellington 14 (V. Apu'ula 2, N. Taumoli tries; Taumoli goal).
North Harbour have shown once again they are a team to be respected with their 46-24 win over the Manuwera Marlins. A fine performance which coaches Karl Benson & Kenny MacIntosh would be pretty happy with, after the close half time score.
North Harbour 46 (K. Ganley 2, R. Kinkaid 2, K. Johnson, K. Asiata, C. Mataora, M. Manu tries; R. Retimana 7 goals)
Manurewa 24 (T. Karaka, P. Borell, A. Herangi, D. Letele tries; T. Matthews 4 goals).
A bit of a competition between two Marist players, Jerome Ropati and Karl Guttenbeil, to score the most tries is what dominated the match between Marist Richmond Brothers and the Otahuhu Leopards. The final result of 52-22 saw both players with a hat trick each. Otahuhu were right in the game at the break, but a try in the 1st minute of the second half to Marist set the scene and they never looked back. A solid performance by Motu Tony playing at fullback for the Marist side.
Marist Richmond 52 (J. Ropati 3, K. Guttenbeil 3, M. Tony, M. France, K. Cawdron, S. Lavea tries; G. Rota 6 goals)
Otahuhu 22 (G. Tuakura 2, J. Yandell, E. Mann tries; T. Laiseni 3 goals).
Once again the Canterbury Bulls put on a fine performance at home on Saturday night to beat the visiting Central Falcons by 48-4, and consolidating their third spot on the competition table.
Canterbury fullback Lusi Sione had three touchdowns and kicked a goal to score 14 in the Bulls' victory.
Canterbury Bulls 48 (L. Sione 3, E. Hei Hei 2, A. Harris, T. Pelenise, J. Manning, V. Whare tries; J. O'Brien 5, Sione goals)
Central Falcons 4 (J. Royal try).
The Glenora Bears managed five tries against Mt Albert who scored nine to win 42-22 in a high scoring match at Harold Moody Park in Auckland. With the score very close at halftime with the Lions only ahead by two points, it looked to be a tough battle but the fitness of the Mt Albert side shone through in the end.
Mt Albert 42 (A. Ikihele 4, S. Dewhurst, H. Va'asa, A. Fungapo, M. No'ovao, M. Asaou tries; S. Buckingham 3 goals)
Glenora 22 (C. Nahu, A. Iole, S. Hatch, T. Samoa, H. Lauaki tries; T. Edwards goal).
As expected the Eastern Tornadoes absolutely demolished the Taranaki Wildcats by 70-4 Ngamotu Domain on Sunday afternoon. The Tornadoes had no trouble clocking up their 14 tries and only allowing to 1 try to the Taranaki side.
Eastern Tornadoes 70 (N. Ngametua 4, R. Geilles 2, K. Mene 2, G. Tupou, D. Fisiiahi, N. Scanlan, W. Sua, A. Faufa, A. Liaroa; Geilles 7 goals)
Taranaki Wildcats 4 (D. Rameka try).
