Pakuranga United Rugby Club (PURC) had a successful weekend on the field, with their four top teams recording wins.

The top three teams of the club (Premier, Premier Development and U21s) made the big trip out west to Shadbolt Park to face Suburbs in an East vs West classic.

Going into the match, Suburbs topped the premier men’s table with two previous wins over Waitakere and Eden so Pakuranga had their work cut out for them.

It was a close match all game, both teams sitting on 13 points at half time.

The men from the east prevailed in the second half however, closing out an exciting game with a 19-16 scoreline.

The PURC premier men have now won two games and lost one and sit comfortably in eighth place on the table, eight points ahead of Marist in ninth.

The club’s premier development side recorded a 45-17 win over their rivals while the U21s also prevailed 41-19.

These sides are now unbeaten through the first three rounds of their respective competitions and are both firmly in the top five on their tables.

The PURC U85 Black Panthers also continued their unbeaten streak, winning 15-13 in a tight match against Grammar TEC Old Boys to put them third on the table.

The Pakuranga line-up will return to Bell Park this weekend where the Premiers and Premier Development face Waitakere and the under 21s face Grammar TEC.

The U85 Black Panthers travel to Colin Maiden Park to face the University Debt Collectors.
Junior rugby also kicks off this weekend.
