North Otago Vs King Country Review

In a low scoring game played in wet conditions overhead but on a good surface North Otago and King Country fought out, often literally, a four all draw, with both side kicking penalties in both halves.  The game burst into fisticuffs early in the first half but North Otago immediately indicated to the opposition that there would be no tugging of the forelock in this game.  Consequently North Otago lost hooker Sione Vea and tighthead prop Dan Towler while King Country lost loosehead prop Carl Carmichael for ten minutes, a situation which required both teams to run on substitute players for any scrums which upset the tempo of the game.  Down to thirteen men North otago produced a gutsy defensive effort which was not lost of coach, Barry Stevens.
