Karaka overcame a spirited Onewhero side up on the hill on Saturday and secured third place on the points table.

This would be one of the better club rugby games I have watched and photographed this year. Onewhero  played the more structured game of the two teams, while Karaka proved to be very good at defending their line and extremely dangerous from counter-attack situations once they had turned the ball over.
