3rd XV Rugby
The season has started well for the PNBHS 3rd XV getting through the grading games unbeaten and have been placed into the Premier 2 division. The first game of the season saw the team head over to Feilding to play the FAHS 2nd XV. The game was a well contested, free flowing affair with PNBHS coming out winners 31 – 15. The next game was against Whanganui High School 1st XV, this was a close game with the boys trying hard until the end. Unfortunately as the ball bounced dead in front of our chaser the full-time whistle was blown and a narrow 22 – 24 loss resulted. This fired the team up for the third game of the season where they played a spirited Dannevirke 1st XV. Down 10 - 7 at half time, the team changed gears and played with the form shown early in the season and came out winners 26 – 10. Week four was a bye week for the team, to be followed by Cullinane College 1st XV next week.
