Below you can see the scoreboard from the first day’s play of the McBride Peterson Cup match played between the two colleges. A good partnership between Jack Wakeling and Tane Workman thwarted the Rathkeale attack. Rathkeale batted well for 21 overs to see out the day’s play.
The annual clash between the two top College teams in the Wairarapa petered out to a tame draw after a promising first day saw the two sides evenly matched.
