Having lost the pre-season game to Horowhenua, Wairarapa have shown fantastic improvement in beating them near the end of the season. Some outstanding fielding by Hugo Wakeling and great bowling all round with only 15 wides in the innings, Wairarapa set themselves up for a very getable run chase.
A solid top order start seeing off Horowhenuas best and quickest bowlers allowed Captain Jake McIntyre to play another fine innings of 37 followed up from his 95 last week. Phagen Clarke-Winiata coming in at 8 finished Horowhenua with some excellent bottom order batting to see the home team through.
Well done to our boys. It is great to see how much you have developed throughout the season.
