The night will again feature a pro- fessional fight with the all-action Scott The Rock'' Gardner taking on Auckland's William Tauaki in the night's main event. The Vines Room at Trentham Racecourse will again be the venue for a night of action from 7.30pm where the three winners from Saturday's tournament in Palmer- ston North will want to turn it on for their local spectators. Ryan Scaife, Harrison Scaife and Leroy Hindley were all impressive and, based on their progress and form, will all be looking ahead to the nationals in Lower Hutt at Labour Weekend with plenty of confidence. Thirteen-year old Ryan Scaife the national cadet champion weighing 57 kilograms, fought Cedric Carter from Hicks Bay, a good puncher who put Scaife under pressure early. The pedigree youngster weathered the storm and then got to work countering his opponent with effec- tive combinations before putting two standing eight counts on Carter late in the the fight. His fitness and ability showed through as the bout played out with Scaife going on to win with a com- fortable points decision. His 64kg brother, Harrison, was next to show his class. A national runner-up in the youth division, he took on a former national open champion in Rotorua's Julian Ngatai. Ngatai, four years older than his opponent, started well but Scaife gave as good as he got early and then, midway in the second round, he started to assert his dominance with clean body shots which took their toll. By the final bell it was all one way traffic with Scaife's superior fitness and skill paying dividends. Scaife was awarded the most scientific boxer of the night trophy. The third Heretaunga fighter, Leroy Hindley was matched with Harley Ward, an opponent he had met before. Things were tight early on but once Hindley relaxed and settled into his rhythm his jabs and one-two counters were too much for his opponent. After an especially convincing last round the judges were to deliver an easy decision to the 69kg Hindley. This Saturday, Dominic Roe and Junior Ese will be other local club fighters on display. It's a top quality bill and no doubt another big crowd will be along to support The Rock'' and the rest of the locals. Netball games that matter The top half-bottom half'' dynamic of Hutt Valley premier netball continued on Saturday with the unbeaten local Rimutaka Rugby and Maidstone United recording their fourth wins alongside the two Naenae combinations. This Saturday's play will end the statistical domination of two of the four teams, all sitting 12 points clear of the winless bottom four. Naenae White look the strongest with the side's goal percentage riding at a massive 256, compared to the near 140s of the other three unbeaten combinations. Maidstone will take them on in the 11am fea- ture game at Taita's Walter Nash Stadium. Earlier Rimutaka, the winners of the Hutt Val- ley competition's first round play a year ago, will meet Naenae Blue in what should be a compelling and tight affair. So the real work starts and Rimutaka and Maidstone's respective demolitions of Ulalei and Manaroa Green on the weekend told us little. A cohesive Rimutaka went out to a 22-7 first quarter lead before a competitive Ulalei fought back to share the second and third stanzas. A 19-13 response by Rimutaka in the final quar- ter, coupled with the margin they had banked in the first and probably sat on, saw them comfort- able winners at 70-49. Maidstone played well as a unit to secure a 48-31 result against Manaroa Green, who were left regretting their below par third quarter.
