The Logan Ili coached side will take on long-time premiers Tawa, in a Hardham Cup game that they need to win if they are to attain their long-held dream of prom- otion. The following week s game against another premier side, Avalon, will probably be crucial too, as these three teams and Wests battle the last games out for the final three premier places in 2011 (with Old Boys-Uni team already assured of retaining the top status). The Taka did themselves no favours on Saturday, losing 19-25 to a fellow senior-one combination, Poneke, in a game they must have been targeting for four valuable points. We made too many mistakes when it mattered and we gave them some soft tries, Ili was left lamenting. A four-on-two overlap in the last minute was not well executed and the opportunity, and the game, was lost. Now is the time for a little bit of soul searching. The team is extremely fit but we need to work together more as a team. We need to pull together in training and set a good game plan, he says. Tawa are the only premier side of the four to visit Maoribank. We re hard to beat at home so we are hoping there is a good crowd. Up the road at Maidstone Park at the same time Upper Hutt will be looking for a first Jubilee Cup win, after another close loss on Saturday, 24-27 to Pokeke at Kilbirnie. Upper Hutt did enough to win and when Keelan Poi made a scything line break from halfway, the side s fourth and winning try looked on, but the final pass was not given. A deliberate Poneke infringement then brought a pen- alty and three points when seven were begging. Poneke then held the ball for long periods and, in the last minutes, were able to break the hard-working Upper Hutt defence which for the game s last quarter included Cory Jane at fullback. Upper Hutt play Petone on Saturday, with both teams looking for a season-restoring first Jubilee victory.

Photo: DARREN TAUMATA By COLIN WILLIAMS An inability to put together a consistent 80 minutes hindered another improved effort from the Upper Hutt Tigers in Wellington premier league on Saturday. The locals, on their home Whakatiki Park, took it to the more favoured Petone and with their forwards making plenty of ground up the middle they were able to grind out a deserved 12-10 halftime lead. But then it all changed. Petone accepted they were not going to win the up-front arm wrestle stuff and soon found space and time on the flanks to racket away with the game, including a hat-trick to the for- mer Tigers winger Bernard Gregorious. Two late tries to the promising Jordan Croft brought some late game respectability but the coach Tyrone Paikea was again left lamenting his side s inconsistencies. It s not a sustained effort. Plenty of the things we do are promising, things are starting to show but fitness remains a prob- lem. . .wearestillametrefrom the pace, from where we should be, he says. With a huge change in person- nel the season was always going to be a rebuilding one and a raft of injuries have only made a tough ask harder, Paikea says. The Tigers have two round- robin games to go, against top four sides in Porirua (awa) and Te Aroha (home), before their expected seventh finishing pos- ition will see then play an elim- ination final as the Appleton Shield is completed.
