A second unexpected'' win in rugby league finals play has seen the Upper Hutt Tigers move into Wellington rugby league's top four and a semifinal on Saturday against the defending champions, Porirua. The Tigers, captained by Con- rad Simon, have fired on from a frustrating season where they fin- ished seventh in the round-robin play. Now they have struck form when it counts most, dispatching the highly fancied Randwick, who finished third, 26-16 on Saturday, a week after sending sixth-placed University on their way. I'd be struggling to know when we last made the semis,'' coach Tyrone Paikea says. It's been a while but we have been rebuilding and we have a good pool of young players coming through. The Tigers' success is creating a real buzz and comes in the club's 50th year ahead of their formal celebrations of a proud history. That's something extra for our celebrations. It's very important andtheonusisonusifitcanbe achieved. We're realistic about making the grand final, but now the ante goes up,'' he says, acknowledging his young charges are about to face up to a champion side looking for a fourth title in a row. But for us it's been all about a game at a time without looking any further than that.'' Saturday's win, on the back of a 16-4 halftime lead, followed a satisfying buildup during the week. It's always about on the day, of course, but the training and the preparation was stellar and I was quietly confident with the buildup,'' he says of his young side. The forwards have been the key to their success, dominant in the mud against University and overpowering Randwick in the dry. The pack just carried on but I thought they were complemented better by the backs on Saturday onadaywhereIfeelwe adapted better to the windy conditions,'' Paikea says. The reliable Reihana Haer- ewa was rewarded with two tries on Saturday while other four-pointers went to Damian Madsen, Ford Keegan and Kerry Whaanga, with Simon slotting three goals. The Tigers' Wellington rugby league Appleton Shield semi- final against the Porirua Vikings is Saturday at Wainuiomata's Wise Park at 3pm.
