NEW BRIGHTON have

turned around their rough

start to the season by

claiming the DCL shield

and now throwing their

hat in the ring for a late top

six push.

On Saturday, New

Brighton defeated Marist

Albion 24-17 to win the

DCL

Shield,

which is

played

for in a

challenge

format

during

each round

of the

premier

metro competition.

The win moved New

Brighton to just one point

outside the top six, two

weeks after they found

themselves nine points

behind the sixth-placed

team.

“An attitude change had

to happen . . . they’ve really

started to hit their straps

and the effort has really

lifted,” said New Brighton

coach Scott Pawson.

New Brighton are on 23

points in eighth position.

However, with Shirley (26),

their first defence against

Dunedin’s John McGlashan

College – losing 26-27.

The unsuccessful defence

brought an end to one of

the shortest periods of time

any school has held the cup.

Following their win

on Saturday, St Andrew’s

travelled to Dunedin by bus

on Sunday. Still recovering

from a bruising encounter

with St Thomas’, they were

pipped by John McGlashan,

which scored a try with

5min remaining to secure

Linwood (24), Sydenham

(24) and Burnside (22) all

within striking distance,

each team almost has their

top six hopes in their own

hands with just two rounds

left in the first phase of the

competition.

Following the first phase,

the 12 teams will be split

into a bottom and top six.

On Saturday, New

Brighton will travel to

Sumner for the battle of

the beaches.

Sumner are lingering in

10th spot. However, they

have won three of their last

four games and Pawson is

the cup. The Trust Bank

Cup started the season

at Christchurch Boys’

High School before being

claimed by St Thomas’ for

the first time a week prior

to their loss to St Andrew’s.

Last week The Star

reported St Thomas’ win

over CBHS was their first

in history. However, a

number of old boys have

pointed out they were part

of the first St Thomas’ team

to defeat the CBHS first XV

16-13 in 1986.

GRUDGE MATCH: The DCL Shield will be on the

line when New Brighton meet Sumner in the

battle of the beaches at St Leonards Park on

Saturday.

expecting a difficult match

at St Leonards Square in

front of a strong Sumner

crowd, which he describes

as being “worth an extra 10

points.”

Meanwhile, the battle

for the first phase Hawkins

Cup is even more equally

poised with Christchurch

and defending champions

Lincoln University locked

on 33 points.

With both sides knowing

a slip up could put them

out of the cup race, bonus

points or even points

differential could be the

decider.
