This turned into a very decent workout for newton Abbot against a very resolute Wellington Side. Despite the score line, Wellington proved to be a very decent side. Wellington almost opened the scoring early in the first half with a great move shifting the ball out wide, but some great defending assisted by the side line helped Newton Abbot stop them scoring. A lot of the play after this was done in the Wellington half, however their defence where really solid and it took multiple attempts until The All Whites broke the deadlock in the 24th minute of the first half. This followed shortly after with another try to leave the score.
