A Great Result

For the first time, we think ever, FDMC 1st and 2nd XV's have played De La Salle at home in Mangere and both come out victorious.

The 2nd XV played in a real arm wrestle that ended in an old fashioned score of 5 to nil. Had we kicked our goals the score would have been inflated but the commitment from the team was very pleasing.

The 1st XV scored two early tries, and despite De La Salle having a few periods of sustained pressure we ran out the winners by 28 to 13. It is our first win over our brother school since 2005 and bodes well for the team going into a long season.

As always we were very well looked after by staff and parents at De La Salle and the boys had lots of stories to share on the long but happy bus ride home.
