Match Report for

Newport (1st) vs. Portland (1st)
15 October 2016

Location: Ft. Adams State Park, Newport

Newport: 41    Portland: 17

Beautiful fall day. Sunny with no breeze. Match played on the natural grass at Ft. Adams State Park.

The first half was even up until the end, with both teams scoring two tries, converting one before Newport ran in a try just at the stroke of half time after a kick downfield allowed the Newport wing to run 50+ meters.

The second half saw Newport make the most of their chances, running in four more tries converting two to Portland's one unconverted try.

A good match and thanks to Brandon and Colin, each team's captain, and the coaches for a good league fixture.

Referee: Don Jennings
