It was a cold, muddy game, but both teams displayed good offence and defence despite the slippery conditions.
The crowd was equally spirited on both sides. But Waiau Star had the home town advantage - everytime a try was scored people cheered wildly, and those sitting in their cars honked their horns madly.
I didn't catch the score but Otautau lost. Here are a few photos starting at half-time. Otautau is in the red and white stripes.
Waiau Star retains the Western Banner.
Otautau's next game is against the Central Pirates on Saturday, 5 July, 6pm at Holt Park, Otautau. Come on out and support the team.
