West Coast under-10s centre back Antonio Verhoeven had the ball and the heft to break through Buller’s
much smaller opposition to the tryline.
The West Coast Red and White
development under-10 junior rugby
teams were put through their paces
in matches played in Rugby Park,
Greymouth, on Saturday.
The drizzly conditions did not faze
West Coast Red when they met Buller
Blue in their opening game, which they
It was a tight battle, though. West
Coast was ably led by Wil England
and Antonio Verhoeven, who both
showed what a season playing above
their age group can do for their skills
and confidence. Both made good metres
when carrying the ball, and made some
great offloads to their backline.
Verhoeven was strong on defence,
slowing Buller’s for ward play. Lachlan
Oliver and Kade Johnson had improved
games this week, showing they had
gained a lot from their coaches.
Oliver was involved in every ruck
and maul and with his good body
positioning over the tackled player,
made the ball available. Johnson was all
over the paddock and worked tirelessly.
They were backed up well by Elliot van
der Geest who made some great tackles
and Mack Fahey who persisted in
pestering the Buller attack.
Elijah Mason-Anderson had a couple
of blistering runs down the sideline,
only to be caught short at the line.
Brayden Mitchell also showed pace and
a good eye for the gap.
Buller edged out West Coast, but West
Coast can be pleased with their effort
and with the skills they have learned in
the short time they have been together.
In the second game, Coast Red beat
Buller Red, 30-5 . After a draw with this
team last week, the West Coast boys
were keen to get ahead in this one.
Strong defensive pressure forced Buller
into making mistakes, and quick action
by England on the loose ball gave West
Coast the good start they needed. He
scored two tries and combined well with
Verhoeven, who scored four. Brayden
Williams was good at halfback with
strong passes to his backline, and Jake
Kendrick capitalised with some good
metres. Jackson Dixon was good on
West Coast White, captained by
Eddie Rea, was made up of players
from the Marist, Wests, Kiwi and South
Halfback Rea had a particularly good
first game against Buller Red, which
West Coast won 30-0 . Rea was well
supported by a strong for ward pack
of Marco Leleifua, Caleb Beri, Billy
Vincent, Allan Harris, Jake Redpath,
Armaan Ali and Joe Tauwhare. Caleb
Beri had an outstanding first game
scoring two of the six tries. Tries were
also scored by Marco Leleifua, Martin
Schist, Ruben Rochford and Jack
West Coast lost to Buller Blue 5-25 in
their second match.
Coast, Buller do battle
COAST JUNIOR RUGBY
COAST JUNIOR RUGBY
Roger Federer already has
dropped two more sets at the
US Open than he did during his
entire two weeks en route to the
title at Wimbledon.
Worried about a recent back
problem that kept him from
getting ready the way he usually
does for a grand slam tournament,
Federer had to overcome an early
deficit and a late lapse today
to edge 19-year-old American
Frances Tiafoe 4-6, 6-2, 6-1, 1-6,
6-4 in a compelling first-round
contest under the Arthur Ashe
“I didn’t have the preparation I
was hoping to get,” Federer said. “I
always knew I was going to come
in feeling rusty or not great.”
The No 3-seeded Federer, whose
most recent of five championships
at Flushing Meadows came in
2008, got broken in the first game
and dropped the opening set of
the topsy-tur vy match.
He then appeared to take control
by grabbing eight of nine games to
seize the second and third sets.
But he let that lead slip away.
There was more trouble when
Federer served for the match
leading 5-3 in the fifth and got
“I was quite up and down,”
Federer said, acknowledging that
he was cautious with his footwork
and had some trouble seeing the
Tiafoe’s take: “He won by the
skin of his teeth.”
Federer’s initial match point
came at 5-3, 40-30, but Tiafoe
staved that off, then broke.
He produced a cross-
court forehand winner at an
unbelievable angle to earn the
chance, before converting it with
a terrific forehand passing winner
down the line.
Tiafoe roared and pumped a fist
and sprinted to the sideline for
the changeover. When he had to
come back out and ser ve, Tiafoe
was a bit flat. Federer wasted his
second match point with a netted
backhand. On the third — with
Federer’s wife, Mirka, covering her
eyes in the stands — Tiafoe hit a
stumbling forehand into the net.
“In these best-of-five-set
matches,” Federer said, “you have a
lot of lives sometimes.”
It was Federer’s 79th career
victory at the US Open, equaling
Andre Agassi for second-most.
Only Jimmy Connors has more,
Federer played with the roof shut
at Ashe for the first time.
He missed last year’s tournament,
when the retractable cover made
its debut, because he took off
the second half of 2016 to let his
surgically repaired left knee and a
bad back fully heal.
“It felt like people were happy to
see me again,” Federer said.
In 2017, he is 36-3 with five
titles, including the Australian
Open and Wimbledon, where
Federer won every set he played
across seven matches while
collecting his record eighth trophy
at the All England Club and 19th
Grand Slam championship overall.
For more than a half-hour
yesterday, it appeared as if Federer
was still dealing with the after-
effects of having tweaked his back
during a loss in the hard-court
final at Montreal this month.
He sat out the following week’s
tournament at Cincinnati. At least,
Federer said, his back was not in
“My hope and my belief is that
it ’s only going to get better from
here,” Federer said.
Tiafoe, who is from Maryland
and now is based in Florida, is
ranked 70th and has never been
past the second round at a major
This was his second match
Tiafoe pushed Federer to a first-
set tie-breaker when they faced
each other in March at the Miami
Masters before losing in two sets.
“Eventually,” Tiafoe said, “I’ll
win more than I lose these.”
