Five wins in a row by a combined margin of eight points has earned St Peter’s College a third National Top Four Championship.
In a season dedicated to fallen and influential rugby alumni, Jamie Brown, Dylan Mika and Peter Watt, St Peter’s stunned Napier Boys’ High School 31-28 – rallying from a 21-0 deficit.
Down 21-12 two inspirational moments from captain Niko Jones propelled St Peter’s into a lead they never lost.
In the 42nd minute Jones rejected the prospect of a straight forward penalty kick, opting instead for a scrum inside the Napier 22. In an almost identical fashion, and at the same time as Friday’s try against Hamilton Boys’ High School, Jones combined with his halfback to set up wing PJ Tonga.
