Campbell boys pass test against Methody

Campbell College qualified for a Danske Bank Schools' Medallion Shield quarter-final against Sullivan Upper after a 10-5 victory over crosstown rivals Methodist College.

And former Methody pupil Nicholai Koplewski played a bit part in the deciding try at Belmont.

There was only the one score in the first period when the visitors, took the lead following a line-out and drive with a mass of forwards crashing over.

After the restart Campbell's pressure eventually told when left winger Josh Haslett was justly rewarded with an excellent try.

The winning score came after a break from Paddy Beverland, the out-half linking with Koplewski who brought play close to the Methody line before being tackled.

In the process he off-loaded to the promising third form second row Matthew Crowther who went under the posts.
