Napier racks up a century of points at Hawke's Bay's historic Ross Shield

Hastings East may have won the Battle of Hastings, but Napier produced the most eye-catching performance on day three of Hawke's Bay's historic Ross Shield primary school rugby tournament on Thursday.
Undefeated Napier racked up a cricket score against winless Dannevirke in the day's opening match at Lindisfarne Collge in Hastings, scoring a century of points in a lopsided 101-0 victory which must surely rank as one of the biggest ever wins at the 113-year-old tournament.
In the second game of the day, Wairoa beat Central Hawke's Bay for its second win of the tournament before Hastings East prevailed 26-18 over Hastings West in a close-fought Battle of Hastings to claim the Bill Mathewson Memorial Trophy and also notch their second win in the process.
