Moutere have been joined at the top of the Marlborough rugby division two standings by Whale Watch Kaikoura after the latest round of matches.

Both sides won on Saturday but Moutere's three-point lead at the top of the table disappeared after it was decided to replay the abandoned April 5 match between the two sides.

The points had gone to the Magpies, who led when the match was called off after the referee was injured, but will now be at stake in the rematch.

On Saturday Moutere maintained their unbeaten record by tipping over Woodbourne Tavern Renwick 34-15, while Kaikoura decisively accounted for Pelorus 77-0 in Havelock.

In other matches, BNZ Partners Harlequins downed town rival Biddy Kates Central 56-33 at Lansdowne Park and Crafar Crouch Waitohi picked up their first win of the season with a 50-17 demolition of East Coast Inn Awatere in Picton.
