Tamatea leapt into second place in their premier grade Nash Cup pool with a surprise 33-12 win over Havelock North at Bill Mathewson Park in Hastings on Saturday.
Centre Dennon Robinson-Bartlett scored two tries for the hosts, who led 28-0 at halftime of their round two match.
The former Bay of Plenty representative is in his second year with the club, who will be eyeing a Maddison Trophy berth having added Magpies hooker Kianu Kereru-Symes and first five Lincoln McClutchie for this season.
Defending Nash Cup champions Taradale remain top of Pool Two after their second straight bonus-point win.
They defeated Central Hawke's Bay 36-10 at Tareha Recreational Reserve, running in five tries to two.
On the other side of the draw, Napier Old Boys Marist and Hastings are both still undefeated after bonus-point wins over Napier Tech Old Boys (35-17) and M.A.C. (33-12) respectively.
Marist also retained the Hawke's Bay Challenge Shield with that win at Tremain Field.
Hastings halfback Connor McLeod looks set to spend plenty of time in the Hawke's Bay Magpies number 9 jersey in 2021 after Folau Fakatava was ruled out of rugby for the rest of the year with an ACL injury.
The 23-year-old certainly looked the part at club level on Saturday, running the Hastings backline and picking up 13 individual points off the tee.
Clive are third in Pool One after a 38-14 win over Napier Pirate in which their first five Tianua Poto scored two tries and kicked four conversions.
In the second tier Town and Country grade, Aotea lead the Country pool with two wins out of two, after beating Central 31-17 at home on Saturday.
From Town Pool One, Napier Old Boys Marist and Bridge Pa are also undefeated after wins over Hastings (31-15) and Pirate (12-5) respectively.
Taradale and Maraenui also got their second wins in Pool Two over M.A.C. 39-29, and Clive 48-14.
