U15s game highlights:

The game at Manurewa Rugby Club was for 3rd and 4th play off. We settled into our business early on, and the encounter was a torrid affair, with teams going try for try in the first half. The only difference in the teams was the odd save by their loose forwards. But as usual, North Harbour's never say die attitude continued to pay results. As with the previous fortnight, Te Raki Pae Whenua could not maintain its lead, losing in the final minutes. They proudly kept going to the end, with Manaia Drage and Carlos Phillipps playing well with Jackson Topine.

U15s Game Highlights 1/10:                                  

Te Raki Pae Whenua playing in their first Under 15 team, played with plenty of guts and determination. They were able to regularly break the Auckland defense, but were also pretty open in the second half to letting soft tries in. In the second half, both teams traded tries, almost at will, but scored some of the best tries of the day. In the end our lack of a kicker told, with the game being lost in the final minutes with a try being scored handy to the posts and the conversion sealing the fate of this team. Jackson Topine shone as a boy from Kaipara College with a league background, who was keen to play this game, successfully.
