2016 North Harbour U16 Team CARDINAL 


Under 16 Cardinal

Head Coach – Brad Emslie (0221229335)
Assistant Coach – Dave Thomas
Manager – Mark Nola (021981407)


24th September vs Auckland South - Marist Old Boys - Finals Day

Harbour 0 vs. Auckland South 43

(Half-time 0-26)

Game Comments:

Auckland South scored after 5 min and consistently kept the foot down for the entire game.  The score does not reflect the effort put in and the number of chances given away.  Credit to the boys who never gave up.  Not wanting to make excuses but having 3 front rowers pull out due to injury on the Friday did not help our cause.  Under 16 Cardinal ended up finishing in 4th place overall with a won 2 lost 2 record.


17th September vs Northland North - Kaikohe

Harbour 17 vs. Northland North 7

(Half-time 5-7)

Harbour Point Scorers: Maine Kitzen 2 tries; Samuel Samu 1 conv; Julian Vea penalty try.

Game Comments:

Great Bus Trip up to Kaikohe with the boys in good spirits on arrival. For a number of the team this was the furthest away from Auckland they had been.  Heavy rain and a strong wind greeted the players at kick off.  Harbour played into the conditions in the first half and got off to a good start with an unconverted try after 10 mins.  A lop sided penalty count and a player sent to the bin allowed Northland back into the game and they finally scored close to the posts to give them a 7 – 5 half time lead.  The conditions gradually improved in the 2nd half but Harbour had a roll on and played some great rugby that defied the conditions scoring twice to take the win. 


10th September vs Auckland Central - Harvey Wright

Harbour 6 vs Auckland Central 34



3rd September vs Auckland East - Waitemata Park

Harbour 20 vs. Auckland East 17

(Half-time 10-7)

Harbour Point Scorers: Bill Halo, Vili Sio, Lockie McNair tries; Brodie Kent pen; Samuel Samu 1 conv.

Game Comments:

Strong start by forwards dominating possession and territory.  1st try to Bill Halo after 28 mins unconverted.  A flurry of action just before half time with Vili Sio scoring also unconverted and Auckland East striking back with a converted try right on the half time whistle.

Second half was an arm wrestle.  Lockie McNair scored a clever try converted by Sam Samu but Auckland East struck back immediately with a try of their own.  Both teams traded penalties and Harbour ended the game defending their own line well.
