Auckland Rugby Champion of Champions Event

September 17, 2015 at 6:56 AM

Well done to the Boys' School Under 40kg rugby team of Middle School students who had a great day of competition at the Auckland Rugby Champion of Champions event run by the Auckland Rugby Union this week.

Held at the Marist Club in Panmure, each of the 10 teams that took part had previously won a tournament in their region of Auckland. Our own Under 40 kg team won the Remuera Zone tournament after beating King's School in the final earlier in the term to earn a spot at the championship final.

Our boys played outstanding rugby over the course of the day; the standard of rugby was exceptional with each encounter more bruising than the one before! The boys won all but one of their games - losing only to the championship winners by one try!

The sportsmanship and commitment on defensive by our boys were noted by spectators, other coaches and the organisers of the tournament. Our boys ended the day with the best defensive record of the tournament having only conceded three tries in all of their games.

This tournament ends a very successful season for our top Middle School rugby team whose only other loss this year was a narrow defeat to Remuera Primary who went on to win the Under 50kg Auckland Championships.
