The under 55kg team competed in a tournament at Pakuranga rugby club. Our first game was against Saint Kentigern, followed by Howick, Bucklands Beach, Pakuranga and the final against Farm Cove.

Our team managed to build solid combinations both in the forwards and the backline. A strong offence from our team gave us an advantage in many of our pool games. The forward pack produced many turnovers throughout the games from their high work rate around the field. The backline complemented by capitalising in territory and converting into points.

 

The team was triumphant in winning the tournament, conceding one try the whole day. We were very proud of the teamwork and how grounded the students were in winning the competition. Somerville will now represent the south eastern zone in the Auckland Champs, to be held in late June.
