Club League and the 2014 Season Winners

Club League was again vibrant. The 10 team MuliKai Cooker Premiership saw an climatic finish to the senior season with Otangarei Knights going on a three match winning streak to firstly defeat the Portland Panthers, then shock minor Premiers the Takahiwai Warriors, then come from a 26 – 12 deficit with less than 20 minutes to play to stop Hikurangi from winning their fourth straight victory!

The Bluegoose every Sunday was a great place to be, with over 500 kids playing every week.  The 13s, 15s and 18s all had good numbers and you can really see the improvement in the quality of the game.  The Muriwhenua Rubgy League Club hosted a four school, after school mini mod competition.

Next year will see some changes in junior league with the grades changing to evens to see 6s, 8s, 10s, 12s, 14s , 16s and 18s grades.  With the 16s and 18s moving to play Saturday football.  We are also exploring the opportunity of moving Mini Mod League in the Mid North to be a mid-week after school competition with a mix of school and club teams competing.
