In a sign of how eager teams are to play in the 2015 NorthTec Adam Blair competition, the tournament kicks off today with a hastily rearranged fixture between Okaihau College and Kaitaia College, hosted at Kaitaia (previously scheduled to play on Wednesday).

The NorthTec Adam Blair rugby league college competition starts in the school Term 1, and has done for the past two years. This year, the competition attracts 11 colleges, an increase from last year, with a new combined team called “Kura Hokianga” which is a selection of players from the Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Te Tonga O Hokianga, Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Kaikohe and the Opononi Area schools.

2014 defending champions Kamo High School take on Dargaville High School this Wednesday, playing at Kamo High School. Kick off is 4.30pm.

Rugby League General Manager, Alex Smits, says we are continually excited about the NorthTec Adam Blair competition and how it attracts the schools. It is a fiercely competitive tournament, having had 3 different winners over the past 3 years, Whangarei Boys High School (2011 and 2012), Kaitaia College (2013) and Kamo High School (2014), fighting for the Adam Blair tohunga. Players are also individually competing for a place in the prestigious NorthTec Adam Blair XIII selection, which will have the opportunity to play a Warriors Development team on 28th March at Kaikohe, as part of the RLN Premiership Season Opener.
