Do you work in a large organisation?  Are you able to help sell Hangis for Boys High School?

Whangarei Boys High School 1st XIII are on a mission to pay back to MultiKai Cookers, who guaranteed their attendance, by answering a last minute SOS to cover a shortfall in funding, to attend the NZRL Secondary School Nationals.

MultiKai Cookers’ support for Boys High was not traditional sponsorship, they simply guaranteed the funding with the idea that through the use of a MultiKai Cooker they would then be able to fundraise the shortfall.

Doug Andrews for webI’m a big believer in helping people to help themselves, that’s part of the culture that has built the success of the MultiKai Cooker Brand, Rather than giving the money to WBHS, we have agreed to guarantee the money to cover the immediate shortfall so they could travel to the tournament. We will then help them raise the money through the use of a Jumbo MultiKai Cooker,” said Doug Andrews owner and inventor of the MuliKai Cooker.

One of Andrews’ passions is masters rugby league, so he is calling on his Portland Panthers Masters team to help WBHS in their cause.  “The boys are always doing hangis as fundraisers to get the teams around the world, for masters events, so they already have the knowledge and network to make selling hangis a profitable fundraiser,” Andrews says.



Boys High are running a Hangi on Thursday, October 3oth and are looking for people to sell on their behalf.
To help out you will need to pre-sell hangis and collect payment before October 30th.

Tigers Suffer First Defeat in 2013Tigers Suffer First Defeat in 2013

Takahiwai Warriors have dealt the Moerewa Tigers their first defeat of 2013, beating them 26 – 16 at Simpson Park in Moerewa.  The Warriors who are currently in third position, have progressively looked stronger and stronger throughout 2013 and have signalled their intent on the top three of the RLN Premiership.

Hokianga Pioneers defeated City Knights 36 – 28 to remain in fifth position.  The defeat was a blow to the Knights who had their sights set on the top six after back to back victories.   Muriwhenua Kuaka confirmed their position at 6th place with a resounding 72 – 24 victory over the Horahora Broncos.  Hikurangi retain second place with their victory by default over the Otaua Valley.  The Valley’s, who have been progressively improving, defaulted due to the long weekend and players being unavailable due to a number of unveilings.   The Northern Wairoa Bulls retain the fourth position after having the bye.

In other results the Portland Panthers leapfrog the City Knights into 7th position with a 56 – 10 victory over the Kerikeri Slayers, Madison Kaka had a man of the match performance with a hat trick of tries from Dummy Half.  The Panthers must be quietly confident moving into the second half of the RLN Premiership with a good balance of youth and experience.

Next week’s matches of interest will see the Panther’s hosting the Kuaka, with a top 6 place up for grabs potentially for the Panthers.  The Bulls will be looking to take on a wounded Tigers when they host Moerewa.

Fun Family Day of Entertainment in Kaikohe – Swords v Counties ManukauFun Family Day of Entertainment in Kaikohe – Swords v Counties Manukau

Northern Advocate Advert - 5 Sep

The Northern Swords are team building for the future, with 15 players under the age of 22 in their squad they are looking to build the foundations of a successful team on and off the field.  With such a young team, Rugby League Northland are calling out to all Rugby League fans to come along and support the Swords Young Guns as they take on the Counties Manukau Stingrays this Saturday in Kaikohe.

As such Rugby League Northland is taking the Swords on the road to Kaikohe and have organised for a Junior North meets Junior South Mini/Mod Tournament as a curtain raiser to the main event.    Both events will take place on Central Rugby Ground to help create a festival atmosphere and it is FREE to attend.  Also adding the festive atmosphere will see the Junior Delegates running fundraising stalls to raise funds for the Northern Swords 15s and 17s to go to the NZRL Nationals.  So if you are coming along to the games bring along a few dollars to buy a feed and give a little donation.

“In the past the Swords have played to empty stadiums, for footy players there is nothing like playing in front of your Whanau and other supporters. By bringing the kids in, it will help bring in families as well and create a positive vibe.  The boys have a big challenge against one of the competition favourites, Counties Manukau Stingrays, but I’m sure with the League public’s support it will give them confidence” RLN General Manager Alex Smits said.

The Stingrays suffered a rare loss in round one against a resurgent Wai-Coa-Bays Stallions, while the Swords 38 – 4 loss to the Mid Central Vipers showed a lot of positive signs.  With an extra game under their belt, the Swords Young Guns and home ground advantage, the Swords will be looking to surprise the Stingrays.  For Eli George, Tamati Leach and Stevie Ray Haenga-Albert there will be extra motivation of playing at home in Kaikohe, all three had standout debuts last week.

Coach Jon Renes has the ability of adding Moerewa’s Anaru Thompson and Takahiwai’s experienced Ross McFarlane as wells as Muriwhenua’s Sonny Rupapera into this week’s mix. All three were unavailable last week due to work commitments.  However the final team will remain under wraps until after Thursday’s training.
