WBHS with Shaun Johnson

Whangarei Boys High School as NorthTec Adam Blair winners, have been representing Northland at the Secondary School Nationals. Dealt a huge blow before the tournament began, with Caleb Aekins ruled out injured.

However the boys should be proud of the they way they played all week. In a pool against Westlake Boys they were leading 10-0 at half time before they ended up losing 20-10. Against 2013 finalists Otahuhu, they were again leading at half time before Otahuhu’s huge pack snatched the game away with two late tries to win 18-6.  Then they narrowly lost to Aorere 16 – 4.  Which placed them against Papatoetoe in the cross over game for placings where they lost in a golden point thriller 11 – 10.  It was almost as if Boys High couldn’t win a trick.  Their final was in a playoff for 15th and 16th where they faced Rosehill College and all the week’s near losses came to a head and Boys High pulled out a can of kick but handing Rosehill a 56 – 0 thrashing.

The week long tournament is a highlight on the NZRL Sporting Calendar and it is considered one of Secondary Schools best tournaments.  Along the way Boys High rubbed shoulders with Shaun Johnson and will be appearing on Code on Maori TV next week.

On another positive note three RLN Referees also attended the tournament fine tuning their whistle skills.  They were Tane Kaiwai, Taylor Waenga and Nick Waihi.

It will come down to this weekend’s matches to determine who will take the fourth spot on the RLN Scott Electrical Premiership table recently vacated by Hokianga Pioneers.  The Northern Wairoa Bulls and Portland Panthers currently sit two points adrift of each other, Portland ahead by two points, and both teams are playing two of the top teams this weekend.

If the Northern Wairoa Bulls can pull off a convincing win against their opposition, Otangarei Knights and Moerewa topple Portland, points differential will come into play. Both the Bulls and Portland have a guaranteed two points with Portland with the Bye and the Bulls scheduled to play against the withdrawn Hokianga Pioneers.  However, if the Bulls lose, they will certainly be out of finals contention and can start planning for a 2017 challenge.  The Bulls are going to have to throw everything they have at Otangarei in the hopes of upsetting them on their home ground.

The top three placings are cemented with Takahiwai sitting on 22 points one ahead of Moerewa on 21, whilst  Otangarei have accumulated 17 points.  Portland, who are currently fourth have 12 points.  This sets up the final round, where the Minor Premiership will definitely be decided when the top of the table clash will see Takahiwai take on Moerewa in what could be the precursor to the Grand Final.

Upcoming fixtures in the RLN Scott Electrical Premiership:

Round 13 – 2nd July

Otangarei Knight v NW Bulls at Fishbone Park – 2.30pm

Moerewa Tigers v Portland Panthers at Simpson Park – 2.30pm

Round 14 – 9th July

Horahora Broncos v Otangarei knights at Horahora RFC – 2.30pm

Takahiwai Warriors v Moerewa Tigers at Takahiwai RLC – 2.30pm


Announcing RLN Multikai Cooker PremiershipAnnouncing RLN Multikai Cooker Premiership

As the Northland Senior League season is just around the corner, Rugby League Northland has received a major boost with the securing of MulitKai Cookers as a naming rights sponsor for the RLN Premiership.  From this point forward the RLN Premiership will be known as the RLN Multikai Cooker Premiership.

“I have seen the growth in profile of Rugby League in Northland over the last three years and as a keen Leaguie I wanted to be able to help make a difference.” said Doug Andrews, Director of MultiKai Cookers.  Doug originally from Canterbury, first started his league interests with the Lindwood Keas and went on to represent Canterbury U21s before a move to Northland in 1987 where he linked up the Portland Panthers.  Doug is a well known personality around the Masters scene having represented the Kiwi Masters.

“I’m excited about being to help RLN grow their profile – but at the same time I hope that this sponsorship can help grow my business as well.  I see this partnership as a good way of assisting Rugby League Clubs across New Zealand raise funds.  The Mulitkai Cooker is a great investment and I have witnessed several clubs raise some significant funds through Hangis!” Doug went on to say.

Alex Smits, General Manager RLN, is really excited about the new partnership.  “To bring on a nationally recognised brand is an awesome reward for the hard work that the Rugby League Northland community have put in over the last three years.  Not only are we attracting some good sponsors but we are attracting sponsors who are willing to put their name on our competitions which goes to show that the business community is taking an interest in what we are doing.”  From a product perspective RLN uses the MultiKai Cookers to feed all of their representative teams after games as it’s a low cost and easy solution for feeding masses.

The RLN MultiKai Cooker Premiership kicks of March the 29th with a 10 team competition.  Otaua Valleys have withdrawn to concentrate on their juniors.  Teams competing in 2014 will be:  Muriwhenua Kuaka, Hokianga Pioneers, Kerikeri Rugby League, Moerewa Tigers, Hikurangi Stags, Otangarei Knights, Horahora Broncos, Portland Panthers, Takahiwai Warriors and the Northern Wairoa Bulls.  The Hikurangi Stags are the 2011, 2012 and 2013 defending champions.

A Final Draw will be released early next week.
