What an electric start to the NorthTec Adam Blair Trophy Competition. There’s an exciting vibe and buzz this year with the competition and it’s good to see the games were well supported and with the opportunity for the College players to play the Warriors Development Squad, on March 30th at Lindvart Park, Kaikohe.
Players will be looking to impress the Adam Blair XIII coaches of Joe Henare, Peter Gray (Kamo High School Coaches) and Benson Selwyn (Kaikohe Lions Premier Coach) before a trial match on March 17th at Simpson Park in Moerewa.
All first round games demonstrated a great level of league for the first game of the season. This first round saw a double-header played at Kamo High School for the Southern Round, while the two teams from Kaitaia have to travel south past the Maungamuka Gorge.
Here’s an action snap from the Bay of Islands vs Whangarei Boys High School. If you have action snaps from future rounds, send them in to email@example.com and we’ll post them up.
