Their Papakura Sea
Eagles have qualified for
the Fox Memorial Tro-

They secured their
spot in the premiership
round with a hard-fought
22-18 win over Glenora
at Prince Edward Park

the pool on eight points,
two clear of the Roosters
who have the better for
and against record.
The Leopards' final
outing in the qualifying
series is against the
Bears at Harold Moody
Park in Glen Eden on
The Leopards will
qualify if they win. But a
loss combined with a
Roosters win over the
Sea Eagles could see the
playing second division
in two weeks' time.

Hawks scored their first
win of the qualifying
series last Saturday
beating East Coast Bays
They are destined for
the second division along

Pirates whom they play
