Chiefs zone expands
The inclusion of Rosehill College,
Manurewa High School, Wesley
College and Pukekohe High School
in a new regional championship for
secondary schools in the
catchment zone of the Chiefs has
been given the thumbs up by the
Counties Manukau Rugby Union.
The union's chief executive Andrew
Maddock says the new competition
will raise the standard of schoolboy
rugby in the province and give
players the opportunity to catch the
eye of the Chiefs scouts.
''It's exciting,'' Maddock says.
''It gives players the opportunity to
play at a consistently high level.
''Schools in Counties Manukau
don't have the number of teams or
the quality of competition that
Auckland schools have. This will fill
the void. The new competition is
also a chance for our best young
players to be seen at a Chiefs
Manurewa High School and Wesley
College will play in the top grade
while Rosehill College and
Pukekohe High School will play in
the second division.

his neck in a collision with City
goalkeeper Kevin Billot.
The match was abandoned in the
74th minute as players and officials

Abbott had just scored his second
goal when the accident happened.
Cody was playing his first game for
Waiuku since transferring from

They have one of the bigger
packs in the competition and it's
the key to their game,'' Hills
We must tame their forward
pack if we are to be successful.
The loose forward battle will be

Sea Eagles seek back-to-back win
By ALAN APTED
The Papakura Sea Eagles go in
search of the first back-to-back win
of their Fox Memorial Trophy cam-
paign when they take on the Marist
Saints at Murray Halberg Park in
Mt Albert this Saturday.
Coach Darin Smith is thrilled his
Sea Eagles upset the previously
unbeaten Otahuhu Leopards 40-20
at Prince Edward Park in Papa-
kura last Saturday
But he warns his players against
reading too much into the result
and taking the winless Saints for
Marist are due for a win,'' he
says. They're not a side to be
underestimated. They've had some
close games and will be playing
above themselves at home.
We've got to make sure we com-
plete our sets, make our tackles
count and stay focused for the full

Sea Eagles lapse in and out of

second half and were fortunate the

we must eliminate. We did the

double and added to the tries
scored by Honeti Tuha, Toshio
Laiseni, Trent Bishop and Charlie
The Leopards will be looking to
bounce back against the Glenora
Bears at Bert Henham Park in
Otahuhu on Saturday.
The Manurewa Marlins will be
the underdogs when they host
Stacey Jones' Pt Chevalier Pirates
at Mountfort Park in Manurewa on
Saturday. The Marlins are coming
off a 36-12 loss to the Howick
Hornets in Howick last Saturday.
The Mangere East Hawks are
shaping up as the team to beat in
the Sharman Cup. Their 76-12 win
over the Richmond Bulldogs was
their third win in four games and
has them jointly leading the Shar-
man with the Glenfield Grey-
hounds and the Otara Scorpions.
They're away to the Te Atatu
Roosters on Saturday.
The Scorpions, who are away to
the New Lynn Stags on Saturday
also had a win, beating the
