Teams in top spots

Auckland City Harbour News - - SPORT -

The Mt Al­bert Lions and Pt Che­va­lier Pi­rates are sit­ting at first and sec­ond place re­spec­tively on rugby league’s Ap­pli­ance Shed Fox Memo­rial Shield ta­ble af­ter round 13 of the com­pe­ti­tion.

The Roope Rooster clash was al­ways go­ing to be one of the ti­tans of the round and the fact that the weather left the grounds a lit­tle soggy was to be the telling of both sides.

This game was def­i­nitely not one to dis­ap­point with a half­time score of 12–10 to Mt Al­bert not enough to hold on to the Roope with 40 min­utes re­main­ing.

The bat­tle con­tin­ued and the Pi­rates did not lay down with their try scor­ers com­ing from Gary Fuimaono, Ian Hayes, Gary Saifoloi, Ar­den McCarthy, Patrick Si­p­ley and Jonathan Carl con­ver­sions. But in the end Mt Al­bert took the win and re­tain the Kon­ica Mi­nolta Roope Rooster for another round.
