Pt Chev Pi­rates face Lions in Fox fi­nal

Auckland City Harbour News - - SPORT - By BEN ROGERS

The Pt Che­va­lier Pi­rates have set up a re­peat of last year’s Fox Me­mo­rial fi­nal.

The Pi­rates will take on Mt Al­bert Lions this week­end af­ter beat­ing Pa­pakura Sea Ea­gles 56-14 in the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal.

Siua Otunuku ran over four tries in an awe­some dis­play of pace and power. In to­tal the Pi­rates ran over 10 tries to three which will give them some con­fi­dence head­ing into the grand fi­nal. Mt Al­bert have beaten the Pi­rates twice in the last three weeks.

The Lions will be look­ing to re­claim the Fox Me­mo­rial Tro­phy af­ter last year’s two­point loss to the Pi­rates in the fi­nal.

The Fox Me­mo­rial grand fi­nal is on Au­gust 30 at Trusts Sta­dium, Hen­der­son.
