Mt Albert Grammar School had a winning start in the Auckland Rugby League school premiership. MAGS beat Otahuhu 34-18 in the opening championship round on June 10. The team host defending champions Kelston Boys’ High School on June 17. Kelston showed their muscle in their 36-28 victory over Southern Cross Campus last week. Meanwhile Manurewa sprung the upset of the season by beating perennial heavyweights St Paul’s College 28-24. After a dominant first period which saw the southerners leading 22-0 at the break St Paul’s mounted a spirited comeback by outscoring their opponents 24 points to six, but fell short in the end. In the plate competition Western Springs College were beaten 18-8 by Aorere College. Western Springs are at home this afternoon when they play Papatoetoe High School.
