Te Pa­papa shine at Waka tour­na­ment

Central Leader - - Sport -

Lo­cal rugby clubs had mixed for­tunes at the Waka Nathan Cup pre-sea­son tour­na­ment at Lloyd Elsmore Park on Satur­day.

It was a great start to the sea­son for Te Pa­papa-Mt Welling­ton who had a closely fought 26-19 win over Uni­ver­sity.

But Eden-Roskill didn’t be­gin their cam­paign the way they would have liked, go­ing down 57-3 to Teach­ers East­ern, which knocks them out of the com­pe­ti­tion.

This week­end’s Waka Nathan Cup fix­tures see Te Pa­papa-Mt Welling­ton take on Waitem­ata at Fer­gus­son Park and Pon­sonby kick off their sea­son against Teach­ers East­ern at a venue to be con­firmed.

Eden-Roskill, who are now in con­tention for the sec­ond-tier Pol­lard Cup be­cause of their loss, face Sub­urbs at Grib­ble­hirst Park.

All matches 2.45pm.
