Lions eye the Fox in unbeaten run
The Mt Albert Lions will be looking to continue their unbeaten run in club rugby league’s Fox Memorial qualifying series tomorrow.
Section A leaders Mt Albert face a tough challenge against the second-placed Papakura Sea Eagles at Prince Edward Park.
But they’ve shown they have what it takes to win tight matches, defeating the Northcote Tigers 20-18 last weekend despite conceding a last-minute try.
Meanwhile the Marist Saints overcame the Mangere East Hawks 34-4, while the Richmond Bulldogs defeated the Howick Hornets 20-8 and the Bay Roskill Vikings were thrashed 68-0 by Papakura.
In section B the Ponsonby Ponies were defeated 50-24 by the Glenora Bears.
Tomorrow Ponsonby take on East Coast Bays at Freyburg Park, Richmond clash with Northcote at Birkenhead War Memorial, Marist visit Howick at Paparoa Park and Bay Roskill play Mangere East at Walter Massey Park.
