Central Leader - - Sport -

Lo­cal teams turned on dom­i­nant per­for­mances in the first round of the Fox Memo­rial club rugby league se­ries.

The Marist Saints mauled the East Coast Bays Bar­racu­das 5218, de­spite miss­ing seven kicks at goal.

The win also saw Marist suc­cess­fully de­fend the Roope Rooster for an­other week.

De­spite the wet, the Mt Al­bert Lions had a comfortable 44-12 win over the Te Atatu Roost­ers.

Cen­tral Auck­land sides in the sec­ond-tier Shar­man Cup com- pe­ti­tion can also be pleased with their ef­forts. Af­ter a hard fought start the Rich­mond Bull­dogs ran away with their match against the Bay Roskill Vik­ings 44-10.

And the Pon­sonby Ponies beat the Hi­bis­cus Coast Raiders 2410.
