De­spite a 10-10 score­line at half­time, Mt Al­bert man­aged to sneak in front of the Tigers helped by two tries from Fe­tongi Tuin­au­vai.

Mean­while, com­pe­ti­tion leaders Otahuhu Leop­ards thrashed the Marist Saints 51-8.

In the sec­ond-tier Shar­man Cup, the Rich­mond Bull­dogs squeaked past the Pon­sonby Ponies 34-30, while the Bay Roskill Vik­ings went down to the How­ick Hor­nets 14-6.
