Li­ons on a roll

Central Leader - - SPORT -

The Mt Al­bert Li­ons are look­ing to hold on to their slim lead at the top of the Fox Me­mo­rial Premier­ship. Round nine of Auck­land’s pre­mier rugby league com­pe­ti­tion sees the Li­ons host­ing the How­ick Hor­nets at Fowlds Park to­mor­row. Mt Al­bert have once again proved tough to stop af­ter their 76-0 win over Otara on June 6. De­fend­ing premiers Pt Che­va­lier Pi­rates share 14 com­pe­ti­tion points with Mt Al­bert, putting them in sec­ond place as they head south to play Otara. It should be oneway traf­fic, as the Pi­rates proved too strong for the Glenora Bears 74-14 last week­end. The Marist Saints are still hang­ing in there for top four con­tention af­ter their 34-20 win over the North­cote Tigers in round eight. A win to­mor­row against the Otahuhu Leop­ards will keep the Saints in touch with fourth place. All matches kick off at 2.30pm.
