Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

If Porirua Vik­ings make Welling­ton club rugby league’s grand fi­nal in Au­gust, they will run out on West­pac Sta­dium.

Welling­ton Rugby League con­firmed last week the grand fi­nal would be a cur­tain­raiser to the New Zealand War­riors v St Ge­orge NRL fix­ture on Au­gust 8.

It will be the first of three games that day, fol­lowed by the Holden Cup match be­tween the NRL clubs’ un­der-20 sides, then the big match.

Welling­ton Rugby League gen­eral manager Ja­son Hem­son said it was an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity for the pre­mier play­ers and sup­port­ers to be part of a big day at West­pac Sta­dium.

‘‘We’ve been work­ing with Shane [Har­mon] at the sta­dium and Jim [Doyle] and his team at the War­riors to lock this down and it is fan­tas­tic that we can now pro­ceed with the plan­ning of the day,’’ he said.

Kick­off times on Au­gust 8 are to be con­firmed.
