AUCK­LAND GRAM­MAR V KING’S

SAT UR­DAY, JUNE 13

NZ Rugby World - First XV - - AUCKLAND 1A -

Since 1896 these two schools have done rugby bat­tle 201 times, and ha­bit­u­ally draw crowds in ex­cess of 7000-8000. Why? There are strong old boys’ net­works and the clash it­self al­ways car­ries an edge, no mat­ter the po­si­tion on the ta­ble. The TV cam­eras love this game, as both schools will per­form hakas and the at­mos­phere ramps up.
