South Waikato News - - NEWS -

TI­TLE DE­FENCE: Strath­more School’s Rippa rugby team will de­fend their Waikato ti­tle to­day at Flagstaff Park in Hamil­ton. The team moved through to the Waikato-wide com­pe­ti­tion af­ter win­ning the lo­cal derby against St Mary’s Catholic School 8-4.

Prin­ci­pal Mur­ray Ken­drick hopes for the team to per­form well.

‘‘Hope­fully they will be top seeds. They should do well as they have been well pre­pared and sev­eral have been in the tour­na­ment be­fore.

‘‘It sounds like there are four pools of five teams. Each team was a fi­nal­ist in their re­spec­tive qual­i­fy­ing tour­na­ment,’’ he said.
