fi­nal. De­lays caused the game to be played an hour and half late and the boys started slowly be­ing down at half time 14-0. They started to fire in the sec­ond half with two tries bring­ing the score to 14-10 but Raukawa came back to end the match with a win 22-10.

It was such a great game and Raukawa were so im­pressed with the Tigers that the team and all their sup­port­ers per­formed a haka to show their re­spect.

The Dan­nevirke Tigers Un­der 13s Tama team ended the tour­na­ment com­ing third over­all, which was a great achieve­ment for the boys, knock­ing off many of the big name teams. We had so much pos­i­tive feed­back from NZMRL and from many of the other teams.

This was the Un­der 13s sec­ond year at­tend­ing this Teina Tour­na­ment and it will be back again next year to com­pete, tak­ing an Un­der 13s and 14s team.

The Team placed third over­all but we also had two boys named in the NZMRL Un­der 13s Tama Team. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Kahn Ma­son and Josiah John­son.

This year from the two NZMRL Tour­na­ments we have at­tended, we have had six Dan­nevirke Tigers Play­ers mak­ing dif­fer­ent New Zealand Ma¯ ori Rugby League tour­na­ment teams.

From the Ran­gatahi Tour­na­ment held Queen’s Birth­day Week­end, Thomas Lilo made the Un­der 15s NZMRL Tama Team.

Paris Paul, Billy Jean Nolan and Mi­hingano all made the NZMRL Un­der 17s Kotiro Team.

NZMRL Tour­na­ment is a great path­way for those keen on the sport of Rugby League. The tour­na­ments are get­ting big­ger and big­ger ev­ery year.

The NZMRL Teina Tour­na­ment ended our rugby league sea­son for the Dan­nevirke Tigers Rugby League Club.
