Girls Rugby Term 2 Schedule.
The 2008 Eastern Zone Girls Rugby Competition is set for Tuesday 17th June – Week Seven, Term Two 2008.
Tamaki Intermediate will be fielding two teams in competition at under 55kg and Open Grade level.
In a change to previous years this year the Girls are required to wear boots. Mouthguards are compulsory. If you don’t have one the can be purchased from the School Office for three dollars.
The Open Grade Girls Rugby from Tamaki Intermediate have a proud tradition undefeated at this competition since June 2000. Since then the team have won consecutive finals against Remuera Intermediate in 2003 (5-0), Stanhope Road in 2004 (30-0) Howick Intermediate in 2005 (32-0), Bailey Road School in 2006 (17-0) and Howick Intermediate in 2007 (25-0). The pinnacle of our Girls success was the 2004 team (pictured) who were 2004 Auckland Champions.
The Under 55kg have adjusted from a weight limit change last year (where the competition experimented at Under 50kg). They were runners up to a strong Bucklands Beach Intermediate School team, and will be looking to add to school wins in the tournament in 2004/5/6.
Our teams build up will start in week two when the Girls Open Grade team travels to Howick Intermediate School. This game will take place on Tuesday 13th May at Howick Intermediate, we will have full footage of this game and every other game right here at tamakitoday.blogspot.com!
The draw for the Barbarians Rugby Competition has been released this 12 a side friendly competition has Tamaki Intermediate hosting Sir Edmund Hillary Middle School in Round 1, a date for which that still has to be set. We also have away games against St Pius X School and Kedgley Intermediate. All information for these games will be posted as soon as it becomes available. Be sure to stay tuned for updates!
