Tamaki Int. - Barbarians Rugby Update

Just in today... footage available tomorrow... our Boys bowed out of the Barbarians Rugby 12 a side Knock Out Rugby being defeated by an awesome Kedgley Intermediate School... the score was 70 nil! Our Girls also exited the competition, but in much more dramatic fashion. In appalling conditions the score at halftime was 10-10 with Kedgleys two ties matched by tries from Seneti and Lucy. The second half the teams still couldn't be separated with a try to Kedgley matched by Tamaki's Captain Meliame who scored with five minutes remaining and Lasini converted. This meant the game had to go into sudden death overtime! In torrid conditions Kedgley took advantage first scoring after applying quick pressure. Tamaki Girls were disappointed to go out of the competition at this point, in such close circumstances, but still have Auckland Girls Rugby Interzone Finals and Auckland Girls League Finals to come this term.

Our Basketball Girls finished their Thursday night League with a 3rd/4th play off game against the 2008 Eastern Zone Champions Bucklands Beach Intermediate (BBI). Tamaki started in awesome form taking a 26-17 lead into the break. In the second half of a forty minute game BBI showed their class eventually winning 38-34. Tamaki's Girls again showed huge improvement on their early season form, Lasini bagged 14 points, Patricia scored 10 and Meliame and Maggie scored 5 each. All eyes are fimly now on the 2008 NZ AIMS tournament when the Girls will do battle against the top New Zealand teams.... two years of planning is now only two short weeks away!!!
