On Monday 22nd September the Girls Rugby Interzone Finals took place at Point England Reserve. This involved the top four Girls teams from Auckland the Champions of each of the different Zones. Tamaki Intermediate were there as Eastern Zone Champions. We were up against Viscount School, the Southern Zone Champions in the third pool match. Viscount were the Runners Up in Auckland for 2007 when they defeated Tamaki in the still much talked about Semi-Finals in sudden death extra time match (before losing to Henderson in the finals).
In this match Tamaki were desperate to claim a win against Viscount to qualify them for the finals. Having lost to Randwick Park and beaten Mt Roskill it was a do or die game. Tamaki took the lead early in the match before Viscount scored just before half time to even the game. In the second half Viscount showed their class that would see them eventually win the final as they defeated Tamaki 7-28.
This game is the final in the highlights series of Rugby games for 2008. Filmed by Gaifo and Meliame at Point England Reserve on Monday 22nd September.
