Central Zones U55 7's Rugby

On Friday 31 October the U55kg Sevens team went to Waitemata Rugby Club in Henderson to take part in a combined Central and Western Zones competition run by Auckland Rugby.

The team had a great day and had some spectacular games.

Their first game was against Kelston intermediate where they battled out in a tough game. The team played structured 7s rugby and ultimately came away with a 22 - 14 win.

The next game was against ANI and oh my goodness what a game it was! The boys took the game out 44 - 0.

The third game was against Ponsonby Intermediate. They were looking strong throughout the day and even gave Kelston a whooping. In this game the boys dominated by winning 38 - 0.

The final game was against Glen Eden Intermediate. This was the final and the boys got outplayed in this one. They showed immense heart and never gave up during the game. Even when their lungs were burning. They ultimately lost the final 0 - 22.

They all played with immense heart and showed us what it meant to be RI students. Well done boys.

Team List: David Reeves, Omar Sadiku, Tom Worn, Dylan Peterson, Sang Woo Oh, Iveni Bilo, Boston Krone, Riley Leaver, Ritchie Akolo, Jack Hawkins, Hamish Chauval, Demetri Tuitavuki and Frazier Leasuasu.
