ARL Premiership previews

ARL Premiership previews

For Immediate Release

The top four teams all face off in a weekend that is sure to reveal plenty about the real contenders for this year’s Appliance Shed Fox Memorial Premiership title.

Fourth-placed Howick host the table-topping Pt Chevalier Pirates, after losing their first match of 2014 last week, going down 32-16 to Mt Albert.

Mt Albert themselves travel to take on Papakura, who sit one spot behind them in third place, with a 4-1 record after the opening month of competition play.

If the Hornets and Sea Eagles can spring upset victories this weekend the Fox table will have four teams all sitting on ten points heading into round seven, all sharing the competition lead.

The Auckland Rugby League Match of the Round sees the resurgent Marist Saints take on the Otahuhu Leopards at Murray Halberg Park. The battle of the centres promises to be a good one in this game, with former Samoan international Tangi Ropati, and exciting youngster Josh Tamaseu-Russell, taking on talented Otahuhu pair Atelea Nafetalai and Christian Mika.

Richmond will once again go searching for their first points of the season when they travel to Glenora, while Northcote and Mangere East go to battle at Birkenhead War Memorial.

Greens: Russel Norman To Stand Down As Co-Leader

Green Party Co-leader Dr Russel Norman has announced today that he will stand down as leader at the party’s Annual General Meeting in May. Dr Norman will remain as Co-leader and retain his finance and climate change portfolios until the AGM.

“After nearly a decade as Co-leader, now is a good time to find a new challenge for myself, and to spend more time with my family” said Dr Norman.

“This is my ninth year as Co-leader and I think it’s time for a change. Now is a good time for new leadership for the Party. My replacement will start from a strengthened base and will have a full parliamentary term to establish himself in the role and take the Greens into government in 2017." More>>
