SAS College Rugby League to kick off next week

Twenty three schools from across Auckland will be in action when the 2019 SAS College Rugby League season kicks off next week.

The boys' 1st XIII Premiership, Senior A and U15 9s competitions will start on Wednesday, with the Girls' 9s getting underway on Thursday.

Defending Auckland and national champions Kelston Boys' High School open their campaign against Westlake.

Auckland Rugby League football development officer Mary Passi highlighted changes to the premier grade and increased interest in the girls' competition.

“It's exciting to have the college competitions back in action," Passi said.

"This year a new 1st XIII Premiership format has been introduced, which will see 10 teams compete this year and drop to eight in 2020, all with the aim of a more competitive series.

“I’m loving the interest in the girls’ competition as well. We have 10 teams competing this year and we’re hoping to continue to build on this."
