Premiership finalists set for Saturday triple-header

Premiership finalists set for Saturday triple-header

The Mt Albert Lions and Pt Chevalier Pirates will face off in their third-consecutive Appliance Shed Fox Memorial Premiership grand final this Saturday at Mt Smart Stadium #2.

With the Lions having already booked their spot in the decider with a victory in the August 22 qualifying final, Pt Chevalier disposed of Papakura 22-0 last Saturday to put themselves in the position to win a third-straight title.

The game will be broadcast live on Maori Television from 3.00pm on Saturday, while tickets to the clash are just $10 for adults and $2 for people under the age of 15.

In the day's earlier games Te Atatu will face off with Richmond for the SAS Sharman Cup title, and promotion to the Fox for 2016, while the Papakura and Manurewa ladies do battle for the Women's Premiership.

The Sharman Cup game will be played at 11.30am, and broadcast at 3.30pm on Sunday.

The Women's Premiership final sees the competition's two best sides through the regular season clash, in what is a repeat of last year's decider.

That game kicks off at 1.20pm.
