Auckland 2019 School Rugby 1A 1st XV competition

Saint Kentigern has asked College Sport Auckland to lead an arbitration process in ensuring a successful 2019 School Rugby 1A 1st XV competition, David Hodge, Head of Saint Kentigern said today.

“We support a successful school rugby culture and we are delighted College Sport Auckland has confirmed it is ready to act in this role so that we can all look forward to a successful and enjoyable season,” he said.

Mr Hodge said Saint Kentigern remains fully committed to participating with one set of rules applying equally to all teams.

“We follow the rules that were agreed and set by College Sport Auckland, and would have expected the most recent issue to have been raised before school enrolments had closed for 2019.”

He said the College would go into arbitration in a spirit of wanting to resolve all issues, while at the same time needing to honour commitments that had already been entered into in good faith some time ago with five boys and their families, who had also made a commitment to coming to the College.

“We look forward to resolving this matter and to a successful and rewarding season for all teams,” he said.
