NZRL Monday Night Footy Results - Round 1

NZRL Monday Night Footy Results - Round 1

Despite an overcast day, those who were able to get along to Mt Smart Stadium were treated to a balmy evening and a wonderful first up round of Monday Day Night Rugby League.

The U85kg Secondary Schools match between Orewa and Whangaparoa Colleges was fast and exciting and made even more entertaining by their vocal supporters who cheered on every play.

In the final game of Round One of the Pirtek National Premiership the Counties Manukau Stingrays and Akarana Falcons were evenly matched and provided a quality game of senior rugby league.

A big thank you to everyone who took part.

Orewa College 40 v Whangaparaoa 8
Akarana Falcons 22 v Counties Manukau Stingrays 24

Next Monday the Counties Manukau Stingrays will host the Central Vipers (Hawkes Bay, Manawatu, Taranaki and Wanganui) who lost in Round One to the Wellington Orcas and will be hungry for their first win.
