Secondary Schools Rugby League Tournament Semi Final Places

National Secondary Schools Rugby League Tournament Semi Final Places Decided

Auckland, New Zealand August 24, 2011 - Day three of the National Secondary Schools Rugby League tournament featured a hard fought opening game between Tokoroa High School and Tangaroa College.

Played on field one in front of a large crowd, Tokoroa got off to a flying start, with NZ Residents 18s player Axl Kingi (Waicoa Bays) scoring a converted try and a penalty to take his team into the lead.

The game then settled into an end to end battle, before Tangaroa scored back to back tries and kicked a conversion to take the score to 10 – 8 at half time.

After the break, Tangaroa scored a converted try, taking them to 16 – 8 in front and quickly followed this with another try which came from an excellent break, a chip and chase and re-gather and quick pass to score in the corner.

With the score out to 20 – 8 it appeared unlikely that Tokoroa could come back, but they dug deep and were rewarded with a converted try and drew level with a penalty kick right on full time. The final score was 20 all and Tokoroa as the top finisher in the pool will go through to the Championship semi final rounds. For full details of the semi final match ups see below.
