On Wednesday 17 August Tauranga Intermediate entered 2 teams into the local WBOP Coastline Rugby League tournament held at Waipuna Park. Teams played a round robin format. Tauranga Blue won all their matches and went straight to the final. Tauranga Gold lost a pool match forcing them to play a semi-final against Te Whare Kura O Mauao. Gold fought back to win by 1 try in the dying minutes setting up a final against our Blue Team.
Even though these boys are all mates at school, on the field it was a different story with lots of big hits and competitive banter, similar to a State of Origin game. In the end Blue were too strong for Gold winning 7 tries to 4.
Players of the Day went to Luke Cairns Nelson Rm 41 Blue team and Hamiora Bennett Rm 12 Gold Team.
