The opening round of the Cook Islands Touch Association open and mixed divisions weekly competition saw some interesting matches last week.

Cook Islands Touch will host round two of their weekly competition with open men’s and women’s games at The Swamp in Avatiu this afternoon.

The association had an exciting start with open grade matches last Monday, featuring eight women and six men’s teams.

Unfortunately, Palmerston have had to pull out of the competition due to not having the numbers to make up a full team, leaving the women’s open division with seven teams.

However the association remains upbeat and anticipates tough and intense competition in this division.

In the men’s round one competition, top bets GAT and Team ATT got off to winning starts. Team ATT beat Nukz Power 6-2 while GAT overcame Evolution 9-5.

In the women’s open division, FBI beat Palmerston 7-0, Nukz Power overcame Bounty Hunters 6-3 while Evolution defeated Team ATT 5-1. Nikz recorded a win by default over Mangaia.
