The Cook Islands Touch weekly competition will today continue in the men’s and women’s opens category.

Play offs in the mixed division looks to be exciting. 

Not making the top four were teams Nukz Power and the Young Warriors.   

Hard luck to these two teams.

Winners will go through while losers will have to take it by the chin and hang their boots.

Taking top of the table was team Outlaws lead by Puna Hiro and they will play against fourth team, the young Mighty Arrows, all who consist of 18s players. 

Mighty Arrows is led by Oscar Wichman and Mahana Sijp. 

This should be a good game to watch.

Second on the table is team 007 lead by Andy Kapi while third is team Jaise Squad led by Viiga Mataroa. 

Another good game to be had with both teams having speed and flare.
