Bulldogs face Eels

Thursday 7 April 2011 | Published in Regional


Titikaveka field is where all the rugby league action will be today when the Bulldogs host the Avatiu Eels.

The first game of the day is at 4pm between the clubs’ under 19 grades followed by the reserve grade at 5pm.

On Friday the under 16 grade will open up the day’s games at Titikaveka field followed by what should be a fantastic rumble between the Avatiu Eels premier grade and the Bulldogs.

Also on Friday, the visiting Aitutaki Sharks will play the Takuvaine Warriors at the Avatiu field starting at 5pm and this will also be another great game.

At Ngatangiia on Saturday – the Sea Eagles will host the Warriors junior grade while the Sea Eagles premier grade take a well earned brake with a bye.

Victoria Park in Tupapa will no doubt attract a capacity crowd with the Arorangi Bears to take on the Tupapa Panthers in all grades from the under 13 at 1pm right up to the premier grade at 5pm.
