Eels vs Panthers game of the week

Saturday 19 March 2011 | Published in Regional


Head to the Avatiu Swamp and Nukupure Park for today’s rugby league action.

At the Swamp, the Eels will host neighbours the Tupapa Panthers in what should be the match of the week.

On home ground the Eels are tough to defeat but the Panthers will have a few tricks up their sleeves to combat the slippery Eels.

At Nukupure Park in Ngatangiia – the Sea Eagles will rumble with the Takuvaine Warriors from Happy Valley.

The Sea Eagles have been tough customers this season and the Warriors will need to have spears sharpened if they are to upset the soaring Eagles.

Games at both venues start at 1pm with the under 16 grade.
