Roxz rumble with Warriors at the swamp

Monday 15 February 2010 | Published in Regional


The Avatiu swamp is again the place to be this afternoon for the open men’s and women’s touch rugby competition.

The competition continues to produce some excellent touch rugby matches and with impressive defences across the board – the team that works together to move the ball around quickly and stretch their opponent will no doubt emerge as the winners at the end of the day.

The ever impressive Roxz team of male prisoners will face the Warriors today while the northern group Rama team will face the Germinators who were nearly beaten by the Roxz team last week with their game ending in a draw.

The Avatiu League Boys will face the highly fancied Vikings team in what should be a very entertaining match.

Meanwhile in the women’s competition, the Bounty Hunters will face the young and fit FBI squad while the Devil Slayers will tango with the northern group women’s Rama team.

The TSL Rookies will have their work cut out for them as they will face the fancy Vixens side.

But the unpredictable Rookies can never be underestimated.Games start at 5pm today.

Touch rugby draw: 5pm on field one Warriors vs Roxz (M), 5pm on field two Rama vs Germinators (M), 5.35pm on field one Bounty Hunters vs FBI (W), 5.35pm on field two Vikings vs Avatiu League Boys (M), 6.10pm on field one TSL Rookies vs Vixens (W), 6.10pm on field two Devil Slayers vs Rama (W).
