A close game was seen at Titikaveka on Wednesday when the Avatiu Eels headed out to take on the Titikaveka Bulls for their catch up game on Wednesday.

It was a tight match for both sides with the Eels managing to keep the Bulls at bay to win the match 32-25.

The other catch-up game played between these two clubs was in the under 19 grade where the Eels dominated the Bulls to win 27-10.

The under 13 and under 16 grade clash between the two clubs played out at the Titikaveka field yesterday afternoon.

Looking ahead to the 4th week of games starting today the Titikaveka Bulls senior B grade will take on neighbours the Ngatangiia-Matavera Dragons.

On Saturday the remaining grades from the two clubs will rumble at Nukupure Park.

The Avatiu Eels will play the Takuvaine Reds at the Avatiu field while this weeks CITC game of the week will be between the Tupapa Panthers and the Arorangi Cowboys.

While the main match tag is reserved for the senior A grade game between these two clubs, both the Panthers and Cowboys are in development focused clubs so there will be some very skilled and entertaining age grade games in the under 13, under 16 and under 19 grades played.
