Warriors play Panthers

Saturday 16 April 2011 | Published in Regional


With two premier league games player yesterday – the only premier game on today is between the Takuvaine Warriors and the Tupapa Panthers.

This game will be played at the BCI Stadium where the Warriors need to bring their A game as Tupapa seem to have found their form in what has been a slow season for the Panthers.

The Warriors have been battling valiantly in the club’s first season of fielding a premier team in some years.

The match is sure to be a thriller with games between the two clubs starting at 1pm between the under 16 grade with the premier grade to kick off at 4.30pm.

Meanwhile at the swamp, the baby Avatiu Eels will host the Ngatangiia Sea Eagles with under 13 grades at 12.30pm and the senior reserve grade match kicking off at 4.30pm.
