A stunning result today for East Coast Bays when the Barracudas beat the Mangere East Hawks by sixteen points to ten. The win maintains last years Phelan Shield winners on fifth spot on the Mad Butcher Fox Memorial table. The under performing Richmond Bulldogs managed a win over the Te Atatu Roosters, Papakura cruised to a big win over the hapless Otahuhu Leopards and the Mt Albert Lions grabbed a win with an eight point margin over the Manurewa Marlins.
In Sharman Cup action, the Ponsonby Ponies win over the Manukau Magpies propels them into second place. The Howick Hornets move to first place, courtesy of their narrow win over the Otara Scorpions.
