On Saturday, 27th August the North Harbour Rugby finals day was held at the North Harbour Domain. Rosmini College was well represented with four teams competing in the finals.
All games were very evenly contested and produced a high quality of rugby which is a compliment to the players and coaches involved.
Congratulations go to the 6A team who capped off an unbeaten season, defeating Westlake 17 - 7. The forwards produced a strong effort in the second half to seal the victory. The 4A team was also successful in defeating Rangitoto 5 -3 in a game which featured a fine team try and a very hectic finish.
Both other games could have gone either way, however, the 3rd XV lost to Orewa 8 - 7 and the 7As lost to Westlake 15 - 5.
A special mention and thanks to all the parents that gave up their time in coaching and managing all the teams that represented the school this season.
