Auckland Interclub A Grade Round 2

On Sunday 12 May the second round of the A Grade Auckland interclub was played at Stables Café, Alexandra Park. In past years Papatoetoe have generally made up the numbers with Bob Gibbons (and others in the past) our only true A Grader. This year with Stan Yee, Ian McNally, Phillip Mukkattu and Hilton Bennett coming all the way from Hamilton to help, gives us a reasonable team (thanks Hilton).

Despite a still large gap in our ratings we are very pleased to achieve 2 points with Phillip’s fantastic win and two great draws by Stanley and Ian.
