PREVIEW: Plenty at stake as Hautapu Sports chase Waikato Rugby titles

posted in: News, Rugby

Hautapu Sports go into Saturday’s Waikato Rugby matches with the chance for all three of the club’s top men’s sides to keep alive their championship aspirations.

There’s plenty at stake as the teams go into their July 6 games:

  • The Premier A team can clinch a home semi-final with a win against University of Waikato, as they chase back-to-back wins in the Waikato Breweries Shield.
  • The Development squad can secure a semi-final in the Rowe Cup if they beat University of Waikato.
  • The Colts can reach the final of the Elliot Shield for the second year in a row if they beat Hamilton Old Boys at Memorial Park. A win earns them a home final.

Here are the squads for the three big games …
