18 May: Norths Colts beat Ories

Northern United beat Oriental-Rongotai 36-32 in a lively Friday night Les Mills Colts Division 1 clash at Te Whaea. Norths outscored Ories 3 tries to 2 in establishing a 17-15 halftime lead. Ories had the first of two players sent to the sin-bin just before the break, these two yellow cards proving costly. Playing into the wind, Ories scored their second try to take a 22-17 lead, Norths scored their bonus point try to go ahead 24-22, Ories kicked a penalty to go ahead 25-24, but Norths scored consecutive tries to move ahead 36-25. Ories deserved their try at the end that gave them 2 bonus points from the defeat.

11 May: Stokes Valley junior receives England call-up

England have called up former  Stokes Valley Junior Rugby Club and  Hurricanes captain Brad Shields for their tour of South Africa after New Zealand Rugby (NZR) released him from his contract. NZR said there were "clear legal grounds" to oppose Shields' request, but allowed it "by special exception". "Brad has been an exceptional leader inside the Hurricanes and a loyal servant to New Zealand Rugby," it said. England head coach Eddie Jones sees the 27-year-old flanker as part of his plans up to next year's World Cup. New Zealand-born Shields, who qualifies for England through his parents, will join Wasps later this year. Read more here
