Some interesting results from last weekends Fox Memorial round. Glenora were obviously dedicating their match to late club stalwart and Auckland Rugby League executive, George Rainey, who passed away last week. Last years Fox champions, Hibiscus Coast, went down to an improving Marist side in what was a very entertaining game.
In the Sharman Cup, favourites Manukau and Northcote both enjoyed convincing wins.
The big surprise in the Phelan Shield was Howick getting up over Bay Roskill.
