Auckland Rugby League Action

A stunning result today for East Coast Bays when the Barracudas beat the Mangere East Hawks by sixteen points to ten. The win maintains last years Phelan Shield winners on fifth spot on the Mad Butcher Fox Memorial table. The under performing Richmond Bulldogs managed a win over the Te Atatu Roosters, Papakura cruised to a big win over the hapless Otahuhu Leopards and the Mt Albert Lions grabbed a win with an eight point margin over the Manurewa Marlins.

Toulouse Take Centre Stage

FOR Toulouse Olympic coach Justin Morgan, the 2004/05 French Elite season has been a solid and mostly successful campaign, but one they've largely spent in the shadows. Despite sitting in second place on the ladder, his team of part timers has predictably been forced to play second fiddle to Super League bound UTC - both on the field and off it. The two sides have met four times this year (three times in the Elite and once in the Lord Derby Cup), and on each occasion the Catalans have come away with the points. In fact, Steve Deakin's men are undefeated this season - a draw with reigning champions, St Gaudens the only time they've failed to grab maximum points all year. UTC, or "Les Catalan Dragons" as they're to be known from next season, have been grabbing all the headlines off the field as well with their high profile Chairman Bernard Guasch embarking on a global recruitment campaign in a bid to ensure his club can mix it with the best that the English game has to offer. So, for Morgan and his troupe of art-timers, this Sunday's Challenge Cup home Quarter Final clash with Widnes represents the perfect opportunity to make some headlines of their own. A win over a full-time proffessional Super League outfit, no matter where they sit on the ladder, would be a huge coup for the club and the French game in general, but just how realistic are their chances? According to Morgan, it's anything but mission impossible. "We're confident we can win the game. We're certainly not going in there thinking we're happy to make the quarter-finals. Obviously we're going to be underdogs, but, playing at home, playing in the heat, travelling away for Widnes, we've got a few factors that are pointing in our direction. We're just hoping to put in a good performance to make people understand that French rugby league is certainly progressing".
