MY story starts with a good old fashioned abandoned warehouse. My mate and I were mucking around with a footy at an adjoining park.

What I saw that day will stay with me forever.

SUPERB defence and a willing attitude to not back down except at the very start and at the very end resulted in the New Zealand Universities side beating Australia 17-8 to win the Student Rugby League Cup final at Langlands Park in Brisbane on Saturday afternoon.
RESULTS in from yesterday's 2 games in New Zealand's Bartercard Cup competition result in a new leader with last year's champions Mt Albert Lions defeating the former leaders, North Harbour Tigers to head the table.
