Five Tamaki Intermediate Girls Open Grade Rugby players were fortunate enough to be selected to be in the South-East Auckland Girls Open Grade Representative Team.
On Saturday 11 September 2010 four of us met Miss Samson and Mo at Tamaki Intermediate at 9:00am. We loaded ourselves into Miss Samson's car and then we were all off to Royal Oak Intermediate to challenge the West Auckland Girls Open Grade Rep. Team. (It was just as well that we left early because we got lost on the way.)
We were all eager to play because its been a long time since we've played.
When we arrived both teams went into the hall at Royal Oak. Shawnee (sorry if it's spelt wrong) instructed us what to do, we were given our uniforms and then we went to put them on.
After 15 minutes of hair braiding we went out onto the field. Our coach Craig met us there and started to warm us up for the game.
The game was fast and furious and after 40 minutes neither team scored. We went into over time. Tensions were high because both teams really wanted to win. Within 10 minutes of the over time East scored and converted first. With only 2 minutes to go West scored but luckily for us they did not convert their try.
