Feilding High School, the defending champions will play Southland Girls’ High in tomorrow’s Final of the Girls’ Top 4 at Arena Manawatu in Palmerston North.

Southland Girls’ High beat Tamaki College 32-20 in the first semi Final yesterday after leading 15-10 at halftime. The game was a free flowing game in which 10 tries were scored. Southland Girls’ although a lot smaller than their Auckland opponents deserved the win and led throughout the game .The result was a great result for the 18 parents who had travelled with the team.

The other semi - final was a classic game of rugby between the defending champions Feilding High and  Hamilton Girls’ High team who had been unbeaten all season and who had defeated Feilding High 22-10 earlier in the season breaking their 26 month unbeaten record.

Feilding High started brilliantly and kicked 2 penalties and scored a converted try to lead 13-0 after 20 minutes with their resolute defence pinning Hamilton Girls’ High in their half and cut down Hamilton Girls’ High fast and talented backline time after time with great try saving tackles. The game was won in the 4 minutes leading into halftime and the first 3 minutes of the second half when Feilding High raced out to 30-0 with 3 great tries. The last 10 minutes was dominated by Hamilton Girls’ High with Feilding High tiring after 60 minutes of fantastic rugby .Hamilton Girls’ High scored 3 tries and 2 conversions in the final 10 minutes but it was too late and the final score was 30-19.

The final, which will be live on Sky’s  Rugby Channel at 12.00 pm on Sunday will showcase just how good Girls’ rugby is in New Zealand as both teams want to play a fast free flowing game and with 17 tries being scored in the semi- final games have the ability to make the game a real spectacle if the weather remains fine.
