As most people are aware that St Pauls 1st 13 team is unstoppable, they neaver lose a game, and have won the Grand Final every year, for the last i dont know 7yrs or so.

Last Year they meet O.C (Otahuhu College) which is my school in the final's and won.

Well last week we might se the greatest upset in School XIII history St Pauls lost againt Mt Albert Grammer 20 -12.

and the only team who is Undefeated is Otahuhu College.

below are the standings after round 4 which was last week round, and the results.

So This year might be the down fall of the greatest XIII School Team, and hopfully my team/ my school, come's out on Top.

Nah mate ... The Saints will fire up knowing its knock out time. The SPL B team unfortnuately didnt make the top 2 due to inconsistency but the A team are truely superb and deserve 1st place in there section. The forwards are just as big from 2005 and the backs seem to be very fast. Good luck to the MAGs boys it truely would be good to have the traditional MAGS vs SPL Auckland grand final!

My money is on St Paul's College to follow through the fine tradition built by former students!

Scholarships have been at the Saints for years but I can betcha no one at the college gets anything different from any other school. Scolarships dont go out to League players as Rugby is supposedly the schools number 1 sport and has been for years since the NZRU pay colleges to field RUGBY teams.

As far as I know Scholarships at SPL are to pay for activity fees and school fees - its funny cos no one really pays school fees!

Go the Saints - SPL 40 OC 4 (by luck)

yeh i understand the scholarships dont pay for much but what they do do is take away the talent that should be at other colleges in auckland. with them recruiting most of the stars from colleges out south, west or north means the colleges in these areas cannot field teams or at least field teams that are going to be competitive. thus the reason why st pauls are in every final except one.
st pauls is new zealands rugby league school and deservedly so. other schools in auckland need to take a page out of st pauls tactics and offer the same sort of commitment to rugby league.
what i want to see is rugby league in schools (especially in auckland) being seen as a serious option rather than playing rugby union.
alot of players are lost to rugby union once they start at high school just due to the fact that kids believe that once u go to high school u HAVE to play union. rugby league needs to set itself up better in high schools with a stronger competition and even more publicity. i would like to see some first 13 (league) games on Maori television in order to get students wanting to play.

Not a bad idea there mate.

Maori TV definitely back Domestic rugby league and getting games before the main matches in bartercard seem to never happen.

1st 13 to be curtain raisers to Bartercard is a great idea - to televise it would be even better as it would be pushing students to want to be on tv.

Totally guttered my school/team Otahuhu College Lost against St Pauls in one the most fast paced closest game ever.

The Final Score was St Pauls 21 Otahuhu College 18.

Their final try for St Pauls came across from a bad call from the Ref by give 10min to our starting Lock, for swearing. He blows time off and goes "who swore" and no one owned up and (he knows who are key players are because he controlled our Semi Final game agaisnt MAGS) and goes "Ok (points to our lock) and goes you will do"

and gives him 10 in the bin.

But besides that the game was brilliant. Willie H comes up to us and goes after the well dones etc. and goes, i tryed to get Sky Sports and Maori Television to film game. Guess they dont really care about the grass roots.

All our boys were in Tear's 17yrs old in tears. Just to give you guys an idea on how emotional the game felt. I felt like taking a spare jersey and running on the field and play.

And later on tonight i will post pictures of the prize-giving last night.

Da guy in da middle on da ground he just vain and smiles, all the time when he is in a picture, he was waterboy. The other two people smiling at the back, they were pooring water down the shirts.

The rest wernt smiling because it was right after the game and we were all upset.

so it was no crap.
