Combined Ota and Rodney team win division
It is the first time the two schools have combined to make a First XV and many years since either school had a First XV at all.
Their first game of the season was also against Kamo, considered the team to beat in the division, and with just one practice lost by one try.
Highly experienced coach Peter Hugo is credited with turning the boys into champions.
Nicknamed the leadership team, four players were instrumental to the teams success: Sage Walters-Hansen, Simon Parker, Tamati Able and Javarne Porter.
