The school, coached by Netesh Sukha won a good tempered and entertaining match 3-2. Many of the Takapuna Grammar School past and current players have come through the ABC youth programme run by Garry Bishop and Darren Joyce.
Some 14 of the players on the field are current ABC members for the adult grade (listed below), a further six are former members; and a handful still playing youth.
ABC is well represented across the schools on the Shore and strives to provide opportunity to accelerate the development of our younger players through our player pathway.
Old Boys: Tom Blathwayt, Mike Caddigan (Coach), Will Clarke, Tim Dean, Ben Holt, Finbar Hoyte, Luke Patterson, Jamie Spencer. TGS: Jacob Birks, Felix Blanchard, Henry Blanchard, Dominic Holt,Josh Porter-Day, Alex Rendle
