2. The Hastings Boys' High School first XV is good form this year. The team is playing with a rarely seen flair, having scored 461 points and conceded just 91 on their way to winning all 13 of their games so far this season. Along the way they have claimed the scalps of Wellington College, St Pat's Town, St Pat's Silverstream, last year’s national champions Rotorua Boys' High School and most recently New Plymouth Boys’ High School.

4. On Saturday the 2016 Fullers Greatsights Bay of Islands BEAST was held in Paihia. The race blurb said: “You can run, walk or crawl the super tough 7km course over rolling countryside; navigating swamps, river crossings, a little bit of mud, some very steep hills and traverse rugged uneven terrain.” The secondary schools section was 4.5km and there were about 180 entrants. The winner was Kieran Swords in the U19 division. Trista Comer, in the Girls U14 division, was the first secondary schools female home overall.
