The Auckland Rugby League in conjunction with College Sport are gearing up for the SAS College Rugby League season kick-off.
The preliminary pools get underway tomorrow Wednesday May 4, with the championship rounds (contested between the top two teams from each pool) starting on June 8.
The Premier final is set down for August 10 at Mt Smart Stadium #2.
ARL competitions manager Patrick Carthy says it’s going to be another big year for the SAS College Rugby League competition.
"There's been an increase in participation from schools and we're excited to see Paerata’s/Pukekohe's prestige rugby union school Wesley College come on board," he says.
"Wesley College are expected to have huge potential in this competition. Being placed in Pool A with the 2015 champions St Paul's College, we're sure this will be an exciting battle."
The secondary school competition demonstrates a proven pathway in the NRL having unearthed Vodafone Warriors squad members and former SAS College Rugby League players Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and David Fusitu’a.
2015 Premier winners St Paul's College will return to defend their title and will play in Pool A alongside Southern Cross Campus, Papatoetoe High School, Wesley College and Tamaki College.
Games will be played every Wednesday at 4pm, with home and away rounds for every team.
