Three-peat for St Paul’s in Auckland Rugby League

College Sport Media:

St Paul’s College have captured a third-straight SAS College Rugby League Premiership title, beating Kelston Boys’ High School 16-4 in Wednesday night’s final.

A frantic opening left both sides scrambling with early errors but it was Kelston that struck first with a try out wide for a 4-0 lead.

Four minutes later and St Paul’s were given full use of the ball inside the attacking 20.

St Paul’s went close to scoring twice, through second rower Christian Tuipulotu and centre Star Toa, before prop Sione Ngahe stormed through the pack carrying up to four players to score under the posts. Halfback Jaelin Murray kicked perfect off the boot to take a 6-4 lead over Kelston at halftime.

It took 10 minutes before points were scored in the second stanza.
