Niko Jones – making his own name

“There’s a sense of excitement building. We have a talented team that’s progressing well,” Niko Jones enthuses when reflecting on the fortunes of the St Peter’s College First XV.

St Peter’s are third in the Auckland competition 1A standings and recently toppled fierce rivals and neighbours, Auckland Grammar School for just the 12th time in 60 matches. Captain Jones captures the last play drama.

“It was an amazing game, any game against Auckland Grammar is a big occasion, but this game was on their home ground and required a last-minute penalty kick for us to win. Year 11 Ajay Faleafaga, in his first start for the First XV, kicked the winning goal from about 15-metres in 30-metres out,” Jones reflects.
