Burnside High School hosted the Secondary Schools Tournament for the TOA: Ki O Rahi series on Thursday 26th February.  We entered 2 teams and made it through to 2 finals.

Burnside B lost to Aranui A in the play offs for 3rd and 4th.  Burnside A won the final against Linwood College 15-9.

Well done to all the players who worked really hard in every game and put their bodies on the line on the extremely sunburnt grounds.

If you want to take a look at what Ki-O-Rahi is, you can check out the YouTube link below.
