There were 14 teams in the under-15 tackle grade and seven teams in the under-16 quick-rip grade, which was up from 14 teams in the two grades last year.

Black Ferns Joanah Ngan-Woo, Jackie Patea-Fereti and Kilisitina Moata’ane were also scheduled to make an appearance during the day.

The tackle grade was won by St Hilda’s Collegiate, who won 17-0 over a combined Central Otago schools team, while in the quick-rip grade, Columba College beat East Otago 6-3. 

About 270 girls competed in the tournament.
