Northland win quad event
24 January 2022
Northland best of four Women Open Prem sides

The Far North was welcomed back into the fray at Mangawhai on Sunday 23 January, after a long break joining Northland, Counties Manukau and Auckland in an Open Women’s Quadrangular event – a warm-up for the National Inter Centre competition in March.

The first round saw Auckland out of the blocks with decisive wins in the Singles and Fours (21-2 and 27-3). However, due to two key injuries on the day, the Auckland Selector was able to use the rest of the games as combination experiments.

Northland won on the day with 18 points +31 followed by Auckland on 16 points +47.
