The Bay of Plenty Volcanix were stoked to lock away the Chiefs Country Cup for 2019. The cup is contested by Bay of Plenty, Counties Manukau, Taranaki and Waikato. No wonder they were so delighted, Saturday’s win over Waikato was their first win over the side since 1999.

Auckland youngster Princess Elliot was on hand to celebrate Kiritapu Demant’s try on Sunday, alongside Natahlia Moors. The Mount Albert Grammar student has represented New Zealand for the Touch Blacks alongside fellow Storm teammate Isla Norman-Bell.
