Celebrate NZ: Battle of the Titans

In a grunty mixture of talent, toughness, testosterone and tradition, 1st XV schoolboy rugby teams lock horns all over the country as they battle it out for their college. The number of secondary school teams, including girls, is on the rise with some much-anticipated games shown live on Sky TV. No battle is more fierce than the traditional clash between Auckland Grammar School and King’s College, watched this year by a huge crowd. Grammar won 29-15, taking home the coveted Cooper/Greenbank Cup. Photos / Sarah Ivey
