The 24th annual Masters of Rugby League Tournament kicked off today at Puketawhero Park.
From today until Thursday, 32 teams will compete in the 24th annual Masters of Rugby League Tournament at Puketawhero Park.
The attitude of those who attend the tournament is summed up by a banner across the top of the organisation's website which reads: "We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing."
This year, for the first time, there would be a women's division comprising two teams.
The various men's grades will include teams from Great Britain, Tonga and Cook Islands, as well as a New Zealand Army team.
