Auckland Boys 1A Rugby – Change in Standing

The results and standings for the Auckland Boys 1A rugby competition have been updated due to Aorere College forfeiting six of its 1st XV matches.

This penalty has been imposed by College Sport as Aorere College had an unregistered, new to school player on its team sheet for each of these six games.

This meant Aorere College had a total of seven new to school players available for the 1st XV team which exceeds the maximum new to school rugby quota of six.

When Aorere College realised the player in question had not been registered with College Sport they immediately informed the organisation of this administrative error.

In deciding on the penalty, College Sport noted that Aorere College declared their mistake.

For the six forfeited matches results of 28 nil in favour of the opposition will stand, the opposition are also awarded the maximum five points.
