Te Awamutu sides put in strong respective performances in the second round of the 2023 Power Farming Cup at Cambridge’s Memorial Park on Sunday.

The Rams, made up of players from Te Awamutu Sports, Te Awamutu Marist, Pirongia, Ohaupo and Kihikihi, took to the field.

With two cup rounds remaining, players are competing for the Goord Cup in an under 45kg division, the Gwynne Shield in an
under 60kg division and in a new category – the Kukri Cup – in an over 60kg division.

Additionally, the Clarke Family Cup will be awarded to the team which collects the most sportsmanship points over the four
rounds.

The Rams Under 45kg team lost 12-10 to the Northern Eels but bounced back with a 45-17 win against the Western Sharks, a side made up of players from Fraser Tech, Te Rapa and Frankton.

The U60kg Rams side won both of its games.

The first round of the cup was held at Hamilton’s Marist Park at the end of July, while rounds three and four are set for Matamata’s
Bedford Park this weekend and Tokoroa’s Southern United Rugby League Football Club (SURF) the following Sunday respectively.
