Cancellation Interhouse Rugby: Gold House versus Blue House, Saturday 22nd July, 10:30am, Field 3  

Due to the space and field requirements of the SKY filming set up for the 1st XV AGS vs MAGS game, a playing field is no longer available on Saturday morning and unfortunately we have been forced to cancel the interhouse match.  The Committee sincerely apologises to those wishing to play and to those who were keen to watch.

If you are still keen to watch a rugby game in the morning before the 1st XV play, there will be 3 Auckland Grammar games on the school grounds throughout Saturday morning.  Please feel free to watch any of these games and give your support to the teams.
