    A trough for the Auckland super city-based Farah Palmer Cup rugby teams

    A trough for the Auckland super city-based Farah Palmer Cup rugby teams


    The North Harbour Hibiscus, Auckland Storm and Counties-Manukau Heat have withdrawn from the remainder of the competition due to their inability to train or play under Covid-19 lockdown, regardless of the pending drop to alert level three.

    North Harbour coach Bill Wigglesworth says it's a shame to curtail the season, given his players' sacrifices.
