MAGS won the first four pool games of the warm up tournament to the NZSS tournament to be played in Rotorua out at the Marist Rugby Club.
Baradene and MAGS made the finals of the APC in both the Junior A grade and the Premier grade. The finals played at Michaels Ave again in wintry conditions were won by MAGS Premiers 1 – 0 and the Junior A’s finishing extra-time on 3 – 3 went on to lose on penalties.
A tight game all the way through in miserable conditions played at Colin Maiden Park. A half time score of 12 – 7 to MAGS led to a nail biting last 10 minutes after AGS scored and converted another try. With a few minutes to go MAGS held off another onslaught to finish Auckland Champions for 2023 with a final score of 15 – 14.
