The Rosmini 1st XI Cricket team played the game of their lives to qualify for Nationals as the Auckland representatives at the end of this year. The boys fought a fiercely contested game against Westlake Boys High School and came out on top. A great team effort with special mention to Daniel Winter and his 127 not out off 101 balls with three sixes consecutively to win the game.
Waka Ama: National Champions
Rosmini College sent two teams to compete in the Under 19 section of the New Zealand Secondary Schools Waka Ama Nationals Competition on Lake Tikitapu in Rotorua. The New Zealand Secondary Schools Waka Ama Nationals competition this year had 123 schools taking part in 206 races.

The ‘Prefect No More’ crew consisting of Keama Aniheta, Ihiraia Hogg, Metui Telefoni, Carlos Phillips, Jacob Franich and Niwa Wiki also joined together with AGGS to win the gold in the plate final.
Overall, the boys competed in the W12, W6 500m, W6 250 and individual 250 and came away with a Championship gold medal and two plate gold ribbons. The boys would like to thank their coach, Ben Finau, Matua Noah Meggitt for his guidance and the whanau for their support, talitonuga (belief) and ofa (love).
