By Te Kāea

North Harbour men's 50's team have beaten Auckland to be crowned Champions for 2015. 

The maroon's rushed out of the gates with two quick-fire tries before Auckland hit back. Some slick passing from Harbour saw them cross the line for the third time.

Poor defence from Auckland let North Harbour in for their fourth try to take the score to an imposing 4-1 lead before Auckland hit back again with two tries before the break.

In the second spell Auckland scored to level at 4-4. Harbour replied with an easy score down the left hand touch to take the lead 5-4. In the final minutes North Harbour were able to keep possession closing out the game 6-5.
