The Howick Hornets Rugby League Football Club have peaked at the right time, winning their three premier matches in the penultimate round of the Auckland Rugby League season. 

The Fox premier reserves got the club off to a hot start at the weekend as they thumped the Bay Roskill Vikings 82-6.  

The Fox premiers were no different as they put away Bay Roskill 40-18 for their fifth win in a row.  

Saturday’s win for the Fox premiers was made even sweeter with the celebration of Hornets halfback Liam Prendergast’s 50th premier match.  

The Hornets’ premier women (‘Nets) closed out the week on Sunday as they hosted bottom-of-the-table Taniwharau at Paparoa Park.  

While it was a close match up until half time, the ‘Nets showed their class, running in a further five tries in the second half to record win number seven for the season.  

Special mention to powerhouse Ma’atuleio Fotu-Moala who crossed over for a hattrick to complement Taylor Curtis and Lisa Edwards Rua’s brace of tries. 

The women have an exciting week ahead as they will play at the New Zealand Warriors’ home ground, Mt Smart Stadium on Wednesday night in front of Sky Sport cameras.
