Gridiron WLG v AKL ThunderBowl

Our house looks down on Raroa Park from Broadmeadows, and when I saw this game going on last Saturday I decided watching it with Joel and taking a few photos would be relaxing way to spend the afternoon.

This is probably the best photo I took with the hills & harbour in the background but unfortunately I only 'saw' this perspective when reviewing my photos at home so didn't line up any others.

The game was the Thunder Bowl being a playoff of the best players from the Auckland & Wellington club competitions. It wasn’t clear whether it was selected/representative sides, or whether it was the year’s best club from each city. We left at about the ¾ mark when Auckland were up 18-0.

We really enjoyed it. The game wasn’t the highest quality in terms of playing standards, but we are quite intrigued by gridiron after the NOLA Saints winning the Super Bowl, and because we often see these games from our house. Seems they’re played in summer for both the fun of it and also as summer fitness training for the rugby league boys.

Great photo. It would be great to watch a game on a lazy weekend.
