New Zealand national First XV Championship 2019 – schoolboy rugby

Hastings Boys’ High School of the Hurricanes may have only finished in second place in their own regional (Super 8) round robin regular season and then been beaten in competition final but the wildcard like route proved good enough for them. When push came to shove they produced the perfect record and claimed the biggest price in New Zealand schoolboy rugby – the Barbarian Cup. Although controversial poachers St Kentigern’s were eliminated from the main title race by eventual boys’ school runners-up Kings College of Auckland, St Kent’s did go on to lift the Co-ed Cup in 2019.
