Both Waikato and Counties Manukau will have the chance to defend their Under 19 crowns on Saturday, advancing to the Graham Mourie Cup and Sir Michael Jones Trophy Finals of the Jock Hobbs Memorial National Under 19 tournament respectively.

Waikato set up a repeat of the 2016 premiership final with a hard fought 27-20 victory over North Harbour in yesterday's semifinal.

They will again face Auckland who looked strong in a 44-10 victory over Canterbury. Former New Zealand Schools first five-eighth Harry Plummer scored 29 of Auckland’s points.

These teams met in the 2016 Final, with accurate kicking from Waikato securing the title in a 25-22 thriller.

Counties Manukau were strong in their championship semi-final victory over Hawke’s Bay, winning 20-3. They will be aiming for their third Sir Michael Jones Trophy in as many years when they meet Southland in the Final.

Inaugural Sir Michael Jones Trophy winners Southland have advanced to the Final by way of a 36-8 win over the Heartland side. It’s a marked improvement from their 16th placing in 2016.
