The Tupapa-Maraerenga Panthers have put in a dominant performance at Raemaru Park on Saturday, defeating the Arorangi Bears 36 – 12 in the only Cook Islands Premier League match to go ahead over the weekend.

Friday’s match between the Ngatangiia-Matavera Sea Eagles and Aitutaki Sharks was cancelled after torrential rain and lightning made conditions unsafe at Nukupure Park, whilst Saturday’s clash between the Eels and Bulldogs at Aretere Park was awarded to Avatiu after Titikaveka again failed to raise enough players for the match.

The wet weather also meant that the inaugural Cook Islands Women’s Premiership match was also cancelled.

In other games played over the weekend, the Arorangi Bears defeated the Panthers 42 – 30 in Reserves, whilst in the Under 19’s, the Bears defeated the Panthers, whilst the Eels and Sea Eagles drew.
