General Elite squad to play at Huntly

For the fifth time in six weeks the Vodafone Warriors' future will be in the spotlight when the Allied Work Force elite development team turns out at Davies Park in Huntly on Saturday.
The Tony Iro-coached side has had as much exposure as the club's first-grade team in the past month or so.
And that will continue this weekend when they give the Waicoa Bay Stallions a trial hit-out for their 2006 Bartercard Cup campaign.
The Allied Work Force-sponsored squad had its first run last month against a Harbour League selection at North Harbour Stadium.
While the young players lost that day they've put together three straight wins since.
Bolstered by some of the Vodafone Warriors' first-grade squad members, they combined to beat the Ipswich Jets 60-4 and the Cudgen Hornets 48-14 on a brief trip to Queensland last month.
They then had the curtain-raiser to the Vodafone Warriors' opening NRL match of the year against Melbourne last Sunday.
Richard Villasanti, George Tuakura, George Gatis, Sam Rapira, Cooper Vuna and Patrick Ah Van were on hand again as the juniors swamped Bartercard Cup franchise the Tamaki Leopards 58-4 after leading 26-0 at halftime.
Coach Iro singled out centre Rowan Baxter, forwards Richard Villasanti and Sam Rapira as well as 16-year-old fullback Levi Tuimaualuga. "Levi was outstanding," said Iro.
Saturday's match in Huntly is due to kick off at 2.30pm.


wonder what the curtain raiser is at Waikato Stadium on Saturday ?
