Roope Rooster on the line again in Auckland premiership

The Konica Minolta Roope Rooster found a new home last week and could be on the move again come Saturday when Pt Chevalier hosts Richmond at Walker Park in Auckland's Fox Memorial competition.

A thrilling 11-10 victory over defending champion Glenora last week saw the Pirates secure the challenge trophy for the first time since the opening rounds of last year, while for Richmond, this weekend presents it with its first challenge opportunity since round eight last season.

There is plenty on the line as well for both Mangere East and Marist, when they clash in the week two livestream game at Walter Massey Park.

Having both suffered defeats in round one, the Hawks and Saints will be desperate to avoid a 0-2 start for the second straight season.

The match is available live and free on with coverage from 2.00pm and the match kicking off at 2.30pm.

Howick hosts Otahuhu in a match that was originally scheduled for Bert Henham Park but has been moved due to storm damage while out west Glenora looks to bounce back from an opening-round loss when it takes on the new-look Papakura Sea Eagles.

Mt Albert and Northcote, both winners in round one, face off at Fowlds Park in a meeting of two pre-season favourites.
