untitledMaama Vaipulu (left) for Counties Manukau and Bryce Heem (below right) for Auckland received Counties Manukau Supporters’ Club players of the match awards after the game on Saturday night.
Visiting player Heem, who scored three tries for his side and thus helped them to the win over the Steelers, received a Counties Supporters’ Club tie, while Vaipulu as home town hero received a trophy as well as a meal voucher to a local establishment for being his team’s first try scorer of the match. The players of the match, one for each team, are chosen each game by members of the supporters club.


Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
