Storm to make most of facilities

The Franklin Storm will be impressing at home when they take on top of the table Bay Roskill Vikings next week.
They will be playing at Waiuku’s multi-sport park on King Street, on Saturday 14 July.
Grace van der Brink said they are excited to bring a top level game to Waiuku, particularly as the Franklin Storm are currently in the top three of Auckland Rugby League’s Sharman Cup. “Everyone is excited. The team are doing very well,” she said.
While the Franklin Storm have been using the number two field at Navigation Homes Stadium, they are on the lookout for something more permanent. Franklin Storm is a combination of Pukekohe, Tuakau and Waiuku rugby league clubs. In their first season, they’re showing their power. “We booked through the rugby club, then council, the confirmed with Auckland Rugby League. It was a bit of a process, but they managed to squeeze us in,” Grace said.
The reserves will be playing at 12.45 on Saturday 14 July, with the Franklin Storm taking the field at 2.30pm. Everyone is invited to come and support.

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.
