2018 Polson Banner - Napier BHS vs Palmerston North BHS

Item 1

 

Another instalment of one of New Zealand 1st XV rugby’s finest traditions is set down for this Wednesday, July 31.

Palmerston North Boys’ High School and Napier Boys High School have contested the Polson Banner annually since 1903.

The ledger stands 63-45 in Palmerston North BHS’s favour, with six matches drawn. But Napier BHS have won the last two showdowns – including a stirring 39-16 result last season – and travel west aiming for a Polson Banner hat-trick.

With vital Super 8 points also up for grabs, the Polson Banner archrivals will be primed for a fierce contest.
