There were 3 teams playing in the year 5/6 grade (Levin, North and Fairfield School) and 6 teams in the year 7/8 grade (Taitoko, Fairfield, x2 Ohau and x2 Levin Intermediate). Five members of the Waiopehu College 1st XV were officiating the games.

In the year 7/8 grade Ohau 1 ended up qualifying 1st after round robin followed by the 2 Levin Intermediate teams and Taitoko who managed to secure the last semi final spot.
