A team of keen young Petone rugby league players will forfeit their points and risk disqualifying themselves in an upcoming tournament because one of their star players is banned.
The reason? She’s a girl. Aayla Toman, 13, has been told she’s not allowed to play in the u13 boys’ grade in Wellington’s Pacific Youth Cup because of her gender – something that led her club team, the u13 Petone Panthers, to play her ‘illegally’ all season.
New Zealand Rugby League rules state the maximum age for males and females to play in mixed gender full contact rugby league is 12 years of age.

Work will begin on Tuesday 27 October on the next stretch of new walking and bike paths around the bays.

The Downer NZ team will start on the city side of Greta Point and work back towards the city as far as Weka Bay. Stop/go traffic management, and a 30km/h speed limit will be in place Mondays to Fridays, 9am-4pm.
Please take extra care walking, running, biking, scooting and driving through this area. Work will take about 8 months.

The improvements are part of Tahitai, the biking and walking route from the east that has been taking shape at Ōmarukaikuru/Pt Jerningham, and along the Kilbirnie foreshore next to Cobham Drive.

They will also form part of Te Aranui o Pōneke/the Great Harbour Way. For information, visit
