Millennial banner: Canterbury wins NPC
The Cobras capped off a magnificent tournament with a hard fought win over a strong outfit from Auckland. After setting up what proved to be a winning lead in the first half, the Cobras defended tenaciously as Auckland came at them with all guns blazing in the final quarter.
A heartfelt thanks to all Canterbury supporters who helped in running the tournament. Once again, we can be proud of the standard we set.
Canterbury is now the power base of AFL in New Zealand, as we are both the Senior and Under-20 champions.
