They were confident of playing in the final after beating Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland) 7-0 last Wednesday. But they won't be going at all now after Te Tai Tokerau (Northland) --- who were beaten 46-14 by Tamaki Makaurau in their pre-tournament match --- qualified ahead of them. At the heart of the dispute is a decision to award Te Tai Tokerau the match points and a bonus point after Counties Manukau failed to turn up for their pre- tournament match last month. Counties Manukau didn't show because most of their players were committed to the New Zealand tag nationals which were on at the same time. The team is gutted,'' says Karla Matua, a Counties Manukau board member and a player. A date was set but it was later changed. The new date clashed with the tag nationals which many of our players had already commit- ted to.'' Matua says the bonus point was the killer blow for the Counties Manukau wahine. It was enough to get Te Tai Tokerau into the final. The Counties Manukau Maori men's and the Counties Manukau Maori Colts will both be playing for third place in Rotorua on Saturday. The premiers were beaten 28-5 by Waiariki (Bay of Plenty) in Te Puna last Saturday. Coach Jack Kani was forced to use Colts players when some of his players didn't show up. The Colts beat Waiariki by default but managed a friendly 25-5 win. The premiers face North Harbour in the playoff for third and fourth.
