The Jock Biddle trophy will remain with Waiohau for the next two years yet again after Ngati Haka / Patuheuheu defended the trophy in the rugby A division of the Tuhoe Ahurei.

They played against Te Hono i te Kiore in the final winning 29-15. This is the third time Ngati Haka / Patuheuheu has held the Jock Biddle trophy, they have held it since the 2011 Tuhoe Ahurei.

Last Friday they won by default because Mataatua ki Rotorua did not field a team and on Sunday they firstly played and beat Te Karu to reach the final.

Ka noho tonu te taonga Jock Biddle ki roto o Waiohau hei rua tau ano, whai muri i te eke panuku o Ngati Haka/Patuheuheu, ki te wāhanga A o te whutupōro i Te Hui Ahurei a Tūhoe. I tuki rātou ki a Te Hono o te Kiore i te whiringa whakamutunga, me te wikitoria 29 ki te 15 ngā tatai. Koinei te tuatoru mo Ngati Haka/Patuheuheu ki te pupuri i tenei taonga, otira, i a ratou te taonga Jock Biddle i tera o Te Ahurie a Tuhoe i te tau 2011. I te Rāmere kua hipa, i riro ratou i te wikitoria na te kore o te tima o Mataatua ki Rotorua ki te papa takaro, a, i te Ratapu i hinga i a ratou a Te Karu tuatahi, kia uru ki te whiringa whakamutunga.
