The leading rugby league teams have a tough week in store.

The semifinals of the Stephen Kearney Cup will be held today and the winners will back up in the secondary schools final, at Wakefield Park on Saturday.

Taita meet St Pat's Town in one semifinal while Wainuiomata will clash with Rongotai.

Unbeaten in four matches in the Kearney Cup, Wainuiomata reached the semifinals with a 39-14 win over Silverstream last week.

However, Wainuiomata coach Heston Patea is wary of a Rongotai team that had a 50-12 quarterfinal win over Mana. "They will be tough," Patea said.

Defending champions Taita beat St Bernard's 28-18 in their quarterfinal clash while St Pat's Town beat Aotea 42-18.

Wainuiomata are already assured of contesting at least one final, with their junior team meeting Silverstream in the junior final, for the Johnny Lomax Cup.
