The Tai Mitchell tournament began in 1938, and is one of the most important events in junior rugby.

Held at Kawerau Rugby Club this year, teams will contest the annual Bay of Plenty-for the Tai Mitchell Shield.

The original Tai Mitchell Shield was presented by Mr Henry Taiporutu Mitchell in 1938, for competition among the primary school teams representing The Bay of Plenty rugby sub-unions. Mitchell was a renowned Rotorua sports administrator and a supporter of all codes.

The tournament doubles as a trial for the Bay of Plenty Roller Mills team, which will represent the province at the northern regional tournament against sides from Northland, Auckland, Thames Valley, King Country, Waikato and North Harbour.
