NRL games

I know this has been asked before but thought there may be some updates as things can change. On Sunday in NZ at 4pm the Warriors are playing Newcastle. We will be in Raro at that stage and wondered the best place to watch the game that may have a big screen TV. Assuming that will be Raro Saturday night at 6pm ?. Is the High Tide bar a sports bar ?. When we were there in October we thought Chilli's was closed and we know we have watched games there before. Can someone please advise. Thanks

We are staying at Maeva but don't care where we watch it. Anywhere is good. We wondered about the High Tide bar ?. Thanks

High Tide is no good - you will need somewhere with Sky TV.

If Kent Hall is open on the Saturday afternoon you could try there.

Then the Ale House (aka Coco Putt) has Sky TV and Tooks is a big time Warriors fan. Big screen as well as a couple of flat screens.

Then Castaway Resort in Arorangi. They have Sky TV in the Pool Bar area. TV might be a bit on the small side but very nice setting.

Then there is the Golf Club - excellent atomsphere. Always plenty of diehard sports fans there on a Saturday afternoon.

If that doesn't work - then there's Aquarius near the Airport

As a last resort you can park yourself in the Rarotonga Big Game Fishing Club and listen to stories about the one that got away.... AND they do have Sky TV

Hi sue,

From the above suggestions, the Cocoputt Alehouse in Kavera has a cosy atmosphere aimed at diehard sports fans. Kent Hall is directly opposite Maeva, which makes it very close to home for you should they be showing the game.

The Game Fishing Club in Tupapa usually has the clubroom TV on, as well as setting up the bigger screen on the renovated deck area. Except there's a fishing comp on this weekend there, with prize-giving both Saturday and Monday nights which will probably limit league fans enjoyment for a 6pm telecast.
