What’s on? Tai Mitchell and more Lego fun

File photo.

Good morning SunLive readers and welcome to Saturday once again.

It might've looked like a clear morning when you woke up this morning but MetService says it could get a bit drizzly. Cloud is increasing as the day goes on then there's a chance of drizzle from the afternoon and northwest breezes developing.

If you're keen on a drive you can check out the budding rugby stars of our nation - as Bay junior rugby players go head-to-head in the covetted Tai Mitchell Tournament.

It's a tournament that brings a lot of nostalgia to me, and I remember the pride that shone through my school when we brought home the trophy in 2005.

Three teams from Tauranga and two from Sulphur City have joined representatives from Te Puke, Whakatane, Opotiki, Galatea and Rangitaiki at Rotorua Boys' High School to compete for the prestigious title.

Semi's kick off at 10am with the finals from 9.30am tomorrow and the grand final at 12.15pm.

And if you missed out on it last weekend then there's no need to fret - because it's here for most of the month.

Brickman Wonder's is still on at BayPark Arena. See the wonder's of the world, all made from Lego.

There's also a bunch of other activities on throughout the city, and most of them are pretty active - so at least you're bound to warm yourself up! Check them out below:
