It doesn’t get any easier for winless Taranaki who face powerhouse Canterbury in a blockbuster clash at Pukekura Park on Saturday. The Bulls went unbeaten in 2021 and will be desperate to show their class against the 14-time NPC champions.


It will be a huge day in Invercargill for the battle of the south when the Stags host neighbours Otago on Sunday. Otago made a huge statement when they tipped over Tasman last week and will need to be at the best against a Southland side who always rise a notch in front of their home fans.
