The Hawke’s Bay Tui have hit the top of the Championship ladder, overtaking Otago after their demolition of Taranaki 74-0 in Napier last week.

Taranaki v Northland, TET Stadium, Inglewood – Live streamed on Taranaki Rugby Facebook page

 

Saturday 28 September, 2.30pm

No previous match

Referee: Monique Dalley

 

Northland picked up an historic victory over North Harbour in Whangarei last weekend – their first ever win in the Farah Palmer Cup. On the flipside, it was a disappointing result for the Whio. They’ll be wanting to bounce back quickly. These two sides have never faced off before, so it will be an intriguing battle.

 

Teams:

Taranaki Whio: 1: Bethany Gibbs 2: Petra Zwart 3: Leah Barnard 4: Sharee Brown 5: Victoria McCullough 6: Jalana Smith 7: Miriam Karalus 8: Natale Haupapa 9: Iritana Hohaia 10: Brooke Sim 11: Brooke Neilson 12: Chelsea Fowler 13: Elle Johns 14: Catriona Tulloch 15: Catherine Parkinson

Counties Manukau v Canterbury, Navigation Homes Stadium, Pukekohe

Played: 7

Won: Counties Manukau 1, Canterbury 6

Last match: Canterbury 52 Counties Manukau 29 in Christchurch on 20.10.18 (FPC PF)

Referee: Bex Mahoney

 

This promises to be the match of the round. A replay of last year’s Premiership final, in which Canterbury convincingly won. They are on the hunt for a three-peat and so far, haven’t dropped a game. Despite the Heat losing to Wellington, they are fresh off a bye and will be looking to impress at home.

 

Teams:

Counties Manukau Heat: 1: Leilani Perese 2: Grace Gago 3: Aotearoa Matau 4: Temira Mataroa 5: Rebecca Burch 6: Ilisapeti Molia 7: Larissa Lima 8: Justine Lavea 9: Arihiana Marino-Tauhinu 10: Hazel Tubic 11: Waikohika Flesher 12: Shontelle Woodman 13: Shyanne Thompson 14: Lavina Tauhalaliku 15: Emily Kitson

Wellington v Waikato, Westpac Stadium, Wellington – Live on Sky Sport

 

Saturday 28 September, 2.35pm TICKETS 

Played: 11

Won: Wellington 7, Waikato 4

Last match: Wellington 11 Waikato 5 in Hamilton on 16.9.17

Referee: George Haswell

 

Both sides will be disappointed with last week’s losses. Wellington fell to Auckland, while Waikato were narrowly defeated by Bay of Plenty. The Pride are boosted by the return of winger Ayesha Leti-I’iga who missed last week’s match due to bereavement leave, but they are still without skipper Jackie Patea-Fereti who is recovering from concussion.   

 

Teams:

Wellington Pride: 1: Raylene Lolo 2: Alice Soper 23: Janet Taumoli 4: Te Amohaere Ngata-Aerengamate 5: Sanita Levave 6: Nina Foaese 7: Sinead Ryder-Toala 8: Joanah Ngan-Woo 9: Ana-Maria Afuie 10: Amanda Rasch 11: Ayesha Leti-I’iga 12: Fa’asua Makisi 13: Bernadette Robertson 14: Kolora Lomani 15: Emily Dalley

RESERVES: Rosie Stirling, Barbra Taumoli, Emma Hopoi, Precious Auimatagi, Montana Heslop, Rejieli Uluinaya, Angelica Uila

 

Waikato: 1: Toka Natua 2: Azusa Yama 3: Tanya Kalounivale 4: Chyna Hohepa 5: Tazmin Gaby-Sutherland 6: Ash Gaby-Sutherland 7: Kennedy Simon 8: Lena Mitchell 9: Renee Holmes 10: Chelsea Alley 11: Lonita Ngalu Lavemei 12: Ryleigh Hayes 13: Rina Paraone 14: Donna Reynolds 15: Calista Ruruku

RESERVES: Josina Ngare, Awhina Tangen-Wainohu, Leomie Kloppers, Esther Tilo-Faiago, Kennedy Tahau, Mereana Hyde, Sophie Millar

 

Otago v North Harbour, Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin – Live on Sky Sport

 

Sunday 29 September, 11.30am TICKETS 

Played: 4

Won: Otago 3, North Harbour 1

Last match: Otago 27 North Harbour 13 in Dunedin on 1.9.18

Referee: Brittany Andrew

 

North Harbour haven’t beaten the Spirit since 2016, and after last weekend’s loss to Northland, they’ll be desperate for victory. The Spirit on the other hand, are having a brilliant season. They sit in second place on the Championship ladder, but on equal points with leaders Hawke’s Bay. This match is part of Otago’s Double Header, with the men’s side looking to defend the Ranfurly Shield against Waikato at 2.05pm. It should be a great afternoon under the roof.

 

Teams:

Otago Spirit: 1: Isla Pringle 2: Tegan Hollows 3: Eilis Doyle 4: Kate Smith 5: Julia Gorinski 6: Bree Thomas 7: Morgan Henderson 8: Greer Muir 9: Rosie Buchanan-Brown 10: Rosie Kelly 11: Teilah Ferguson 12: Kilisitina Moata’ane 13: Amy Du Plessis 14: Trisha Hopcroft 15: Sheree Hume

RESERVES: Gemma Millar, Claudia Hobbs, Jess Kendall, Hannah Stolba, Hinemoa Watene, Cheyenne Cunningham, Meg Breen

 

North Harbour Hibiscus: 1: Inga Timani 2: Amy Robertshaw 3: Olivia Ward-Duin 4: Jay Jay Taylor 5: Sophie Fisher 6: Anita Berry 7: Kate Williams 8: Tearren Nanjen 9: Hailey Beale 10: Rona Wharawhara 11: Renee Adams 12: Caroline Sio 13: Mikayla Robinson 14: Caitlyn Cox 15: Raquel Garcia

RESERVES: Danjela Haigh, Nicole Brown, Ashleigh Nathan, Tenaija Fletcher, Katelyn Hilton, Justine Vizirgianakis, Simone Small

 

Manawatu v Auckland, Central Energy Trust Arena, Palmerston North – Live on Sky Sport

 

Sunday 29 September, 2.35pm TICKETS

Played: 11

Won: Manawatu 1, Auckland 9, drawn 1

Last match: Manawatu 44 Auckland 17 at Pakuranga on 1.9.18

Referee: Larissa Collingwood

 

The Cyclones have recent success over the Auckland Storm, however their 2019 Farah Palmer Cup season hasn’t been going to plan so far. They are yet to win a game, while Auckland are second on the Premiership ladder. Last year Manawatu thrashed Auckland 44-17, so they’ll be hoping for a winning result on Sunday in front of their home fans in Palmerston North. Auckland No 8 Charmaine McMenamin will bring up her 50th game for the Storm.

Manawatu Cyclones: 1: Sequita Hemingway 2: Sosoli Talawadua 3: Kahli Tipene 4: Ashleigh Knight 5: Jessica Fagan-Pease 6: Layla Sae 7: Samantha Tipene 8: Jayme Nuku 9: Lucy Brown 10: Selica Winiata 11: Lauren Balsillie 12: Janna Vaughan 13: Shanna Porima 14: Rangimarie Sturmey 15: Crystal Mayes
