The demolishing of a neighbour, a return to form and another come from behind win were the features of the three Round 4 matches. Round 5 will see Southland defend the Ranfurly Shield for the first time against Counties Manukau. It will be also interesting to see if perennial heavyweights (and last year’s finalists) Canterbury and Waikato are able to reverse their form slumps.

Week 4 Review

Bay of Plenty took a mid-week leap on their Premiership rivals by pulverising their Super comrades Waikato and in so doing stretched their lead at the top of the ITM Cup’s top division. Taranaki also for the second time in two weeks came from behind to beat hosts Northland. While Wellington resurged to form with a commanding win at home against ITM Cup champions Canterbury.

Match Previews – Week 5

Game 22 North Harbour v Hawke’s Bay Prediction: Hawke’s Bay by 10-15 points

This pits two attractive playing styles against each other, many All Black observers will be keen to spot and analyse the return of All Black loosehead Tony Woodcock to competitive action for Harbour.

Game 23 Southland v Counties Manukau (RS) Prediction: Southland by 10-15 points

REFEREE: Glen Jackson

Game 24 Waikato v Tasman Prediction: Waikato by 20-25 points

Waikato got a real wakeup call mid-week against a good Bay of Plenty side. Expect them to right the wrongs quickly and get back on the horse here.

REFEREE: Richard Kelly

Game 25 Canterbury v Manawatu Prediction: Canterbury by 25-30 points

Once again minnow Manawatu should have no chance especially away from home. However Manawatu are enjoying a resurgence in form under the revamped ITM Competition and will have their home fans excited about a potential upset against a Canterbury side that were involved in a tough physical outing only a matter of days ago.

TEAMS:

Canterbury: 1. Paea Fa’anunu, 2. Steve Fualau, 3. Andrew Olorenshaw, 4. Luke Romano, 5. Joel Everson, 6. George Whitelock (capt), 7. Matt Todd, 8. Nasi Manu, 9. Willi Heinz, 10. Tyler Bleyendaal, 11. Patrick Osborne, 12. Ryan Crotty, 13. Robbie Fruean, 14. Telusa Veainu, 15. Sean Maitland.

Game 26 Northland v Otago Prediction: Northland by 5-10 points

A mixed bag for both of these Championship sides this season with Otago playing their third away game in a row. This again will be nip ‘n tuck with potentially the Taniwha just prevailing at home.

TEAMS:

Northland: 1. Justin Davies, 2. Ross Wright, 3. Scott Vessey, 4. Bryce Williams, 5. Marty Veale, 6. Joel McKenty (capt), 7. Dan Pryor, 8. Cam Goodhue, 9. Wayne Ngaluafe, 10. Ash Moeke, 11. Bryce Heem, 12. Derek Carpenter, 13. Rene Ranger, 14. Simon Munro, 15. Lachie Munro.

Reserves: 16. Tevita Vaipulu, 17. Aterea Davis, 18. Dan Faleafa, 19. Cameron Eyre, 20. Rhyan Caine, 21. Jack McPhee, 22. Warren Dunn, 23. Jamie Corsi.

Reserves: 16. Liam Coltman, 17. James McGougan, 18. Rob Verbakel, 19. TJ Ioane, 20. Johnny Legg, 21. Hayden Parker, 22. Sam Giddens, 23. Scott Manson.

REFEREE: Ben Skeen

Game 27 Taranaki v Auckland Prediction: Taranaki by 5-10 points

A classic case of when town meets country as the flash city slickers get down and dirty in farming country. These are two of the stronger sides in New Zealand rugby and again they will both be hoping to go one better this season. The home side will be pleased to be home and very competitive against this Auckland outfit. With lots of star players all over the field it will make for an exciting spectacle.

TEAMS:

Taranaki: 1. Michael Bent, 2. Laurence Corlett, 3. Shane Cleaver, 4. James Broadhurst, 5. Craig Clarke (capt), 6. Chris Walker, 7. Scott Waldrom, 8. Ben Souness, 9. Tyson Keats, 10. Beauden Barrett, 11. Jackson Ormond, 12. Jayden Hayward, 13. George Pisi, 14. Andre Taylor, 15. Kurt Baker.
Reserves: 16. Mahonri Schwalger, 17. Carl Carmichael, 18. Jason Eaton, 19. Blade Thomson, 20. Brett Goodin, 21. Jack Cameron, 22. Isaia Tuifua, 23. Willie Ioane.

Reserves: 16. Ash Dixon, 17. Pauliasi Manu, 18. Richard Haddon, 19. Onosai’i Auva’a, 20. Toby Morland, 21. Piers Francis, 22. Isaia Toeava, 23. Angus Ta’avao

Game 28 Bay of Plenty v Wellington Prediction: Bay of Plenty by 10-15 points

Quick turn a rounds is the name of this ITM competition and both these sides will be feeling the effects after tough mid-week clashes against strong opposition. The Competition leaders have everything to hold onto as we approach the mid-way point of the competition and I’m sure they will not want to lose grasp of the situation at this stage. Wellington on the other hand was impressive mid-week in beating Canterbury. This is a tasty encounter to round the weekend’s rugby action off.

TEAMS:

Bay of Plenty: 1. Tristan Moran, 2. John Pareanga, 3. Josh Hohneck, 4. Luke Andrews, 5. Culum Retallick, 6. Tanerau Latimer, 7. Luke Braid, 8. Colin Bourke (capt), 9. Taniela Moa, 10. Chris Noakes, 11. Lance MacDonald, 12. Steve Kefu, 13. Phil Burleigh, 14. Lelia Masaga, 15. Toby Arnold.

Reserves: 16. Daniel Perrin, 17. Pingi Tala’apitanga, 18. Leighton Price, 19. Sam Cane, 20. Jamie Nutbrown, 21. Daniel Waenga, 22. Ben W Smith, 23. Bronson Murray.

Wellington: 1. Jacob Ellison, 2. Dane Coles, 3. Whetu Henry, 4. Jeremy Thrush (capt), 5. Api Naikatini, 6. Faifili Levave, 7. Scott Fuglistaller, 8. Victor Vito, 9. TJ Perenara, 10. Lima Sopoaga, 11. Julian Savea, 12. Michael Hobbs, 13. Alipate Leiua, 14. Jason Woodward or Lote Raikabula, 15. Apoua Stewart or Woodward.

Reserves: 16. Motu Matu’u, 17. Arden David-Perrot, 18. Mark Reddish, 19. Brad Shields, 20. Serge Lilo, 21. Frae Wilson, 22. Michael Lealava’a, 23. Reg Goodes.

    It’s quite good with the 30 odd AB’s not in the comp. and the rest of the Super talent spread across 14 teams….

    …loads of non Super talent about ready to make the step up

    …..as Highlander supporters we spend the whole comp. trying to identify talent that is not already taken. :???:

    …. Daniel Waenga is a prime example
