The Hurricanes travel to Auckland to see which of these two teams will go 2nd in the NZ Conference.

It is still early days in the season but both teams are a little lower on the combined log than they would normally be. This season topping your conference is more important than overall log position though. The winner today will be one or two points behind the NZ conference leader and right in the hunt.

Calling this is ver difficult and I’d have to go with home team advantage. Blues by a very narrow margin.

  • I can’t wait to see Laumanu coming on off the bench for the Blues. He apparently is a monster.
