You couldn't get a more important round of rugby, its the final round of the Air New Zealand Cup and still 3 out of the 4 finalists are undecided. The only team that have guaranteed a final spot before this round is top of the table Canterbury, but don't think they'll be taking it easy, they put their shield on the line for the 4th since winning it off Wellington in round 5.

MUST WATCH MATCHES

Canterbury V Southland - Not only is this a shield challenge but Southland are also playing for a top 4 spot. It is a great way to start the round, expect it to be a thriller. Canterbury will have one of their weakest line ups in years with 8 of their players out for All Blacks duties, including their entire front row. Ellis, Flynn, Thorn, McCaw, Carter, Read, Franks and Crockett are what Canterbury are missing. Only Jimmy Cowan missing for the Stags.

TAB Odds have Canterbury strong favourites at $1.30 to Southlands $3.10, head to head. If your thinking of putting a bet on Southland though, Stags 1-12 is where I'll be putting my money, TAB has it at $4.50.

Northland V Hawkes Bay - Pride is on the line for the Taniwha, but Hawkes Bay have a lot more to play for. The Magpies will be desperate for a bonus point win. The Southland result will have a huge effect on the Magpies, if the Stags win Magpies really need a bonus point win, if the Stags lose just a win will be enough. Hawkes Bay are missing the try scoring machine, Zac Guilford, who for the first time has been called up for the All Blacks.

TAB has Magpies as strong favourites at $1.22 to Northlands $4.00, head to head.

Tasman V Wellington - after losing to Otago last weekend, Tasman killed any chance they had of making the top 4. Wellington, need a win to cement their spot in the finals. If they manage to beat Tasman, who have not scored a single point for two weeks, they will seal a home semi final. Wellington will be without All Blacks, Jane, T. Ellison, Nonu, C. Smith and Tialata.

TAB has Wellington at strong favourites, $1.20 to Tasmans $4.20, head to head.

Waikato V Auckland - if Southland lose it will open up a spot in the top 4 for one of these two teams to slip into. Waiakto will be without captain, Liam Messam as well as Mils, Leonard, Sivi and Donald who are away with the All Blacks. Auckland will be without Afoa and Kaino.

TAB has Waikato as favourites at $1.65 to Aucklands $2.15, head to head.

The other remaining games will have no effect on top 4 placings.

If anyone has any questions about what needs to happen for any team to make the finals, just ask!

Cmon Turbos lets finish the season on a high and beat the Harbour Losers.

Also hopefully the Magpies can get a bonus point win as well and of course the shield will be heading south.

My Preditctions

-Canterbury V Soutland (1-12). Will be a nail biter but think Cantabs will just get up.
-Northland V Hawkes Bay (13+) So much to play for, the Magpies will surely bring their 'a' game
-Tasman V Wellington (13+) Tasman been struggling, Wellington will be too strong.
-Manawatu V North Harbour (1-12) Turbos to finish off their season with a win
-Otago V Counties (13+) - Impressive last week were Otago expect much the same this weekend.
-Waikato V Auckland (1-12) - Waikato will have home advantage, this should be a decisive factor
-Bay of Plenty V Taranaki (1-12) - No Delaney, but the BOP should still be too strong at home.

If thats the case, we'll need a bonus point without Waikato getting one, they bet us earlier in the year and if we finish even they will be ahead of us. Bullshit if you ask me, should be decided on PD.

Put a crazy Multi on this week but reckon it has a reasonable chance of happening, the first game is the only one I'm a bit worried about, but would be kicking myself if it came through and I didn't put anything on it....so here it is.

1. Southland 1-12 over Canterbury
2. Wellington 13+ over Tasman
3. Hawkes Bay 13+ over Northland
4. Manawatu 1-12 over North Harbour
5. Otago 13+ over Counties
6. Waikato 1-12 over Auckland
7. Bay of Plenty Head to Head over Taranaki

I only put on $5 and will get a $1,451.90 return. The two in red are the only options I hadn't picked the favourite.

What do you reckon?

I think Auckland will upset Waikato this week. Auckland are very hot and cold but think they will play well this week

As long as we score a bonus point win and Waikato don't we'll be in the 4

WOW! Southland have taken the shield from Canterbury and in doing so have sealed a place in the semi finals.

SOUTHLAND!!! Smile

More importantly though - they've proven Canterbury can be beaten at home - especially with their current, weakened squad that they'll be fielding in the playoffs.

I'm stoked for Southland and love seeing Canterbury lose but am worried for my Magpies.

Now if Hawkes Bay win tomorrow night it may not be enough, if Waikato and us both get equal competition points from this round we wont make the 4, we need to win with a bonus point and for them to not get a bonus point win. Bad thing is, if we win tomorrow night Auckland (Waikatos opponents) wont have anything to play for.

Pretty happy picking southland last night. I thought canterbury were in trouble of droping a game, still will probably mean they will be harder to beat now in the finals.

Wellington have confirmed a home semi, beating Tasman 22-14. Meanwhile Hawke's Bay have done as much as they can to qualify by getting the much-needed bonus point against Northland - winning 32-13.

Hendo will no doubt be thinking how he can sabotage the Waikato team tomorrow Smile
