Must watch matches:

Old rivals Auckland and Canterbury meet at Eden Park on Saturday Night, both teams will be looking for their first win of the season.

The Mighty Magpies meet Wellington at McClean Park also on Saturday. Should be a thrilling match.

Looks like a day at the pub for me on Saturday. 3 matches on all should be a good watch.

C'MON THE BAY!

Should also mention the battle of the Southern boys Otago V Stags. That will be a huge game I reckon. If the Otago boys can play like they did for the first 65mins against Welly they should get the win, but the Stags have had the better of them in the last couple of seasons and will be looking at keeping it that way.

Reserves: Dane Coles, Anthony Perenise, Api Naikatini, Faifili Levave, Ruki Tipuna, Fa'atonu Fili, Buxton Popoali'i.

Jamie Joseph has stated that we won't play the released All Blacks unless they are hit by injury, despite them being available over the next couple of weeks - he is doing this to maintain fluency in the squad, especially for the next Shield defence against Auckland in a game where the ABs will not be available - so Jane, Weepu, So'oialo and Tialata are unlikely to see any game time for the Lions this season. Ellison is excempted from this stance because he was listed on the season's original Lions squad - the others were not. This is particularly harsh on Cory Jane because, unlike the others and despite being on the bench, he has been seeing precious little game time for the ABs and no chances to push his claims for a starting spot.

Northland had an impressive game against the Naki last night winning 29-16, maybe they arent destined for relegation like I thought they were.


Good news for the Magpies that the Wellington ABs wont be joining the Lions this weekend.

Southland are definitely a team to look out for this year, wont be suprised to see them in the semi finals. Looked great last night in their 26-19 win over Otago. Greatest Rivalry in NZ Rugby!

In the other match, Tasman upset North Harbour winning 19-15. Interesting result considering just the week before Harbour beat last years champions Canterbury.

BIG NIGHT TONIGHT!! Beers start at 2:30pm for the Turbos taking on Waikato, at 5:30 is the match of the week the Mighty Magpies taking on Wellington and then finally 7:30 is two of the traditional powerhouses of NZ Rugby battling it out, Canterbury V Auckland.

Great to see my Canterbury and Tasman get up!

Manawatu might give some teams a suprising and I saw wish they do...... Hendo I am wishing Auckland get relgated do you think there is much chance of this even if they do come last or second to last? They have been very poor the last seasons so i dont know why they should remain even if they are a big franchise....... Relegate Auckland and move Counties up north.

Venom - the NZRU have made steps to ensure the likes of Auckland avoid the initial relegation by taking into account things like finances and player base - neither of which Auckland is anywhere near last in. This is also what will basically ensure that the unlucky ones will most likely be Counties, Manawatu, Tasman and Northland - regardless of finishing positions.

Thats a pitty I seem to find the 'less known' teams more attracting to watch. Although maybe the Naki, BOP, or let alone low chance because of results Hawksbay could go down.

There is no chance Hawkes Bay will go down they've been turning over good profits in last couple of years, making the top 4 and getting a lot of people turning up to games.

I'd say the safe teams are Auckland, Canterbury, Wellington, Waikato, Otago, Hawkes Bay, Southland, North Harbour and Taranaki.

Leaving 4 out of Manawatu, Tasman, Northland, Bay of Plenty and Counties to get relegated and will be joined with Poverty Bay and one other hearltand team in division 1.

Well thats the way I see it.

Wanganui will likely be the other team propped up - or possibly North Otago.
