MUST WATCH MATCHES

Wellington V Canterbury. Being said as the biggest match of the season. This ranfurly shield match up is on Saturday night and should be a thriller. Both teams getting some All Blacks back. If Wellington get the win the shield wont be contested till round 9 when Southland get a shot. If canterbury take the shield, Otago will get their second shot at it in round 7.

Auckland V Bay Of Plenty. Auckland will get back some All Blacks and will be hunting for their second win of the season, where as Bay of Plenty are yet to lose a game and sit top of the table. With the All Blacks back and home advantage, I think the Aucklanders will be too strong.

Bad news for Wellington, Tamati Ellison, Piri Weepu and Neemia Tialata are all in doubt for the weekends game.

Wrong.

Carter to start for Canterbury in Ranfurly Shield clash with Wellington

WED, 26 AUG 2009 6:56P.M.
By Jim Kayes

Wellington’s hopes of defending the Ranfurly Shield have taken a blow with Bledisloe Cup hero Dan Carter set to start for Canterbury in Saturday’s shield clash in the capital.

The All Blacks ace has been nursing a sore calf after the weekends win over the Wallabies in Sydney, but 3 News understands Carter will be named in the Canterbury team tomorrow.

He will be joined by All Blacks skipper Richie McCaw, in what will be his first challenge for the old log-o-wood, along with tough as teak lock Brad Thorn.

Wellington coach Jamie Joseph will also name his side tomorrow and, in a change of heart, will include most of his All Blacks.

Scroll up a bit SBW, he was unlikely to play at some stage but apparently he's ready to go.

Every time the team that holds the Ranfurly Shield hosts a game they put the shield on the line (except in finals of Air NZ Cup) so last week Wellington (the shield holders) played Auckland in Wellington, Wellington won keeping the shield, this time Wellington host Canterbury so once again the shield goes on the line.

Look here for more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranfurly_Shield Very Happy

also - the challenging team has to actually win outright to win the shield, a draw means the holders retain it.

Nice to dream eh Hendo.

It will be a great tussle - but I just don't see enough firepower in the Lions to be able to counteract the double-threat of McCaw and Carter. So'oialo is not a game-breaker, he'll never let you down and should be able to counteract McCaw to an extent, but the likes of Nonu would need to have a HUGE game to counteract them...

Tonights the night to get the Magpies season back on track, we should be far too strong at home against Tasman but you never know, anything can happen in the Air New Zealand Cup.

Here are the teams

Tasman: Robbie Malneek, James Kamana, Kade Poki, Sione Holani, Blair Cook, Andrew Goodman (cpt), Kahn Fotuali'i, Mark Bright, Jonathan Poff, Joe Wheeler, Alex Ainley, Anthony Elisala, Ben Franks, Daniel Perrin, Sakaria Taulafo.

Subs: Quentin MacDonald, Tristan Moran, Glen Gregory, Zane Winslade, Shaun Begg, Matty James, Afeleki Pelenise.

Hawke's Bay: Israel Dagg, Mark Jackman, Jason Shoemark (cpt), Sam Giddens, Zac Guildford, Matt Berquist, Dane Shelford, Thomas Waldrom, Karl Lowe, George Naoupu, Ross Kennedy, Matt Egan, Clint Newland, Hika Elliot, Sona Taumalolo.

Subs: Ash Dixon, Josh Keys, Adam Bradley, Michael Johnson, Kilifi Fangupu, Andrew Horrell, Jason Kupa.

Thomas the Tank is Back!! near full strength side for us just missing Chris Eaton and Bryn Evans

On paper, the loose forward trio of Waldrom, Lowe and Naoupu has to be on of the strongest in the comp, probably only Canterbury (when they have thier All Blacks) and Waikato with Messam and Lauaki are better.

If you're including ABs, then surely Wellington's Vito/Lilo/So'oialo combo would be considered as "up there"

Even the combo of Levave/Lilo/Vito will be a good one once Levave's fit.
