Must Watch Matches:

Generally I would say a shield match would fit under this title, but I am very confident Canterbury will keep the shield and have a big win over the Taniwha, despite them upsetting Manawatu last weekend.

So....


  • Wellington V Southland - in recent seasons both teams have proven to be strong sides. Southland are having a great '09 sitting 2nd on the table, only a point off leaders Canterbury. Wellington on the over hand have been very disappointing and currently sit at 7th spot. The Lions will be very keen on winning this one, as it will keep their finals hopes alive.



  • Tasman V Auckland - teams 5 and 6 on the table, the Aucklanders on 21 points and the Makos on 20. Tasman will host Auckland and will be eager to get the win here. Up for grabs is a chance at a top 4 spot.



  • Hawkes Bay V Manawatu - arguably the greatest rivalry in the history of NZ rugby, the battle of the Central Vikings sides. These two teams have been heading in opposite directions the last few weeks. Hawkes Bay are finding the form we know they are capable of and have made there way up the table in to the top 4. Turbos on the other hand, have spent a good chunk of the season up near the top, but recent losses have seen them move down to 10th place, with a very slim chance of making the finals. If those reasons aren't enough then this will guarantee you'll be watching, I will be in the crowd, so there is a slight chance you'll be seeing me on the TV!

Anyway enjoy the round of rugby, relax a bit as there is no internationals to worry about.

C'MON THE MIGHTY MAGPIES!!

With the ABs playing and Wellington sucking such complete balls...I've barely paid any attention to the NPC of late...plus I've got an assignment due next Friday so not a lot of free time...MAY watch the Wellington/Southland game but my Wife probably won't let me Sad

Nonetheless:

Wellington V Southland
Taranaki V Waikato
Tasman V Auckland
North Harbour V Counties
Canterbury V Northland
Hawkes Bay V Manawatu
Otago V Bay of Plenty


Good news for Canes fans - Cruden has re-signed with Manawatu making him officially on the Canes' 'protectable' list...

Is your wife a coronation street fan? my flat mates are so I have to compete with them when wanting to watch the Thursday night games.

whipped up a little prediction and got me top 4 as Canterbury, Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Bay of Plenty or Canterbury, Southland, Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay. (there could be a lot riding on this Southland V Wellington match)

And great news! Final round of the Air NZ Cup finishes on the 25th of Oct. Tokyo ABs game is on the 31st of Oct. Meaning the ABs wont be there for finals time Very Happy

Haha, because P'Rus no ABs means more of chance the Magpies can beat the likes of Canterbury and Wellington. Although I would probably prefer there was ABs really, as beating a full strength Canterbury side in the final of the Air NZ Cup would be awesome!! Very Happy

Lol - fair enough Smile

So how does Hendog feel about Guildford (and probably Dagg too) playing for the Crusaders next season?

I'm in two minds about it. I do really hate the Crusaders so I wont be supporting them while they're wearing the Black and Red.

But on the plus side Guilford will get a starting spot, something he definitely isn't guaranteed at the Hurricanes. Another major plus as that over the last few years Crusaders have been handed all blacks jerseys even if they don't deserve them (Ralph, Laulala, Hamilton, Ellis etc.) so hopefully both the boys will benefit from that.

Good to see some Bay supporters in here. I live in napier and go for the bay too.
My tips are
Wellington V Southland
TaranakiV Waikato
Tasman
V Auckland
North Harbour V Counties
Canterbury V Northland
Hawkes Bay V Manawatu
Otago V Bay of Plenty

I think well see wellington and waikato start to come on a bit in the following few weeks.
Yeah shame to see Dagg and Guilford goto the crusaders, but hay they have a pretty professional environment and i think both bay boys will do well down there. Definatly agree with Guilford getting more game time.
Ive been saying since the start of the air new zealand cup tht Izzy will be on the end of year tour. More consistancy and hell be an outstanding player

Rodney is on form tonight, and Wellington are back! leading 32-13 with a few minutes left.

If Wellington can maintain this type of form, expect them Canterbury and either Southland, Hawkes Bay or Bay of Plenty in the top 4.

Coro is on twice a week here so not so painful, just shit that one of the nights its on the rugby is on aswell.

Eastenders is on TV but not a prime time spot, its on during the day on weekdays, so that doesn't effect any sports watching.

Hawkes Bay climbed another position after their bonus point win to the Turbos and Bay of Plenty losing to Otago. Top 4 now goes Canterbury, Southland, Hawkes Bay, Bay of Plenty, with Tasman not far off in 5th.

Wasn't a convincing win for the Magpies but cant complain about getting 5 points. Can not wait for the Bay V Bay clash next round, so much is on the line now.
