Wellington looking to steal the Log ‘O’ Wood off the Magpies, while they are looking to lock it up for the summer. The other intriguing battle will be in Blenheim on Saturday night, where Tasman face Canterbury, who uncharacteristically find themselves on the bottom of the Premiership ladder. It will be a tough battle, with Tasman currently in second place.
