Wellington v Canterbury should be a good game. I'd like to see Wellington take it out, Shame the Mighty BoP couldn't keep up their winning run. Maybe next year :)

Anyone know what time the AB's v Wales game is on? I'll be at the airport on Saturday night, might be something to do whilst waiting for our flight.

I actually wanted Southland to get to the final, would have been a good rematch with Canterbury.

actually i think wellington have a good chance

if they are able to attack in broken play they look pretty lethal

cantabs will be hard to beat though

im picking a close game with Wellington choking at the final hurdle

The best thing about Finance Minister Bill English\'s latest Budget is that it does finally signal a much greater role for the private sector in the New Zealand economy. And another step along the way to extract this country from the political cul-de-sac in which Helen Clark\'s Labour Government parked us.

New NPC Format released

From http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/provincial/3173109/NZRU-announces-new-competition-structure

 Next year will feature a full 14-team round robin with semifinals and a final, the same format as 2009. But in 2011, a new structure will see the 14 teams split into two divisions of seven, based on their on-field finishing positions in 2010.

The top seven teams will form the Premiership and the bottom seven teams the Championship. Teams will play all other teams in their division plus four other teams from the other division.

The NZRU said there would be an "innovative" new process for teams to select their cross-division opponents, with the detail to be finalised in the first quarter next year.

The winner of the Championship will receive automatic promotion to the Premiership, replacing the seventh placed team in the Premiership, which will be relegated to the Championship.


Looks not a bad idea

Mauger wants to come back.....

31* yrs old.... still one of the best 2nds we have had in a long time, would love to see him back in the red and the black! He is a player who takes some of the kicking stress off of carter too.

I thought the Blues did alright - Wellington just did a better job of pacing themselves, so they had more juice in the tank in the second half (22 unanswered points is testament to that).

The Canes look dangerous though. They'll be right in the mix.

I have to say the weekends games were really enjoyable and i think the rules have really made the game better

It was hard to understand at first but i think once the players adapted it was quite good

good to see most teams attacking with the ball in hand when they had the opportunity

Anyone see the Wales V Scotland 6 nations game? epic finish!
