Magpies v Otago

Both teams won one game apiece in 2018 but Otago (Hawkes Bay of the South) snatched the semi-final extra time win which still hurts, did someone say revenge? No the Magpies have moved on and are exited to have one of the championship favourites visit the Bay. Otago play a youthful and enterprising brand of footy similar to the Magpies so expect plenty of running rugby and excitement. With seasoned campaigners in Collins, Faddes, Lentjes and Anderson-Heather mixed with the flair of Ioane, Koroi and Nareki expect this game to be a ripper and possible decider of final round robin standings. A great way to break up the work week with some quality Thursday night footy.
