The Makos have been a real success story of provincial rugby and had the Magpies measure of late, with their barnstorming performances in 2019 putting them on top of the Premiership table this is a mouth-watering matchup between two strong sides. Both teams front experienced and uncompromising forward packs mixed with young electric backlines which will make this match up one not to miss. After playing in an absolute mud bath last season Tasman will love a dry track so they can use the pace of Faingaanuku, Havili and Jordan mixed with an uncompromising pack including Parkinson, Blackadder, Crockett, Squire and Makalio. The 2:35pm kickoff will be a great chance for families to enjoy a day out cheering the Magpies on in our last round robin home game.
