Team to Face Bay of Plenty

Looking to brush off last week’s loss to Otago, Jeremy Cotter’s men will be out to knock over the Bay of Plenty Steamers at home on Friday night.

Injuries to Hunter Prescott and Liam Hallam-Eames mean that Tim Cadwallader and Liam Mitchell both get promotions, with Cadwallader starting at hooker and Mitchell grabbing his first Mitre 10 Cup spot since signing his Turbos contract.

Maybe the most exciting prospect for Friday night is the earlier than expected return of Jason Emery, who will act as cover for the midfield pairing of Hamish Northcott and Lewis Marshall. Already a crowd favourite, Willie Ambaka also returns to the starting line-up, after the inclusion of All Black Nehe Milner Skudder last week.
