Auckland vs. Northland
Well Northland nearly pulled it off as I predicted earlier without playing very well themselves. Auckland continue to get worse and we'll do well to stay in the division if things don't improve.
@Tim Moala should shift to the wing in place of Aso.

We have no pattern or effective plan on attack. There is no focus. Without the Ioane brothers we really aren't creating anything.

A lot is made of Auckland 10s but cripes their 9s have been garbage for a long time. How the hell did they let Enari get away.
Give that youngster Mausia some more time at 10 I say.
@Tim Dead right. All we do is smash it up until we run out of ideas which then leads to Bowden trying to put a kick in behind the defence which very rarely comes off. We look like a league team trying to play rugby.

Need some changes. Hopefully Nanai is back next week.
- Does is have to be Bowden?
- Not Aso
Got to be Fekitoa at centre. - he's one of the best, if not the best, players in the competition.
But, all these guys should be dominant in the NPC - Faiane, Moala, Fekitoa, Aso, Clarke, Nanai - that's some incredible weaponry at this level.

yeah I was pretty happy with the way we contained that back division.
Like our mid-field of Tua-Goodhue, certainly neutralised (and were neutralised) thier AB capped opposites.
