  • Looks like Manawatu are set to win their first game.



  • Manawatu win 24 - 12.

    Southland just make scoring tries look hard, even against the worst defensive team in the comp. They've yet to score more than two tries in a game this season.



  • Congrats to Kathy and the Manfield team for heavily promoting this fixture for the fans. Well done Manawatu
