All the Northland boys sung a team Waiata at the aftermatch. Impressive.
All with their sunglasses on!

Great to see Rene Ranger appearing in NPC again. You hardly see long serving players appearing in the comp anymore - makes you nostalgic for the old days - pre professional - when the provincial squads were a lot older then than what they are now.
He debuted in 2006, so he must be the longest serving player in this year's Bunnings NPC?

The Clive v Tamatea match will have huge ramifications.
If Clive win, Tamatea are relegated.
If Tamatea win, and Central lose to MAC then Central are relegated.
If Tamatea win, and Central beat MAC then Clive will be relegated.
The above doesn't take into account the possibility of bonus points.
If Tamatea beat Clive it is possible for a five-way tie on 13 points between Tamatea (no bonus point), Aotea (lose to Hastings with no bonus point), Pirates (lose to Havelock with 1 bonus point), Central (lose to MAC with 2 bonus points) and Clive (lose to Tamatea with 2 bonus points).
If 3 or more teams finish on the same number of points the rankings are determined on points differential.
Josiah Sakaria (MAC) is a good winger, first year out of Hastings Boys.
Jonty Stewart is a 2nd-year Academy player who last year made the Hurricanes U20 (but hardly got minutes). A 10/fullback. Before that, he was the Feilding HS 1st XV captain.
Don't know much about Paora Manuel-Harmon, except that he's a back out of Poverty Bay.
Bayden Papuni (Havelock North) is a lock/loosie, who attended Hastings Boys. Not sure when.
Damien Scott is a loosie who plays for your own club haha. He's been around for a while. Has repped the Bay in sevens.
That's embarrassing but we have about six good loosies so might not have taken notice of the names of who was actually on the field at all times in the four Premier games I have watched. I did see a tall skinny young guy in the Tech clubrooms tonight wearing Havelock No 1s so that might have been Papanui. Not sure he played in the game though.
Paora Manuel-Harmon played for Pirates and the HB Development team last year before he played for Poverty Bay on loan.
