Sunday 6 August

COUNTIES MANUKAU JETZ vs WAICOA BAY STALLIONS Massey Park, Papakura 2:00 pm Kickoff Referee: Craig Pascoe

The Jetz are just of the verge of entering the Top 5 of the competition, and are held out by only one competition point. The Stallions are three points behind the Jetz and are rapdily losing touch with the top teams.

TAMAKI LEOPARDS vs NORTHERN STORM Henham Park, Auckland 2:30 pm Kickoff Referee: Adam Burns

Not a huge game in the scheme of things, the Storm in dead last, two points behind the Central Falcons, while with a win the Leopards can join Waitakere on 18 points.

CANTERBURY BULLS vs AUCKLAND LIONS Rugby League Park, Christchurch 2:30pm Kickoff Referee: Leon Williamson

An interesting 1 vs 2 clash, with the Bulls hosting the Lions. The Lions are a lazy five points clear of the Bulls, and the Bulls haven't been in world beating form in the last few weeks. A match more important for the Bulls who want to put space between themselves and the third placed Rangers.

CENTRAl FALCONS vs WELLINGTON ORCAS Yarrow Stadium, New Plymouth 8:00pm Kickoff Referee: Arthur Clark

Not an overly mouth watering clash with 8 playing 9 this week. Both teams are locked on a points differential of -35, with the Falcons two points behind the Orcas. A win for the Falcons will have them jump the Orcas.
