It’s time to get back to the NPC or Mitre10 Cup as it’s now known. Whilst the crowds and interest isn’t what it used to be, it’s still the breading ground of the next generation of Super Rugby players and All Blacks.
Here are my Mitre10 Cup Round 1 Predictions from my Live Stream on Periscope earlier.
Listen to the #RugbyChat podcast to hear who we think will be challenging for the title and in brief here are my round 1 predictions:
|North Harbour v Otago||Otago by 3|
|Tasman v Canterbury||Canterbury by 3|
|Hawke’s Bay v Southland||Hawke’s Bay by 5|
|Taranaki v Waikato||Taranaki by 5|
|Counties Manukau v Auckland||Counties Manukau by 5|
|Northland v Bay of Plenty||Bay of Plenty by 5|
|Manawatu v Wellington||Wellington by 3|
Here’s how Twitter see’s the opening game going:
