Saturday night in the capital city sees last season’s beaten finalists, Wellington, pitted against Waikato. Coach Chris Boyd, who takes over at the Hurricanes next season, has had a dreadful time with injuries to key players and will be missing quality individuals like Ardie Savea, Jeff To’omaga Allen, Motu Motu’u and Ross Filipo for most if not all of the season.

A big plus is the return of Jason Woodward from Australia and along with plenty of up and coming local talent on offer, Wellington might not be as bad as first seems. Waikato had a rather average 2013 season but coach John Walters has assembled a powerful squad which bears little resemblance to the Chiefs but is itching for a return to the big time.

Home advantage might just see Wellington home here.
