Two seasons ago, North Harbour and Northland were lingering at the bottom of the Mitre 10 Cup Championship ranks, fast forward to 2017 and they have been setting the competition alight.

North Harbour, promoted to the Premiership after their play-offs victories over Wellington and Otago last year, added another scalp to their already impressive list when beating Counties Manukau 27-18 in the latest round and are in second place behind Canterbury, two bonus points adrift.

Northland sit in second place in the Championship, one game in arrears and six points behind leaders Wellington, but knowing they have the ability to take it to the best sides after dishing out a 37-7 thrashing of Premiership side Waikato in Whangarei on Saturday.
