Canterbury is the six-times defending champions in the ITM Cup and not surprisingly they start as warm favourites to do it again in 2014. However they have lost a good deal of experience this season in the form of George Whitelock, Andy Ellis and Corey Flynn, and so the younger brigade will have to step up for coach Scott Robertson.

Their first opponent, Auckland, is well capable of being a major player this season under new coach Paul Feeney. The blue and whites , as always, have plenty of depth and their backline in particular is going to be a problem for most sides. George Moala, Ben Lam, Francis Saili and Simon Hickey would be welcome in most teams and they’ll be keen to unleash against the defending champions on Saturday afternoon.
