Te Puke Sports will look to continue their winning ways when they host Rangataua for the fourth round of the Farmlands Co-operative Baywide Championship this Saturday.
The 2018 champions will go into the match at Murray Salt Stadium as clear favourites after an impressive 50-10 win over Greerton Marist last Saturday.
But Rangataua will take confidence from their narrow 32-28 win against Arataki. Both sides play an exciting brand of rugby. But Te Puke are a side who like to maintain possession, build pressure and capitalise on their opponent’s mistakes.
Whakarewarewa, will look to have a stronger start when they host Tauranga Sports at Puarenga Park. The red and blacks were dominated by Te Puna, going down 52-26. Tauranga Sports were also on the wrong side of the win’s column, losing 24-19 to Mount Maunganui.
The Mount host Greerton Marist at Blake Park and both sides are desperate for a win. Rotoiti will look to continue their winning formula at Emery Park when they host Te Puna. Rotoiti had a solid 27-15 win over Opotiki Sports
In the other matches in the premier division Te Teko host Arataki, both sides suffered loses last weekend and will be keen to turn their season around at Dunderdale Park.
Rangiuru would have to be favourites when they travel to the Princess Street Reserve to take on Opotiki. Rangiuru had an emphatic 52-5 win over Te Teko last weekend.
