Mitre10 Cup 2017 Round 1 Predictions

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:
