The NPC is nearly here for another year, so its time to discuss what's going to happen this time around.

Sadly, I think Wellington are going to struggle this year. Their best non-All Black players have all moved on (Collins, Paku) and even Jimmy Gopperth has left... Auckland once again look the team to beat, and its hard to go past the expectation of an Auckland vs. Canterbury final.
Hoping that the Hawke's Bay boys can keep a high standard this year and also expecting further improvement from the Manawatu. Bay of Plenty are my prediction for bottom of the league.
