    Interesting pre-season result. Wouldn't mind a non-Wanganui/North Otago winner this year given the dominance of those two unions over the past few years.

    I definitely preferred the single division for the Air NZ Cup setup. Every team up there should play every other, else we miss out on the opportunity for the Tasmans to get up over Waikato, Auckland, Wellington or Canterbury - which is what the neutrals want to see.

    Still love it though - can't get enough of the NPC.
    Tend to echo these views (besides attending Heartland fixtures). I'd still prefer each team to face each other in the ITM Cup but can understand the difficulties of doing so with the expanded Super Rugby competition leaving such a small window before the summer. Either way, I'll probably watch just as much ITM Cup as I did Super Rugby, despite there being about half the number of matches in a third of the timeframe.

    24/8 Manawatu vs Wellington
    24/8 Tasman vs Canterbury
    25/8 BOP vs Taranaki
    25/8 Otago vs Northland
    26/8 North Harbour vs Waikato
    26/8 Counties Manukau vs Southland

    Heartland Championship round one fixtures:
    Mid Canterbury vs Wanganui

    To make the Heartland Championship tipping a little easier (at least, perhaps), last year's standings were:
    Wanganui 35 (Meads Cup winner)
    North Otago 35
    East Coast 27 (Meads Cup runner-up)
    Mid Canterbury 26

    Buller 26
    South Canterbury 22 (Lochore Cup runner-up)
    Thames Valley 21
    Poverty Bay 19 (Lochore Cup winner)

    West Coast 13
    Wairarapa Bush 8
    King Country 5
    Horowhenua Kapiti 5

    The first week is always the toughest.

    ITM Cup round one fixtures:
    23/8 Hawkes Bay vs Auckland
    24/8 Manawatu vs Wellington
    24/8 Tasman vs Canterbury
    25/8 BOP vs Taranaki
    25/8 Otago vs Northland
    26/8 North Harbour vs Waikato
    26/8 Counties Manukau vs Southland

    Heartland Championship round one fixtures:
    Mid Canterbury vs Wanganui
    Horowhenua Kapiti vs Poverty Bay
    Buller vs Thames Valley
    East Coast vs West Coast
    King Country vs North Otago
    Wairarapa Bush vs South Canterbury

    Some interesting Heartlands games in there. Looking to see Tanner Vili smash some North Otago heads - though preferably without the head-high tackles! Go Tanner!

    Pretty excited for the ITM Cup season to start actually. Predicting a close contest to start things off. Very interested to see how the new rules (and they are new rules, not just new interpretations) affect things, especially the 5 second time limit to clear the ball once stationary at a ruck, and the new scrum engagements with just three calls all of which are one syllable.

    Pretty poor stuff from the Bay so far. Not the best refereeing so far, but some atrocious handling at times.

    Wow! Cracking finish there by Andrew Horrell. Great strength there. How many Auckland players all over him? Five players. Jeez.
