19-08-2021 Daily Prediction NPC Bunnings Counties Manukau vs Waikato

Counties Manukau vs Waikato

Counties had the joy of winning their opening match by a single point but then suffered defeat by the same margin in their last match. Waikato the defending champions have not yet produced the form that they showed last season but they are still unbeaten this season with a draw and a win. The home team will welcome back three All Blacks for this match.

TIP: The undoubted star of the show for Counties in their last match was Nanai-Seturo as he had a hand in three of the tries and also scored a brilliant individual try. Waikato will need to quickly regains last season’s form if they are to extend their unbeaten run in this competition to seven matches. The bookies have Waikato as favorites and I’m tipping Counties for the upset win. These are the best odds for this bet: Worldsportsbetting 2.60, Playabets 2.55 and Sunbet 2.51


 Counties Manukau vs Waikato

  • Waikato have won the last three matches between these sides.
  • Counties have won two of their last three home matches against Waikato

Latest results for both teams

Counties lost 33-32 against Hawkes Bay in their last match while Waikato won 16-10 against Northland in their last match.


The Waikato team need to be precise with their kicking as Counties have shown that they are deadly on counter attack. The trio of Nepo Laulala, Dalton Papalii and Hoskins Sotutu will be keen to show the All Black selectors that they were wrong in not selecting them in the tests against the Springboks. Waikato will again look to their talisman Damian Mckenzie to guide them around the park. I am predicting Counties win by 5 points.
