20-08-2021 Daily Prediction NPC Bunnings Taranaki vs Canterbury

Taranaki vs Canterbury

Taranaki have seeking their first win in the NPC Bunnings competition after losing to Northlands and then being thumped 46-6 by Bay of Plenty. Canterbury have no such problems as they have scored bonus point victories over Manuwatu and Wellington in the opening two rounds. The home team will welcome back Stephen Perofeta as he is the talisman of his side’s backline.

TIP: Canterbury have dominated both their matches with a powerful forwards pack and a potent backline that features All Blacks George Bridge and Mitchell Drummond. For the Taranaki side to have any chance they will need their front row to stand up to the powerful scrum of the visitors. The bookies have Canterbury as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. These are the best odds for this bet: Worldsportsbetting 1.08, Playabets 1.08 and Sunbet 1.07


 Taranaki vs Canterbury

  • Canterbury have won three of their last five matches against Taranaki
  • Taranaki won the last match between the sides 23-22

Latest results for both teams

Taranaki lost their last match 46-6 against Bay of Plenty while Canterbury beat Wellington 43-10 in their last match.


The Canterbury team has front rowers like All Black Owen Franks to call on and the scariest part is that their replacement front rowers are just as strong so Taranaki will need to be at their very best for 80 minutes. Fergus Burke has been brilliant at flyhalf in the absence of Richie Mo’unga and the home team will need their star fullback Stephen Perofeta back to his running best. I am predicting a Canterbury win by 10 points
