Tasman vs Canterbury

Tasman welcomes Canterbury to Lansdowne Park, Blenheim for this match in the NPS Bunnings competition. Both teams are coming off defeats in their last match and will be keen to bounce back with a win. The home team in particular desperately needs a win as they have lost two of their opening three games and languish in fifth spot on the log. Canterbury are second on the table with two wins from their three matches.

TIP: Tasman will be without their two All Blacks from last week in Sevu Reece and Leicester Fainga’anuku which will only make their task more difficult in this match. Canterbury have no such problems as they have a full strength team to choose from. Both teams desire to win could see a very tight game. The bookies have Australia as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. These are the best odds for this bet: Worldsportsbetting 1.40, Playabets 1.41 and Sunbet 1.38

  • Tasman have only won two of their last ten matches against Canterbury.

Latest results for both teams

Tasman lost 35-27 against North Harbour in their last match while Canterbury lost 16-10 against Otago in their last match.


Tasman have an overall very poor record against Canterbury but the will hope that their desperation can get them over the line. Canterbury have been superb in the forwards especially at scrum time as they have gained numerous scrum penalties this season. The home team will be hoping flyhalf Parata has a better game as he was found out in their last match. Canterbury will look to their loose trio that includes Harmon and Cullen Grace to dominate the Tasman pack. We are backing the visitors to win by more than 10 points.
