Magpies v Southland

What a way to kick start the Magpies 2017 Mitre 10 Cup with a Saturday afternoon kick off in the Hawke’s Bay Sun against the Southland Stags. The home side will want to get quickly into their work knowing that momentum is everything in this competition. Magpies-Stags games are always a fierce battle and the 2017 version promises to be the same, especially with both teams coming off less than expected 2016 campaigns. Ex Magpie and McLean park favourite Ryan Tongia has signed for the Stags alongside long-time Hastings Rugby and Sports midfielder Neira Fomai which should add some additional spice to the match. And both players will be out to show the Magpies coaching staff what they have been missing. Great game for the family to see fantastic daytime footy including not one but two curtain-raisers; Hawke’s Bay Samoans v Wellington Samoans and the final of the Unison 1st XV final.
