Canterbury may have failed to make last season's Grand Final after six successive ITM Cup titles, but they have come back in 2015 with a steely determination of which all their main rivals should be extremely wary.

While last season's runners-up, Tasman Makos, have grabbed most of the headlines, and have topped the table since Round 1, Canterbury have gone about their business with a ruthless efficiency. Like Tasman, they won their first six matches, and had sat in second place on the ladder for the whole season. However, on Wednesday, the Lambs face the Waikato Mooloos at the AMI Stadium in Christchurch, with a chance to hit the top spot, following Tasman's home defeat by Auckland on Sunday.

Waikato were blanked in New Plymouth last week by Taranaki, and it would be a major surprise if they run the Lambs close in Christchurch. Their three wins in the Premiership, appears as if it will be good enough to keep them in the top tier for 2016, but they are way of the play-off pace. A win on Wednesday, will set the Lambs up for the challenges ahead, as they face Taranaki at home on Sunday, and then Tasman away in Round 8.
