Although North Harbour are in fourth position in the Championship, they have managed only two wins during 2015, and accumulated nine points. They did manage to beat a Premiership side last week in another crossover contest in Albany., Albeit, it was against bottom of the ladder Counties-Manukau. The Makos faced their toughest task of the season in Round 5, when they travelled to face the unbeaten Wellington Lions, and emerged with their title credentials still in tact following their 36-17 victory.

Both teams have further tough challenges in front of them later in the week, with Harbour facing the Makos closest rivals, Canterbury Lambs, and the Makos themselves clashing with third placed Auckland. Victory is therefore, vitally important on Wednesday for both teams. However, it would be the shock of the season, if the Makos don't take another five points.
