Thursdays ITM Cup fixture, sees a crossover match at the Waikato Stadium, Hamilton, between Premiership Waikato Mooloos and the Southland Stags from the Championship. Both sides look as if they will be involved in a scrap to the end of the season to try and make the post-season play-offs. With the Mooloos currently just outside the top four in the top division, with 10 points, leaving them three adrift of the two sides immediately above them, the reigning Champions Taranaki who have played a game more, and Auckland, who scored 50 points against them in Hamilton in Week 4.
