Atu Moli has been released by the All Blacks for this game. He hasn't played since the SR semi-final due to a foot injury.

Surprised to see in that last run that Guildford was a bit faster than Reece (and the Manawatu player). Zac certainly hasn't lost a lot of pace, yet.
Messy game, btw. High error rate. Manawatu looking the stronger side.
Half time: Waikato 5 - 3 Manawatu. The only try was scored by Pita Ahki.
Try Waikato. Samisoni Taukei’aho over after a line-out maul. Guildford off injured (hamstring).
Waikato now lead 10-3.
After converted tries to Jamie Booth and Harrison Brewer, as well as 2 penalty goals, Manawatu finishes on top at full time: 23-10. Very uninspiring match, esp from Waikato.
