Week Five Review

Hey fam! We are winding down to the business end of the tournament with only one week left of round robin play to go.

Check out the results for week five below.

Auckland Storm v Bay of Plenty Volcanix  29-34

Waikato v Manawatu Cyclones     31-08

North Harbour Hibiscus v Wellington Pride    10-50

Taranaki Whio v Otago Spirit     0-65

Canterbury v Counties Power Heat    39-22

Hawkes Bay Tuis v Tasman Mako     47-12

Week five saw the upset of the round with the Bay of Plenty Volcanix holding onto their first-ever win over the Auckland Storm. This puts Auckland in the very real position of getting relegated to the Championship for next season if they don’t win their final game against Canterbury.

It’s still up in the air with the top four teams as none of them has cemented a home semifinal. Any team place second, third or fourth could potentially leapfrog the leaders in week six.

Check out some of the highlights for the Auckland Storm v Bay of Plenty Volcanix below.

Thanks to Sky Sport for the coverage.
