New Zealand's Super Saturday
It's Super Saturday with Auckland and Napier hosting back-to-back NRL Telstra Premiership matches this weekend – the first time New Zealand has hosted two NRL games on the same day.
The Warriors will be looking to cement their place in the top eight when they take on the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland on Saturday afternoon.
Immediately following, Napier's McLean Park will host its first ever NRL match when the Melbourne Storm go up against the St George Illawarra Dragons. All four teams are packed with Kiwi internationals including the Warriors' Shaun Johnson and Simon Mannering, Storm's Jesse Bromwich, Kevin Proctor and Tohu Harris, Dragons' Jason Nightingale and Benji Marshall and Sea Eagles' Kieran Foran and Steve Matai.
NRL Head of Marketing Lewis Pullen urged fans in New Zealand to take advantage of this Super Saturday of Rugby League with all four teams capable of producing extraordinary play.
"These two high quality matches will be even better if big crowds are on hand to create an electric atmosphere," Mr Pullen said.
"We all know Kiwis love their NRL, and Rugby League is even better when you're at the game, so I urge fans to get along," he said.
