The Richmond Premiers take on traditional rival Otahuhu Leopards at Grey Lynn Park this Saturday. Coach Ming Mafoe has made a number of changes to his team struggling on injury and form over the past two weekends. Powerhouse wingers MafolaTimaloa and Debarres Neemia-Tanu partner up with strike centres Cale Baker and Marcus Auva’a this weekend. Highly competitive player Josh Mana and young gun Damon Niko form a new halves combination bringing with them confidence and x-factor. The forward pack has been rotated with Josh Siaosi and Harry Vete starting in the back row. They will be well supported by tireless utility players Bronson Harden and Joe Alesi who will bring plenty of punch from the bench. Captain Karl Simeti will need a huge effort from his forward pack that will rely heavily on Vice-captain Siliga Kepaoa’s strength and courage. The Premiers will need all the support they can get as they take on a very tough and well drilled team with experience and fire power right across the field. So get on down this Saturday afternoon at Grey Lynn Park, 2.30pm kick off. Premier 1st kick off at 12.45pm.
