Tasman vs Northland Predictions

Tasman have been inconsistent this season but they face a Northland side that have struggled in their last two fixtures. I am backing the hosts to cover the -9 handicap.

Head to Head

Tasman have won their last three matches against Northland. The last of which was a 52-6 thrashing in 2019.

Tasman Form

Tasman are fourth in the Evens Conference of the NPC on 19 points from eight matches. That includes three wins and five defeats. Victory here could push them up a place should North Harbour lose.

It has been an inconsistent season from the Tasman outfit. Over their last four matches they have won two and lost two but their failure to put back-to-back wins together has cost them.

Last week Tasman went down 30-27 to Auckland at Eden Park. Prior to that Tasman beat Taranaki 38-27 at home, lost 25-19 at home to Wellington and beat bottom feeders Manawatu 36-26.

Tasman Injuries & Team News

Tasman are a plucky side who are capable of producing very strong performances. The issue is that there is no consistency but I do not foresee wholesale changes this weeknd.

Northland Form

Northland are a place below Tasman in the table but they do have a game in hand. With four wins from their seven matches Northland have a real chance to charge up the table if they can put a couple of wins together.

The concern for Northland will be that they won four of their opening five matches but have now lost their last two quite heavily. At one point they were challenging at the top of the table.

After beating Auckland 23-22 at home, Northland lost 46-17 at Canterbury and 48-21 at home to North Harbour last week. Both performances were well below their standards from earlier in the campaign.

Northland Injuries & Team News

Northland are going to need to change things up if they are to get back to winning ways. Two heavy defeats should result in some changes.
