It is North v South in New Zealand this weekend


The North v South teams have been named for this Saturdays match in Wellington.

On first look, as expected we see Beauden Barrett who will battle against Richie Mo’unga as well as his brother who will play in the number fifteen jumper.

For the North side we see five Blues players in the pack and it will be Barrett with Perenara who will start the match for the North with Smith on the bench.

Rieko Ioane has been named in the midfield alongside Anton Lienert-Brown with a back three of class in Caleb Clarke, Sevu Reece and Damian McKenzie.

The South side have plenty of Crusaders players with only Nepo Laulala the odd one out in the tight five.
There are a lot of skill and pace in the South backs with players like George Bridge, Will Jordan, Jordie Barrett with Jack Goodhue and Braydon Ennor in the centres.
Brad Weber got the nod at nine and will partner with halfback inside of Mo’unga.
