Greer Muir has earned the number eight position for her first start of Sky Super Rugby Aupiki. The back line remains similar to Round Two, but with Terauoriwa Gapper starting at first five.

 

 

Matatū are looking to finish the competition on a high note, after some hard-fought battles in the opening two rounds.

 

Head Coach Blair Baxter said the athletes were really looking to lift for their last match this weekend.

 

“The team is stoked to have both vice-captains back on the field with them this week, they offer a lot of leadership and experience and it’s been great to have them connect back in with the group,” he said.

 

“It will be a chance for us to leave everything out on the field as the inaugural squad for Matatū, and the team has been working really hard to ensure we put a proud performance on the field on Sunday.”

 

The Round Three match is scheduled to kick off at 5.05pm, Sunday 20th March, at FMG Stadium in Hamilton. The match will be televised live on Sky Sport and is also available to watch on Prime.
