Southland vs Canterbury Tips


Canterbury have won their last two matches and should be too strong for the winless Southland. I am backing the visitors to cover the -15 handicap.

Head to Head


Canterbury have won four of their last five matches against Southland. They last met in August 2020 where Canterbury romped to a 80-0 home win.

Southland Form


Southland have not had a good start to the season as they find themselves fifth in the Championship division. They have lost both of their matches thus far, picking up a solitary bonus point along the way.

On the opening weekend of the National Provincial Championship, Southland traveled to Otago where they lost 26-19. The bonus point for losing by less than seven was hardly a consolation.

That was followed by a 31-11 home defeat to Bay of Plenty. Southland were outplayed from start to finish and hardly had a sniff in the game.

Southland Injuries & Team News


Southland have no reported injury concerns. They are expected to be at full strength as they seek their first win of the season.

Canterbury Form


Canterbury are fourth in the Premiership division of the National Rugby Championship with two wins from their three matches. It is very congested at the top at the moment but victory here could steer Canterbury closer to the top.

Canterbury started the season with a 35-24 defeat at Auckland but they bounced back to beat Manawatu 25-22 at home in round two. 

New Zealand stopped all sport after round two due to the COVID-19 outbreak within the country. The NPC started up again last week in round seven which saw Canterbury sneak over the line in a 20-19 win away to Waikato.

Canterbury Injuries & Team News


Canterbury are missing a number of players to international duty. They remain a strong outfit and with no injury concerns, will be looking for all five points here.
