Wangas Gets Decent Heartland Draw
The Butcherboys, under returning coach Jason Caske,y have been handed one of the more friendly round-robin draws in recent seasons.

First up is an away game against local rivals Horowhenua-Kapiti in Levin where the Butchers will be seeking a measure of revenge for the poor 23-34 loss in week 2 last year.

Week 2 we are back at Cooks for what a match-up against Meads double winners Mid Canterbury, an important early test of where we are as a squad.

Week 3 sees our only South Island excursion of the round-robin with an away match against North Otago in Oamaru, where the locals will be wanting payback for our Lochore heist.

Next up is what will likely be a tight one against the much improved Buller boys - crucially at home given our struggles in Westport in recent years.

Week 5 we are at home again versus King Country. If we nail the Rams and deal to Buller we will likely be sitting close to a Meads Cup place rolling into an away game against the Swamp Foxes in Paeroa and a week 7 date with Poverty Bay at home.

We will not want to be chasing points heading to Masterton for the final round-robin match.
