Wangas Wins Wild One v H-K 39-34
This one went back and forth in the first 40 with the sides knotted at 15-15 at the break before Wanganui seized the initiative, and a 4 try bonus point, in the early second half. The locals came back with a couple of tries to make it interesting before the Butchers wrapped it up with minutes left with Brown going in under the sticks.

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.
