Hawke's Bay face bold Auckland challenge



Auckland have their best chance in nearly seven years to lift the Ranfurly Shield when they face holders Hawke's Bay at McLean Park in Napier.

Auckland, sitting third in the Premiership, are coming off a 28-19 win over previously unbeaten Tasman on Sunday while Hawke's Bay top the second-tier Championship competition after beating Bay of Plenty 23-17 last week.

Auckland have successfully challenged for the Ranfurly Shield 16 times, and have defended it 148 times compared to the Magpies' more modest five tenures and 55 defences.

Thursday's defence will be Hawke's Bay's 11th since winning the Shield off Counties Manukau in Pukekohe just over a year ago.
