Two home games in a week, played at 2 different grounds and with 2 different outcomes.

Let's start with Wednesday's game against Southland at Baypark. Firstly, Wednesday is a stupid night to play rugby and I'm not sure why they bother making every team do it once per season just to shave a week off the duration - why not just start a week earlier or finish a week later?

Remember the home games we had when the mighty Steamers used to be mighty and lurked around the top of the table. Some inferior province would turn up, compete vigorously and we would win comfortably despite not playing all that well. Happy days.

We won! Yes, wins have been so rare in recent years that we should celebrate each and every one of them - even when it is against Harbour. We did beat them last year at home as well so it is a bit early to say we have turned the corner.

In tbardoulheir final pre-season match ahead of next Friday’s ITM Cup fixture against North Harbour, the Bay of Plenty Steamers took on the Manawatu Turbos at the Tauranga Domain this afternoon, following a successful training camp in Whangamata. Head Coach Clayton McMillan’s focus for the match was same as last week, with the teams focus directed at achieving small team goals, and to see some individual and collective intent.

It was a game of two halves, with two Bay of Plenty teams selected to face the visiting team, providing the players the final opportunity to put their hand up for a starting spot in the first ITM Cup match of the season against North Harbour next Friday at ASB Baypark Stadium.
