Otumoetai need wins in WaiBOP double header against Papamoa

posted in: News

Otumoetai and Papamoa meet in a WaIBOP Premiership/Championship double header on Saturday with the home side badly needing to win both.

In the Premiership, Otumoetai need the three points against fourth-placed Papamoa to stay in touch with the competition’s two leaders, Waikato Unicol and Taupo.

In the Championship, Otumoetai sit second and any slip-up to Papamoa will benefit leaders Unicol and third-placed Cambridge.

Meanwhile, Otumoetai United look to have the WaiBOP W-League in the bag, after stretching their lead to 11 points.
