    The Otago rugby side has been able to ease into their preparations for the Bunnings NPC resumption

    The Otago rugby side has been able to ease into their preparations for the Bunnings NPC resumption


    Otago don't make an appearance until the third week back, as they were set to take on Counties Manukau and North Harbour in the original schedule this weekend and next.

    Coach Tom Donnelly says while most teams are scrambling to get match ready, they're making the most of the extra time.



    The NPC's first game back sees Waikato host Canterbury in Hamilton on Friday.
