Canterbury host top of the log Hawkes Bay on Saturday, and we feel the bookies might be reading to much in to the log standings. The depth of this Canterbury squad should be enough to cover this spread.
The cap opened at -1.5 and has moved out quite a bit since. Hawkes bay is coming off a shield defence last week, which is always tiring, and they’ve lost their main man in Ash Dixon. We’re expecting their bodies to be feeling it after a massive defensive effort last week, with Canterbury going all in to get higher on the log.
