Mitre 10 Cup semis confirmed

Date published: October 16 2016

The semi-finals for this season's Mitre 10 Cup have been confirmed, with Canterbury set to take on Counties Manukau in successive weeks.

After losing in Pukekohe on Saturday – a game the Cantabs didn't need to win – they will look to exact revenge over the Steelers on Sunday.

In the other semi-final, Taranaki, who finished second in the Premiership, will host a dangerous Tasman outfit in what should be a thriller.

The Championship semis see Otago kick things off against Bay of Plenty on Friday before Wellington take on North Harbour on Saturday.
