Round 11 of the Van’s Premier Men’s division looks set to start off today with a cracker of a game when top-of-the-table Tupapa Maraerenga take on second-place Puaikura. With 9 points separating both teams the winner will secure a psychological victory heading into the last few rounds of the competition.

It is a perfect chance for Tupapa Maraerenga to stretch their lead and dent the hopes of their closest pursuer Puaikura.

Puaikura is a formidable side. Physically challenging and combined with skills and endurance, it can really test their opponents.

Pekay Edwards, Conroy and Dwayne Tiputoa are the main threats for the home side, in a crucial contest for two sides chasing higher honours.

For the visitors, Geosah George, and Grover Harmon maintain their consistent goal-scoring feats which make them a threat across the park.

Both sides are famed for their defensive capabilities, so it will be interesting to see which can open the other up in the attacking third. All eyes will be on key players from both teams.

No doubt Tupapa Maraerenga would like to continue their winning form and get another win in against Puaikura.
