Off the back of a strong performance against Otago, the Bay of Plenty Steamers will take on Waikato in the Bayleys Battle of the Kaimais on Saturday afternoon.

In a highly-contested final Mitre 10 Cup round robin match at the Tauranga Domain, the Barrett Homes charity match day in support of Trillian Trek will have plenty to offer.

It will be a fantastic family day out with plenty of giveaways and excitement in the Whanau Zone, plus kids eat free in the Whanau Zone with their kids' ticket thanks to Mount Maunganui New World.

With More FM on hand to paint the crew in their blue and gold, a tasty bite to eat from Little Big Markets, a cold brew from Mount Brewing Co. and plenty of thrilling rugby action, including the Bay of Plenty Under 15s taking on the Waikato Under 15s, it is one not to be missed.

The Bay of Plenty Steamers, coached by Clayton McMillan, are on the hunt to confirm their Mitre 10 Cup Championship semi-final spot and the team are calling on Bay of Plenty supporters to come out in their blue and gold to raise their voices over the Mooloo bells this weekend.

Tickets are available online for all Steamers Mitre 10 Cup home games at or

Alternatively tickets can be purchased from the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union offices, at any Ticketmaster outlet or at the gate on game day. Adults $20, students $10, children under 14 $5 and under 5s attend free. Additional ticketing fees will apply.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
