Player of the day Carl Imlig in action against Kawerau. His fellow defenders Hamish and Husnul watch him play it out. Ben McPherson made a welcome return to the line-up. He is pursued by the defenders as he heads goalwards. Sione is waiting for the pass.
Carl again, linking up with Samuel Christieson down the right flank. Ex-Rangers player Sam Morris is the defender. Now we're in Rotorua, with quite a different line-up. Barrie Hawkes is playing centre back with Aaron Muggeridge. Bazza (POD) chips the ball forward. Jacob Heath is closest at left back. Carl was the only defender left from last week, out on the right!
Jimmy Hart throws down the line. Jordan Ogilvy does one of his turns that leaves the defender in his wake.
Now Jords is about to cross the ball, no doubt he can see someone to aim for! Sione Lotu puts plenty of pressure on a Rotorua defender, who is doing a good job of shielding the ball.
Sione takes on his man.
