Wellington XV team to go on bull run on Friday

A Wellington XV side meets a Taranaki Bulls squad at Cooks Gardens in Whanganui on Friday afternoon in a National Provincial Championship pre-season fixture.

Kick-off is 2.05pm in the river city. Taranaki rugby are live-streaming the match, with commentary.

The Wellington team will be playing a separate XV in each half, with lock-flanker Caleb Delany the only player playing both halves.

The match thus won’t have first-class status.

The naming of the Wellington Lions squad for the upcoming NPC is imminent.  Their first NPC competition match is against the Northland Taniwha at Wellington on Saturday 7 August.

It is unclear if the players who’s clubs are still involved in the Jubilee and Hardham Cups will be suiting up for their clubs in the semi-finals on Saturday. We will find out when teamlists are named on Friday morning.

The Wellington players involved in this match are:

First Half Number Second Half
Xavier Numia 1 Fraser Armstrong
Bruce Kauika-Petersen 2 Wiirangi Parata
Johnathon Fuimoano 3 Bradley Crichton
James Blackwell 4 Caleb Delany
Dominic Bird 5 Josh To’omaga
Caleb Delany 6 Sione Halalilo
Du’Plessis Kirifi 7 Sam Smith
Keelan Whitman 8 Dominic Ropeti
Connor Collins 9 Richard Judd
Brandyn Laursen 10 Malo Manuao
Pepesana Patafilo 11 Joseph Faleafaga
Peter Umaga-Jensen 12 Reon Paul
Vince Aso 13 Tomasi Alosio
Julian Savea 14 Roderick Solo
Wes Goosen 15 Sam Reid
