Crucial Match Dates Album

The NZRU has issued the match dates for 2012 NPC and Schools Top 4 National Championship .

The Schools Top 4 National Championship is being held in Palmerston North on Friday 7th September and Sunday 9th September with the final being curtain raiser to the Manawatu v Tasman Men’s NPC game which hopefully will persuade Sky Television to televise this game live, with then already having television cameramen at the venue.

The Women’s NPC now  kicks off on 8th September (with Otago rejoining the NPC ) which means the first round clashes with Top 4 Schools National Championships. The final of NPC will be held on 27th October as curtain raiser to the Men’s Final so ensures the game will be directly televised again which is great news. Last year the NPC Competition Final was held 12 weeks before the Black Ferns played its first test against England ( due to the Rugby World Cup being held in New Zealand ) so with this year the gap only being four weeks will be far more acceptable to the Black Ferns.
