Back playing: Israel Dagg showed
some classy touches in his valuable
30 minutes of game time in Pirates'
21-14 win over Havelock North in
the Maddison Trophy final on
The Hawke's Bay Magpies are set
to welcome back to the fold cap-
tain Mike Coman and All Black
Israel Dagg -- albeit briefly -- for
the much anticipated clash
against ITM Cup premiership
leaders Bay of Plenty in Rotorua
this Saturday night.
The return of their two injured
stars should further buoy the
Magpies who bounced back in
style from the mid-week defeat
against Tasman to claim their sec-
ond premiership scalp of the
season, a comprehensive 40-20
drubbing of Wellington in Napier
last Friday night.
Magpies co-coach Peter Russell
said Coman would undergo
further tests on his back this week
but was a likely'' starter against
BOP, while Dagg would defi-
nitely'' play after making a
30-minute cameo for Napier
Pirates in their Maddison Trophy
victory on Saturday.
That was always a part of
[Dagg's] rehab plan when he was
released back to us. But I guess
the difficult thing for us is that we
have our combinations in place,
and where do we fit him in to get
some game time -- because he
really does need it.''
Dagg's stay will be short-lived
however, with the classy back due
to depart immediately afterwards
to join the All Blacks squad in
South Africa before next
weekend's Tri Nations clash in
Port Elizabeth, where All Blacks
medical staff will continue his
He'll be here one weekend,
then he's straight on the plane to
South Africa -- just like that.''
Russell said the plan would be
to ambush BOP, who have only a
short four-day turnaround before
they take on the Magpies, who in
contrast will have had the relative
luxury of a week off since the six
tries to two defeat of Wellington.
Second-five Andrew Horrell was
in superb form against Welling-
ton, scoring two tries, two
conversions and two penalties for
a 20-point haul in match the home
side never looked like losing.
The Magpies had the game all
but wrapped up by halftime at
McLean Park, thanks to Horrell's
double and further five-pointers.
The 23-10 half-time advantage
would have been even greater for
the Magpies had Horrell not
missed a penalty and two
Kirkpatrick failed to convert the
final two tries of the half.
Hawke's Bay 40 (Karl Lowe,
