their final home game against
Counties-Manukau at Napier's
McLean Park this Sunday after-
noon, after spoiling Bay of
Plenty's centenary celebrations
with an emphatic 32-13 ITM
Cup win in Rotorua on Saturday
The Magpies were bolstered
by the brief return of All Black
flyers Zac Guildford and Israel
Dagg, who helped themselves to
three of the Magpies' four tries
in a classy display before jetting
off to South Africa to join the All
Blacks Tri-Nations squad.
The Magpies made a fast start
in Rotorua, nicking a Bay of
Plenty lineout, turning a ruck
over and chasing hard as
Guildford burst through.
With the defence under pres-
sure, Hawke's Bay halfback
Kahn Fotuali'i shot through a
gap and scored under the posts.

The Steamers lost captain
Colin Bourke and wing Lelia
Masaga to injury but managed
to claw back three points
through a Waenga penalty.
Guildford sealed things for
the visitors after a torrid second
half, however, latching onto a
Dagg break with 11 minutes left
and racing in to score, and then
nabbing the bonus-point try
with time up on the clock.
