The first trial against Wests will show what gains have been made with head coach Paul Dillon faced with moulding a side from the young and restless with many of the old guard retiring.

Campese Oval will host a match between the Brumby Runners and the Auckland Academy on Friday night at 5.30pm and then on Sunday March 3 there will be a Super W game at Seiffert Oval.
