The Black Ferns play their final match of 2020 against the NZ Barbarians this afternoon in a double header game with the Bay of Plenty Steamers vs Tasman in the Premiership semi-final.

Both games will be played at Trafalgar Park in Nelson with the Black Ferns v NZ Barbarians kicking off at 4.35pm and the Premiership semi-final kicking off at 7.05pm.

Excited fans have been watching the Steamers make a strong comeback wtih a 53-35 win over Manawatū in Palmerston North followed by the stunning 44-8 demolition of Canterbury in Tauranga. Then came victories over Hawke’s Bay, Waikato and North Harbour, and just like that the Steamers ended up in third spot.
