The Bunnings Warehouse NPC will continue next week for the Bay of Plenty when the team takes on Northland in Rotorua.

Originally scheduled to be played on Sunday, October 24, at Tauranga Domain, the match was postponed following the tragic passing of Bay of Plenty player Sean Wainui.

"To provide Northland with adequate preparation time for their mid-week match against Bay of Plenty, their Week 9 match this weekend against Southland at Rugby Park in Invercargill has been shifted forward one day to Saturday, October 30, (2.05pm kick off)," says a statement from New Zealand Rugby.

"As a result of this change, Otago’s non-competition match against Wellington at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin has been changed to Sunday, October 31, and has also been moved to the earlier time of 1.05pm."

Bay of Plenty will face Northland at Rotorua Stadium on Wednesday, November 3, at 7.05pm.
