All Soffe Cup matches in the opening week of Round 2 tomorrow are in South Taranaki. As many teams are not full strength it is impossible to predict team line -ups.
Joint competition leader Central Finance Rotokare should have a big win at Okaiawa against the Lockwood Design and Build sponsored wooden spooners. In the first round it was a 14-2 win to Rotokare.
Hareb Deken Motors Oakura who are tied with Rotokare should have a comfortable win against McDonald Real Estate Matapu . In the first round it was a 15-1 win to Oakura.
Third placed Sandfords Manaia beat Hooker Pacific Pukekura 11-5 in the first round. Manaia should still win at home but it may be closer against the fouth placed side.
AWE Huatoki will be looking for a big win on Hawera's grass courts to go clear ahead of Matapu. They are currently equal fifith on 53 points. In the first round Hawera won 10-6 but Huatoki have a stronger men' s line up  team now.
