Soffe Cup resumes on Saturday with competition leaders Huatoki taking on sixth placed Hareb Deken Oakura, third placed Farmlands Okaiawa/Manaia are at home to fourth placed Inglewood Club Inglewood whilst second placed RE/MAX Pukekura Park host fifth placed Central Finance Rotokare.

Huatoki will have an easy time of it on the men's side but Oakura will put up stiff opposition on the ladies half of the competition.  Huatoki will have Alistair Nairn, Dave Innes and Jayden Harrison as their top three complemented by Sophie Robertson, Ellen O'Byrne, Chris Wilson and Erin Annabell.

Okaiawa/Manaia have Hamish Mead making his season debut at No.1 and he will take on Mal Masters.  Mark Laurence drops to No.2 and will play Luke Brown.  Josh Murdoch and Andrew Baylis make up the remainder of the combined teams' menís side and they will have a tough matchup against Campbell Mace and Derek Spurdle.  Grace Kelly will take on Krystal Oakes at No.1 and Oakes will be looking to reaffirm her dominance with a repeat victory over Kelly.  Lauren Fraine, Caroline Jackson and Georgia Jackson will take on the Spurdle siblings, Maria, Michaela and Alex.

A full strength Pukekura side will be looking for a big result against Rotokare,  Shaun Alborough will take on Kyle Crowley in the No.1 match.  Mat Garnham, David Barnard and Thomson Matuku should be too strong for Shane Devlin, John Lehman and Ben Fitzgibbon.  No respite for Rotokare in the ladies matches with Louise Waite, Kirsten Adam, Linda Reid and Rebecca Wormald fronting for Pukekura.  They will be looking for a clean sweep against Jane Symons, Julie farquar, Helena Goodin and Bridget Coleman.
