The 2015 season hits its final stretch this weekend, with the Swifts and Reserves beginning a run of three consecutive home games while two teams head to Hamilton on the hunt for silverware.
Saturday’s double header at the Domain sees Waikato Stud Matamata Swifts host Old Blues from Tauranga in the WaiBOP Premiership at 2.45pm. This match comes hot on the heels of our Richardson Racing Stables Swifts Reserves playing promotion chasing West Hamilton United in the WaiBOP Championship at 12.30pm.
The two Swifts sides lost narrowly to their opponents earlier in the season and will be hoping to overturn those results. A win to the Swifts would continue their rise up the table after two wins in the last two weeks, while the Reserves could have a say in the promotion race if they get something from the early game.
