Breakers vs Hawks, Oct 10
Breakers kick their season off at Vector with the Hawks visiting on Thursday.
Before the game they will raise their 3rd Championship Banner and also retire Dillon Bouchers number (24).
Boucher will become only the second Breaker behind club stalwart and good mate, Paulie Henare to have their number retired.
The Hawks have become a bit of a bogey team for NZ and always provide a stern challenge and will hopefully have their chances bolstered by a second import.
With Bouchers number being retired I would be surprised if this game doesn't sell out which along with raising a championship banner has not generally provided the Breakers with much good luck, last season they raised one in front of the Wildcats and a sold out NSEC and then proceeded to get their asses kicked.
Thoughts on the result?
I think NZ will either lose by 10 or more or will win by 5 or less.
