The Wellington Pride is looking to end their regular season on a high and break a two-game losing streak when they come up against Otago at Porirua Park on Sunday.

Straight off the back of a bye, Captain Joanah Ngan-Woo, says the team knows how important this game is.

“I feel like we are refreshed and ready to go. The bye also gave us time for injuries to recover, so I’m hoping we come out firing.”

Otago have some serious speedsters in their backline and their forwards never give up. We will have a very big battle on our hands this week.”
