After 11 terrific, fiercely contested rounds of NPD Tasman Trophy matches, the semi-finals are upon us and to be played this Saturday at 3pm. These matches are hosted by the top qualifying teams, Nelson and Marist. Marist and Waimea Old Boys finished 2nd equal on the points table, but Marist take the home semi privilege as they beat Waimea OB in their last match (the Nelson Bays Div 1 semi-final).
