Steelers get second shot at Shield this season

8:31 am on 15 October 2010

Counties Manukau have a rare chance to make a second bid in one season for the Ranfurly Shield when they play Canterbury on Saturday afternoon.

The Steelers pushed Southland hard in round three of the provincial rugby championship, but the Stags held onto the Shield until last weekend, when Canterbury took it home.

Howecer, the Steelers seldom win in Christchurch and coach Milton Haig says his side will be massive underdogs.
