Their American imports have been making all the difference. Even though Taranaki are without their main center Tai Wynyard and role player Richard Rodger, they still possess more than enough firepower to beat any team in the league.
Taranaki Airs vs. Nelson Giants Prediction
At home the Airs will be more than a worthy opponent. Nelson are facing their second must-win game in just a couple of days after a very tough defeat in Wellington.
