Auckland Aces will take on Central Stags in the 28th match of the Super Smash 2021/22 at the Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday.
Auckland Aces have been very inconsistent in the league stages, and are involved in a desperate race for third spot. They come into this game knowing they cannot slip up. Auckland's fate is not completely in their hands, though, and they will be hoping Wellington lose their last league fixture.
Meanwhile, Central Stags have already been knocked out of the competition. They arrive into the game on the back of five successive losses. They are fifth in the standings, winning just three games and losing six.
