An exciting season of domestic rugby has come to a close with six scintillating finals closing out the 2017 season of national provincial championships.

Canterbury claimed the double, winning Mitre 10 Cup Premiership Final in Christchurch last night and the Farah Palmer Cup Premiership in Pukekohe today.

New Zealand Rugby Chief Executive Steve Tew congratulated all teams involved in the finals.

“Year after year our competitions never fail to disappoint. We were treated to some great finals rugby this weekend and I congratulate Canterbury, Wellington, Bay of Plenty, Wanganui and Mid Canterbury for their wins.

“A special congratulations to Canterbury. They continue to set the standard in the Mitre 10 Cup with their third title in as many years. They can also be proud of their first ever women’s provincial championship title after showing exceptional determination to upset the defending champions on their home turf,” said Tew.

Wellington have won promotion into the 2018 Premiership after taking out a thrilling extra-time Championship Final against Bay of Plenty on Friday night.

“Wellington fully deserve the title after a big season and I am sure their supporters will look forward to next season in the Premiership. Credit must also go to Bay of Plenty for their part in what was an incredible final.”

Bay of Plenty won the first Farah Palmer Cup Championship Final in Mt Maunganui yesterday.

“Bay of Plenty have shown great improvement this season and it will be great to see them step up to the Premiership next year.”

The Heartland Championship Finals once again produced great rugby with Wanganui winning the Meads Cup and Mid Canterbury claiming the Lochore Cup.

“The Heartland Championship is a great competition and once again we saw that. Congratulations to Wanganui, Mid Canterbury and all their supporters for their success in 2017”.

With just eight matches to play before we head into play offs, Mitre 10 Cup fans will be treated to an enthralling weekend of action.

After a scintillating Ranfurly Shield victory over Canterbury, Taranaki will kick off week 9 with a challenge against old foes Manawatu. The winner will not only lock away the Log o Wood for the summer but will also claim valuable competition points.

While the premiership semi finalists are confirmed, just where those matches will be played is yet to be determined. In the championship, Wellington have assured themselves home advantage, behind them Northland, Bay of Plenty, Manawatu and Otago are seperated by just four points.

Stalwart referee Shane 'Gappie' McDermott will referee his 83rd and final first class fixture when he officiates the North Harbour v Taranaki match on Sunday.
