After an embarrassing loss in the inaugural series last year, the Country has gone one up against the Sky Pacific Blues (Town) in a spectacular show on Saturday at Turangi Field.
THE COUNTRY side for the second Vaka of Origin cricket series that gets underway next week had its opening trials on Saturday last week at Turangi Field.
