Wanganui have had seven players selected in the 24-man squad ahead of the Lochore Cup final this weekend.

Fellow finalists East Coast provide three players in the squad selected by head coach Grainger Heikell (Poverty Bay), his assistant Kurt McQuilkin (King Country) and former All Blacks selector Earle Kirton.

What did you make of this year's ITM Cup?

It was as good a season as I can remember.

It was great to see the smaller provinces perform well.

I caught the odd game here and there.

Sorry, it was an utter snore-fest.
