Jamie Mackintosh has now played 99 ITM Cup matches and should bring up his 100 at New Plymouth on Saturday. He is not far off joining a small group – only three players are in it so far – who have played 100 ITM Cup matches and 100 Super rugby matches; the three are Caleb Ralph, Justin Collins and Chris King. Mackintosh made his debut for Southland in 2004 and could reach 100 Super rugby matches next season.
