The 2010 ITM Cup season was the fifth season since the competition reconstruction in 2006. For the ITM Cup competition it involved the top 14 provincial unions of New Zealand. The tournament was won by Canterbury, who defeated Waikato 33–13 in the competition final. For sponsorship reasons, the competition was known as the ITM Cup and it was currently the first season under the new sponsor. Including the defunct National Provincial Championship, this is the 34th season of New Zealand's premier domestic competition. The regular season matches took place from 29 July until 24 October – followed by the semi-finals that culminated in the final on 5 November.

Competition format[edit]

Covering fifteen weeks, the schedule featured a total of 91 matches. The competition was the decider for the top seven sides that will become part of the top table of New Zealand domestic table via the Premiership, whilst the bottom seven sides will form the Championship. The regular season consisted of two types of matches:

  • a. Each team played 13 matches against all other Provincial Unions in the competition over 13 consecutive weeks; and
  • b. Each team played six home and seven away or seven home and six away matches.

The four teams, moved on to the finals. The top two winners, based on table points, received a home semi-final. In the first round of the finals, the semi-finals, the first-placed winner hosted the fourth-placed winner and the second-placed winner hosted the third-placed winner. The final is hosted by the top remaining seed.[1]

Round 9[edit]

  • Southland achieved their first ever win against Auckland in a Ranfurly Shield game, and also their first win against Auckland since 1971.
  • The Canterbury game against Wellington was offered free of charge, attracting the largest crowd of the season (30,000). This was done in response to the Canterbury earthquake of 4 September.
