Te Kuiti shearer James Fagan - fresh from success at the Merino Shears last weekend - will be back in action at the Waimate Shears on Saturday.
Fagan won the open title at both the Merino Shears in Alexandra and the Waitaki Mackenzie Merino Shears in Omarama last month.
In Waimate, he will face strong competition from Nathan Stratford, of Invercargill, who has won the title for the past four years.
Wool-handling heats and semifinals will be held at Russell Hart's woolshed on Gumtree Flat Rd, with the finals and all shearing events at Waimate Stadium.
