National leader Judith Collins and Labour's Jacinda Ardern went head-to-head on a raft of issues - in the first televised leaders debate of the election campaign on Tuesday.
Collins said she'd had feedback from people in her hometown that they liked she "tells it straight" and said she really enjoyed the debate.
Some commentators have said Ardern appeared a little lacklustre - the Labour leader rejected this critique.
"I actually felt pretty invigorated out there actually. No, I didn't feel that way at all. But I would say it's one of four," said Ardern.
"I think over the course of the debates, nobody will be left in any question as to our style, the leadership we bring and the ideas we have."
Newstalk ZB political editor Barry Soper joined Heather du Plessis-Allan to share his thoughts on who he thought came out on top.
