Piri Weepu try for the Maoris after a nice run from Hosea Gear

Piri Weepu try for the Maoris after a nice run from Hosea Gear

New Zealand Maori got their Pacific Nations Cup campaign off to a winning start with a 20-9 win over Tonga at Albany Stadium on Saturday.

In a game characterised by heavy tackles and penalty kicks the New Zealanders managed to get the better of their visitors as both teams threw all the weight they possessed at each other.

The try of the match was then scored in the 72nd minute by halfback Piri Weepu after he received an offload from wing Hosea Gear who had busted tackles all the way down the touchline.

Note: We'll bring you highlights of the other internationals from the weekend as soon as we can.
