Great Wellington try finished by Tane Tu'ipolotu

Great Wellington try finished by Tane Tu'ipolotu

Wellington produced a slick 48-12 win over Bay of Plenty in the Air Zealand Cup on Saturday afternoon. With the two sides unbeaten until round four, the match was surprisingly one sided and produced some great moments of running rugby.

Hosea Gear picked up a hatrick on the way to placing his side at the top of the table, but probably the most enjoyable try to watch was this one, finished by Newcastle Falcons new signing Tane Tu'ipulotu.

Started by the dynamic Corey Jane deep in their half, the neat chip and regather was shifted through the hands with all the skill and class of a team at the top of their game. The running lines and timing of the offloads were great to see, and the unselfish manner in which Gear offloaded to Tu'ipulotu is probably indicative of the feeling in the side at the moment.

An interesting thing to note is that the counter attack came after Bay of Plenty took a rushed quick lineout (under the new rules), which can at times amount to a lot of disorganisation on defence, particularly if you end up kicking the ball away.
