Air New Zealand Cup - Round 1 Highlights

Air New Zealand Cup - Round 1 Highlights

As you now know, New Zealand's domestic rugby competition, the Air New Zealand Cup, kicked off last weekend around the country as the best provincial sides met.

Some great rugby was played with a whole bunch of excellent tries, which is what we've got for you today.

The much anticipated return of Dan Carter couldnt help his sides cause as Canterbury actually surprisingly lost to North Harbour 22-19. Carter was impressive though, landing four penalties, a conversion, and showing his usual tactical kicking prowess.

He showed no signs of favouring or protecting the leg which he injured six months ago, which will be great to hear for All Black fans.

We won't go into detail about every match, but we've got 8 minutes worth of exciting action, including a few stand out tries that are sure to impress.

Enjoy, and let us know if you have a favourite try. There's a few classics in there.
