Air New Zealand Cup - Round 2 Highlights

Air New Zealand Cup - Round 2 Highlights

As Round 3 of the Air New Zealand Cup came to a close today, we take a look back at some of the best tries from Round 2 of New Zealand's main domestic competition.

While the tries scored in Round 2 possibly weren't as good as Round 1, it was an enjoyable few days of rugby. Dan Carter took the spotlight once again, as he put in a performance worthy of an All Black call up against Auckland.

Paul Williams, who later in the game smashed Carter with a suspension worthy shoulder, got on the scoresheet for Auckland with a try that came from some great build up play across the park.

Elsewhere, Northland beat Taranaki with flyhalf Lachie Munroe scoring 24 points, including a classy individual effort, and then later setting up Derek Carpenter for another try.

Tasman beat North Harbour with fullback Robbie Malneek finishing well, and Soseni Anesi scored an impressive individual try as Waikato beat Manawatu in Hamilton.

Tamati Ellison made a nice break for Wellington before setting up Hosea Gear for a nice try in their match against Hawke's Bay in Napier.

Flyer David Smith then finished off well after a wayward kick went straight to him, capping off our short look at the best of Round 2 of the Air New Zealand Cup.
