Air New Zealand Cup - Round 4 Highlights

Air New Zealand Cup - Round 4 Highlights

We have another cracking tries package for you today, from round 4 of the always entertaining Air New Zealand Cup's action from last weekend.

We featured young star flyhalf Aaron Cruden a few days ago, and he can be seen with a nice run for the first try for Manawatu as they faced Otago in Palmerston North.

They maintained their strong start to the season by winning 19-12, with two tries to Casey Stone, and one to impressive fullback Kurt Baker.

Powerful Otago wing Karne Hesketh scored after bashing over the line, then set up fullback Ben Smith for a great counter attacking try.

Northland picked up a 26-23 away win over North Harbour, with their young right wing Brook Gilmore scoring a well deserved breakaway try after an intercept that left him with a lot of work to do.

Canterbury beat Tasman 25-21 in Christchurch, with wing Sean Maitland scoring a nice try, showing his footballing skills on the way to the line. Dan Carter wasn't playing, but his stand in Stephen Brett scored a classy try from some way out.

Powerhouse wing Hosea Gear crossed for Wellington in their 16-15 win over Auckland, as did an unlikely source on the other wing - prop John Schwalger. Big Auckland number nine Taniela Moa linked well with Paul Williams to take a return pass and score a great try.

Counties-Manukau winger Sherwin Stowers electrified their backline against Taranaki, as he set up a try for fullback Ahsee Tuala, then cracked on the pace to slide through a gap and score himself.

Wow, that was a great series of tries from the Air NZ Cup - better than usual it seemed like. Those guys were all pretty good at cutting through the defense.

...definitely looked like obstruction/blocking for that first Otago try, though.

That's David Smith in the pic..

And 'Anonymous', who thinks he's the only one on planet earth.. you need a name cause it just makes everything easier for everyone, especially when discussions are had. Otherwise you're just a nobody.

RD likes to randomly remove anonymous comments too.. so if you actually want your comment read/kept, pick a name.

Fantastic tries. Great tournament so far.
