ITM Cup in New Zealand - Highlights from Round 8

ITM Cup in New Zealand - Highlights from Round 8

The ITM Cup heads into another round of action as we near the weekend, so its time to catch up with the tries and highlights from Round 8. The feedback has been pretty positive, so heres another enjoyable ten minute package of tries and highlights.

Southland continued their good run as they beat Waikato 7-6 in a hard fought, low scoring match in Hamilton. Kendrick Lynne crossed for another try, the only one of the match. Stephen Donald came on for Waikato and had two chances to win the game, but missed both.

Auckland also occupy a top three slot as they beat Manawatu 32-6, scoring a bonus point in the process. Taranaki upset Canterbury 31-20 in one of the games of the weekend, with some wonderful tries scored by both sides.

Wellington got a 17-13 win over Hawkes Bay in another game that had some sensational tries scored. The first went to Hawkes Bays Kahn Fotualii, possibly the team try of the weekend, but Hosea Gear showed his pace and power again as he scored a great try of his own. He then also set up Lima Sopaga, who finished superbly.

North Harbour came good over Tasman, winning 28-21, while Otago and Northland battled it out at Dunedin, with Rene Ranger doing his bit to help set up the winning try for captain Jared Payne. Final score in that one, 13-8.

Another classic was Bay of Plentys 24-21 win over Counties Manukau on Sunday, as they came back from being 14-0 down to get themselves back in the game and eventually score late to sneak the win.
