Southland's great Ranfurly Shield win over Canterbury

Southland's great Ranfurly Shield win over Canterbury

Last weekend Southland captured the Ranfurly Shield as they wrestled it from the grasp of Canterbury in an epic game of ITM Cup rugby. They've already defended it, against Counties, but here is a quick look at last weekend's classic match.

The Southland Stags beat Canterbury 22-19 in a great game of rugby that had a bit of everything, and went right down to the wire, with flyhalf James Wilson slotting a late dropgoal to give the Stags the lead, and a well deserved win.

Canterbury had a 16-9 halftime lead thanks to two nice tries, but they could only score a solitary penalty in the second, as Southland defended their hearts out in front of a passionate crowd at Rugby Park in Christchurch.

They have since put the Shield on the line, and successfully defended it with a 22-14 win against Counties Manukau, taking their ITM Cup season wins to two and with that, retaining the log of wood. They now sit mid-table, with spirits down south.

Canterbury meanwhile have gone down again this week, losing 37-28 against Wellington.
