Southland Boys High School beat Otago Boys High School for the first time since 2008, coming out victorious 32-19 and in the process launching one young player in particular into the global spotlight. Here is a look at the stirring prematch Hakas, as well as a stunning breakaway try.
Dunedin played host for the fierce rivals but the team from Invercargill came out on top, with Southland Boys’ fullback Kaleb Talamahina making an electrifying intervention when scores were tied at 14-14 late in the first half.
He received the ball at a great angle after a drifting run by Mitchell Taylor, then turned on the gas, stepped beautifully then reached another gear as he sped away for a sensational try.
