ITM Cup in New Zealand - Highlights from Round 7

Last week the reaction to the extended ITM Cup highlights was pretty good, so here are more highlights, this time from the latest round, Round 7, a round that had a few tight clashes, and some great tries.

The first game featured in this video is probably a bad ad for the rest of the highlights, as it was played in atrocious conditions with not too much to write home about, except for the big win by Bay of Plenty, who beat Manawatu 41-13.

One of the best games of the weekend, with some fantastic tries, was Southland against North Harbour in Invercargill where Southland scored seven tries to win 47-21 and retain the Ranfurley Shield. Center Kendrick Lynn had a great match, scoring two excellent tries.

The Hawkes Bay against Waikato game turned out to be somewhat of a classic, with a few standout tries and one in particular to Gillies Kaka that was incredible. You can watch a longer version, including replays, here. With the score at 24-27, Hawkes Bay got a penalty 48m out…

Sonny Bill Williams had another good game for Canterbury as he played a part in each of their three tries as they held off a determined challenge from Northland, 27-23. While at Eden Park, Auckland battled it out with Wellington to pick up a hard fought 21-15 win.

Chris Jack scored a try for Tasman, but they went down 13-11 to Otago in a low scoring game in Nelson, while Counties Manukau went down 28-19 against Taranaki, with David Smith and Kurt Baker both scoring great nice tries.

Time: 11:13

  • Fairpoint Luxi - the old SBW bandwagon continues....He looked a wee bit sharper in these highlights.

  • @Nick:

    A challenging team wins the Ranfurly Shield if they beat the team that currently holds it on the current team's home ground.

    If they win, then they get to keep it until their next home game when the visiting team will be the challenging team.

    It's just a little shield thing that's been going on for ages. It means a lot to the individual unions because it used to be the number 1 trophy in NZ (and you could argue it still is). When Southland won it at the end of last year, they had parade down Invercargill.

  • SBW is looking the goods!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 17, 2010 4:39 am  

  • Sonny Bill Williams looked very good going forward, in the game. His distribution and offloading are very, very good.

    Might be too soon to say, but he could be an All Black on the autumn tour and stick around for a while!

    Then again, how many centers do you take? NZ have so many good players... Nonu, Smith, McAllister, Freuan, SBW, Kahui etc. Spoiled for choice!

  • Keep the longer videos coming RD.
    Luxi, can't you just skip bits of the video you find uninteresting?
    And SBW is coming good as always was going to.

  • SBW, best offloader in the business potentially.
    Amazing the balls he gets away in the tackle, perfect attacking rugby if he's got the support play.
    And no one does support running like NZers.

  • like the videos... but why do highlights have to be just tries?? i wouldn't mind seeing some nice tackles, scrums, passes, line-outs and so forth. cheers
