Regular goal kicker Brett Cameron doesn't miss from in front, Death Star Stormtroopers 3-0 Harbour.
Peach of a pass from Drummond plus a great line by Ennor equals try-time next to the sticks. Cameron adds the extras, 10-0.
Talea a nice finish in the corner but Stevenson sprays the conversion, Cantabs 10-5 & into that last-10-min period where they often hurt teams.
Josh McKay scores off a kick-pass & offload, Cameron nails it from touch & nek minnit Cantabs 17-5 & in possession so just waiting for the HT siren as a cue to boot it out.
Spectacular finish in the corner for Harbour newbie Qamasea. Hall takes over the kicking duties but pushes it wide, Harbour close to 10-17.
Hall now lining up a PK from almost in front 22 out. Kick is good, 13-17.
Stevenson shells it 5m out & just to his left of the posts. If Cantabs score here I think Harbour will be just about done. Harbour strip the ball off LWhitelock & clear.
Ref gives Cantabs an extraordinary amount of advantage so Harbour back under the pump.
McKay eventually goes over in the corner & Cameron is on target, 24-13 as the final quarter starts.
Talea bags a double, Hall nails the conversion so it's game on again. Cantabs have used all their back reserves so Drummond appears to be playing wing.
Harbour reserve 9 puts them a point in front, Stevenson resumes kicking but is astray. Harbour 25-24.
Cameron misses a handy one.
Cameron declines the shot from 45 out, puts Cantabs inside Harbour 22. Drive gets inside the 5m & siren has sounded. Advantage Cantabs adjacent to the posts.
Cantabs score. Maybe. TMO to call & if no try I'd imagine Cantabs will get a PK to win it. Replay looks good, try given, Cameron converts. Cantabs 31-25 Harbour & all of Auckland (or the bits South of the bridge) rejoices.
Canterbury 31 (Braydon Ennor, Josh McKay 2, Harry Allan tries; Brett Cameron pen, 4 con) North Harbour 25 (Mark Telea 2, Osea Qamasea, Lewis Gjaltema tries; Bryn Hall pen, con). HT: 17-5

Going to be a long night for Manawatu if they can't improve their D & exits.
"The" Bay 17-3 after 20.
Yep well it was a long night!!
^ indeed it was.
Bay of Plenty 64 (Emoni Narawa 3, Joe
Ravouvou, Nathan Vella, Hoani Matenga, Richard Judd, Aidan Ross, Pryor Collier, Jason Robertson tries; Chase Tiatia 5, Robertson 2 con) Manawatū 3 (Sam Malcolm pen). HT: 31-3.
Geez BOP looked bloody good! There is a bit of strike power there, and wondering who will be newbies to pick up Super contracts.
Auckland making a good physical start to their trench run against the Tasman Death Star...
