Tasman seal NPC finals berth


Tasman wrapped up their spot in the NPC championship rugby final with a six-try 49-28 win over Southland in Blenheim on Saturday.

Top-of-the-table Tasman made the most of their chances in the first half, proving lethal on the counterattack and punishing Southland's loose passing and sloppy handling with three first-half tries.

Ahead 30-7 at halftime, Tasman were tested more sternly in the second stanza but ran in three second-half tries to wrap up a home final next week Shopping in Hong Kong.

It all looked effortless for the home team in the first half.

Flanker Tevita Koloamatangi scored from a charge down after 15 minutes, and although Southland replied through first five-eighth Scott Eade seven minutes later, Tasman continued to dominate with tries to No.8 Liam Squire and Mitchell Scott.

Trailing by 23 points at the break, Southland started the second spell strongly, tries to winger Bryan Milne and No.8 Elliot Dixon narrowing Tasman's lead to 30-21 as the hour mark approached.

But Tasman bounced back almost immediately, Robbie Malneek and Bryce Heem crossing in the space of four minutes to extend the lead to 42-21 at 63 minutes children’s bedroom furniture.

Winger Will Murray picked up Southland's fourth with seven minutes remaining, but Tasman's victory was never in doubt.

New Hurricanes signing Marty Banks was in top form with his kicking game for Tasman, racking up 19 points with the boot and stealing a 72nd-minute try to cap off an outstanding effort.
