Hawke’s Bay kept the Ranfurly Shield, for atleast for another eight days after they beat Northland on Friday.
They never really let Northland a chance to get in the game and beat them 33-17 in Napier.
After no tries in the first half Bay got four in the second half to secure the bonus point win.
Northland just could not keep up with Bay.
The Bay forward pack was just too good and where just too clinical with some brilliant rugby being played in that second half.
Both sides try to run with the ball from the start and it was Northland that that wasted just too many good opportunity.
At the end The Bay was just too good on the night.
Hawke’s Bay 33 Tries – Neria Fomai, Ash Dixon, Danny Toala, Devan Flanders Conversions – Lincoln McClutchie (2), Penalties – Lincoln McClutchie (3)
Northland 17 Tries – Lua Li (2) Conversions – Dan Hawkins, Johnny Cooper Penalties – Dan Hawkins,
