Canterbury made easy work of Manawatu on Friday when they cruised to a 34-10 win in Palmerston North.
Canterbury led 10-0 at the break but it was Fergus Burke solo effort that sparked the side in the second half.
He collected the ball on his own 22 and found plenty of space with his boot as he followed up to run in his try. He is for sure a name that needs to be remembered.
He then setup both Chay Fihaki’s tries by getting through the defence. His great ball skills and step was there for all to watch.
Canterbury scored four tries in 15 minutes to take the game away from Manawatu in that second half.
Canterbury 34: Tries – Rameka Poihipi, Fergus Burke, Mitchell Drummond, Chay Fihaki(2) Penalties – Burke Conversions – Burke(3)
Manawatū 10: Tries – Josiah Maraku, Drew Wilde
