Home All Blacks South snatch the win against North

South snatch the win against North


It was the game that was on then off again and then on again, but at the end the South claimed the win at the end.

And to put the cherry on top of it all, it was that man Will Jordan that scored the match-winning try in injury time added on. This was the first inter-island match in eight years and one that we will remember as well.

Four points down Josh Ioane kicked a cross-field kick which saw Jordan leaped in the air to snatch the win away from the North.

It was high quality rugby from start to finish with 10 tries in the match which display the quality New Zealand rugby attacking play.

The North was on their way to pull off a great comeback victory when Dixon got over with 8 minutes to go as they overturned a 10-point deficit.

Before the match their was much talk about the Beauden Barrett and Richie Mo’unga, but it never really lived up to expectation.

The class in the backline was quit impressive. It was a joy to watch quality players playing the game.

Beauden Barrett was instrumental in the first try of Ioane when he put through a grubber.

The All Black selectors would be very happy with what they saw on Saturday


South 38 (Will Jordan 2, Nepo Laulala, Jordie Barrett, Tyrel Lomax tries; Barrett 5 cons, pen)
North 35 (Rieko Ioane 2, Damian McKenzie, Aaron Smith, Ash Dixon tries; McKenzie 5 cons)
HT: 17-14
