  • FULL TIME - Waikato are the new holders of the Ranfurly Shield!  Taranaki controlled possession and territory after the break and struck early in the second half with two quick tries but, in the end, the half time deficit proved to be too much for the home side.  On the back of a stunning first half, Waikato celebrate after recording a 33-19 victory over Taranaki.
    '
  • Taranaki are throwing everything at the Waikato line but the visitors are holding firm - their defence has been severely tested in the second stanza but they are now within 90 seconds of holding on to record a famous victory.
    79''
  • Taranaki find some space out to the left but they let themselves down with a sloppy passage of play that will gift possession back to Waikato.
    77''
  • Waikato look to keep the ball in close and wipe some valuable seconds off the clock however some loose handling gives Taranaki a glimmer of hope with four and a half minutes left on the clock.
    76''
  • Toa Halafihi drives over the advantage line however the Waikato defence does superbly to grind his run to a halt and they will be rewarded with a crucial penalty!
    73''
  • Not the cleanest of line-outs from Taranaki but they manage to hang onto possession - the home side will look to launch an attack from half way.
    71''
  • We enter the final 10 minutes of what has been an absorbing contest - Taranaki have dominated this second half but need to find another score soon if they are to have any chance of pegging back this 14 point deficit.
    70''

    68''
  • Beaudein Waaka gets a horror bounce and has knocked on in his attempt to secure possession - Waikato have the scrum feed inside Taranaki territory.
    67''
  • Seta Tamanivalu sends a cross field kick out to the left - Beaudein Waaka climbs high to claim the ball but he can't stay inside the field of play.  Waikato have a line-out throw right on their 22.
    65''
  • Jordan Manihera picks and goes from the base of the scrum to get the ball moving in Taranaki's direction once again.
