  • FULL-TIME: WAIKATO 43 - 31 WELLINGTON Despite a late rally, Waikato take the spoils and get their season up and running. 
    '
  • MISSED CONVERSION WELLINGTON Garden-Bachop's kick, again rushed, is wide from the left edge. 
    78''
  • Try
    TRY WAIKATO Filipo is in this time! He races away down the left edge after Proctor stepped and broke his way through the tiring defence with ease. Surely there isn't enough time to get a result? 43-31 
    77''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION WELLINGTON Garden-Bachop from in front. 43-26
    77''
  • Try
    TRY WELLINGTON Malo Tuitama intercepts a pass out wide and runs in to score a bonus point try. 43-24
    76''
  • MISSED CONVERSION WELLINGTON Garden-Bachop hurriedly takes the kick, which comes back off the post. 
    73''
  • Try
    TRY WELLINGTON Matt Proctor strolls over as they chase a bonus point. Filipo did brilliantly to break the line and trade passes with a teammate before further puncturing it and offloading to the centre who was supporting his inside shoulder as the winger hugged the left sideline. 43-19 
    72''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION WAIKATO Smith makes no mistake once more. 43-14 
    67''
  • Try
    TRY WAIKATO Reece completes his hat-trick and the try is a belter. Once again a midfield scrum produces a backline set piece, a chip over the top from Sweeney is collected on the fly by Tupaea, whose collection is bettered by his long looping pass while running at full speed, out to Reece who finishes the move from 22 out. 41-14
    66''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSON WAIKATO Smith makes no mistake a few metres in from the right touch. 36-14 
    59''
  • Try
    TRY WAIKATO The lineout and driving maul conjures a try for Samisoni Taukei'aho! 34-14 
    58''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION WELLINGTON Jackson Garden-Bachop quickly converts. Game on, perhaps! 29-14 
    57''
  • Try
    TRY WELLINGTON Isaia Walker-Leawara, at first receiver, barges his way over from four metres out. 29-12 
    57''
  • TMO WELLINGTON 
    56''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY WAIKATO Smith has a shot from a central position, but it crashes off the crossbar before eventually trickling over! 29-7 
    54''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION WELLINGTON Pakai Turia makes no mistake from the sideline. 26-7 
    51''
  • Try
    TRY WELLINGTON Trent Renata gets his side on the board. The ball is switched from the middle to the right and after some quick ball, Pakai Turia attacks the blindside and gets on the outside of his man before tipping it out to Renata to score in the corner. 26-5 
    50''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION WAIKATO Smith goals again, 15 in from the left side. 26-0 
    47''
  • Try
    TRY WAIKATO Raniera Takarangi coasts over from 40 metres out, after Mitchell Jacobson won a turnover for his side, keeping possession, and offloading to the half-back. 24-0 
    46''
  • Yellow Card
    YELLOW CARD WAIKATO Jordan Manihera goes in the bin for the same incident. He retaliated to the punch which caused the fracas. 
    43''
  • Yellow Card
    YELLOW CARD WELLINGTON Tolu Fahamokioa is in the bin for throwing a punch while on the ground, underneath a ruck. 
    42''
  • SECOND HALF KICK-OFF
    40''
  • HALF-TIME: WAIKATO 19 - 0 WELLINGTON The home side look well on their way to opening their account for the season, though the visitors will look to show a truer representation of themselves come the second half. 
    '
  • Yellow Card
    YELLOW CARD WELLINGTON Tuitama's deliberate knock on, an interception that prevented a clean break, earns him 10 minutes. 
    35''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION WAIKATO Smith converts this close range kick. 19-0 
    29''
  • Try
    TRY WAIKATO Jordan Manihera gets in on the act! After Jacobson's break into the 22, Manihera manages to pick and go from the base with his side camped on the try line. 17-0 
    28''
  • Campbell breaks from a kick return and propels to the edge of the Wellington 22 once again. They're playing great stuff and look dangerous. 
    26''
  • TMO - NO TRY WAIKATO Reece is denied a hat-trick for a second movement. Once again he scampered into the middle to seemingly touch down against the posts. 
    25''
  • TMO WAIKATO
    24''
  • MISSED CONVERSION WAIKATO Dwayne Sweeney steps up for this one, but pushes it wide from the left edge. 
    20''
  • Try
    TRY WAIKATO A Scrum five metres from the line goes to the backline, and Smith loops the super miss-pass out 30 or 40 metres to Reece, who squeezes over in the corner. 12-0 
    19''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION WAIKATO Fletcher Smith goals from close range. 7-0 
    15''
  • Try
    TRY WAIKATO Sevu Reece cuts inside from the left wing and dances around the defence, showing his low centre of gravity to angle his run through the defence. It came from a lineout, but not your regular lineout try! 5-0 
    14''
  • Tupaea slices through the middle from midfield after throwing the dummy, before eventually putting boot to ball from just outside the 22.  The kick trickles into the in-goal and Waikato manage to ground it. 
    11''
  • A bright start from Wellington sees Tuitama break clear down the right edge, but he loses the ball in contact when met by Waikato cover inside the attacking 22. 
    3''
  • KICK-OFF We're underway at FMG Stadium in Hamilton! 
    1''
  • Waikato host Wellington in the first Mitre 10 Cup instalment of the week. The home side are looking for their first win of the campaign, in this their fourth outing.
