  • FULL-TIME: HURRICANES 43 - 15 SUNWOLVES A late flourish adds gloss to the scoreline, but this was a spirited effort from the Japan franchise. 
    80''
  • MISSED CONVERSION HURRICANES Jordie Barrett drags it wide. 43-15 
    79''
  • Try
    TRY HURRICANES More gloss! Aso gets a double. Jordie Barrett breaks the line from deep before shipping it wide. The Sunwolves make the tackle, but a quick recycle and offload from Ardie Savea's pick and go gives Aso a walk-in. 43-15 
    78''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION HURRICANES Jordie Barrett nails it from the left sideline this time. 38-15 
    77''
  • Try
    TRY HURRICANES They get joy out wide on the left once again. Ardie Savea gets over the gainline before Shields trades passes with Aso, who turns provider with his offload back to Shield who scoots over. 36-15 
    76''
  • MISSED CONVERSION HURRICANES Jordie Barrett misses from the left touch. 
    74''

    TRY HURRICANES Finally, Aso has his try. Garden-Bachop puts him in at the left corner from a huge overlap. 31-15
    73''
  • MISSED CONVERSION SUNWOLVES Yu Tamura pulls it wide. 
    70''
  • Try
    TRY SUNWOLVES A Nagare kick from the base of the ruck, down the sideline, is chased by Fukuoka, who shows his immense speed and brilliant hands to pick it up at full speed and dot down without hitting the sideline. 26-15 
    69''
  • The Sunwolves get over the line, but they are nowhere near touching it down, while Ardie Savea also pulls off a turnover steal to win the scrum. 
    68''
  • The Sunwolves are encroaching on the Hurricanes' red zone once again, edging their way across the 22 thanks to good carries from the likes of replacements like Nagare and Masirewa. They have a penalty for their efforts here. 
    63''
  • NO TRY SUNWOLVES Saumaki's pick and go close to the line almost brings a try, but he fumbles the ball in the act of grounding. Perhaps a tad short, too. 
    57''
  • TMO SUNWOLVES
    56''
  • The Sunwolves have mounted pressure on the Hurricanes line on several occasions, but cannot find the killer touch yet. They have a penalty, five out, it's going to touch. 
    52''
  • NO TRY HURRICANES Aso is over again.  This time it is Julian Savea who breaks from deep within his own half after the ball is spread wide, before he unloaded inside to the centre. But the TMO takes a look, there was a dangerous clean-out from Ardie Savea. Vince Aso is denied once again. 
    50''
  • TMO HURRICANES
    49''
  • The TMO rules that Parker produces a dangerous tackle on Beauden Barrett. But no further action than a penalty. 
    48''
  • NO TRY SUNWOLVES The Sunwolves, and Grant Hattingh, think they're over on the blind side but there was a double movement. 
    46''
  • TMO SUNWOLVES
    45''
  • MISSED CONVERSION HURRICANES Barrett's sideline attempt goes wide, to the right. 
    42''

    41''
  • SECOND HALF KICK-OFF
    40''
  • HALF-TIME: HURRICANES 21 - 10 SUNWOLVES This contest has been more competitive than many would have tipped so far.  The Sunwolves were a couple of unlucky breaks away from scoring two or three tries.  Can they make a comeback? 
    '
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION HURRICANES Barrett with a smart kick from close to the right touch. 21-10 
    39''
  • Try
    TRY HURRICANES Reed Prinsep breaks from the back of the five-metre scrum, towards the blind side, to sneak over the line. 19-10 
    38''
  • After Grant Hattingh's long break, the Sunwolves go within inches of scoring before coughing the ball up. Aso picks up the loose ball from his try line and motors over the half-way line to put his side on the front foot.  At the next phase, Barrett chips forward, but it trickles over the whitewash for a lineout. 
    32''
  • The Sunwolves are in at the left corner thanks to good hands, but Michael Little, or Tim Lafaele's pass, is flagged as forward.  They both were, in reality. Kenki Fukuoka is denied.

    28''
