RD 2 HIGHLIGHTS | Canterbury v Taranaki (Mitre 10 Cup 2020)

What a game from start to finish! Canterbury were the favourites but Taranaki, the defenders of the Ranfurly Shield, decided that they were not going to take it sitting down! Canterbury really struggled to get into a rhythm for the first half of the match, putting only three points onto the board. The game seemed to belong to Taranaki for the first half and they played an extraordinary game. Canterbury came back in the second half and looked as though they might be able to take it as they went two points ahead with not much time to go. But Taranaki received a penalty from 48 metres out and Barrett slotted it straight through the poles which was the points that allowed Taranaki to take the win! Taranaki beat Canterbury to take the Ranfurly Shield once again, 22-23!
