5 days ago by Ultimate Rugby

Tasman ran riot today. They were miles ahead of Taranaki who just never really got into the game. No pace or urgency and constantly chasing the game. Tasman were able to just keep the scoreboard ticking and keep the pressure on Taranaki. Tasman scored some wonderful tries and will be very impressed with this effort. Taranaki need to fix a few things ad fast. They have faded in the last few weeks and will need to sort it out before the season gets away from them. It doesn't get easier for them next week as they host a resurgent...
