Super Rugby Highlights: Blues v Highlanders

The Blues snapped a 20 game winless streak against New Zealand opposition with a 33-26 home victory over the Highlanders in round 6. The first half was a sea-saw affair as the Highlanders kicked two penalties to one, but the Blues crossed for two tries to one to take a slender 15-13 advantage into the break. The sides traded second half penalties before a Highlanders try took them in front 23-18. The Blues responded immediately with their third try to level the score at 23-23 heading into the final quarter. A Highlanders penalty edged the visitors in front, but they then picked up a yellow card with a little over ten minutes to play. The Blues made their numerical advantage count, going over for their fourth try to regain the lead 30-26 with around 5 minutes to play. A late Blues penalty would seal the win to finally end their drought against fellow New Zealand sides.
