HIGHLIGHTS: Tasman v Auckland (Premiership Semifinal)

6 hours ago by Ultimate Rugby

Tasman had to work so hard to earn this win that puts them into the Mitre 10 Cup Premiership final at home. A test-match like feel to the game, as both sides never gave an inch. Both defended brilliantly but also missed loads of opportunities. Auckland will be heart broken as they would feel they were better for most of the game, but Tasman never panicked and did what was needed late on.
