  • Baden Kerr gets a chance to knock the final nail in the 'Canes' coffin, after another infringement at a ruck by the visitors. The replacement pivot fails with his spot kick and the 'Canes try one final attack. It comes to nothing though as Andre Taylor knocks on a pass from Smith. The final whistle goes and that's the end of the match! It was an entertaining affair and the hosts are deserved winners as they dominated in most facets of play!

  • Luatua throws a loose pass, close to the touchline, and Julian Savea intercepts and runs 55 metres before dotting down under the Blues' posts! His effort is ruled out, however, as the TMO rules that Luatua had a foot in touch when throwing his pass!

  • Jackson Willison launches a bomb close to the halfway mark and Ranger does well when he manages to knock it back on the Blues' side! This guy can't do anything wrong!

  • The Hurrcanes are hammering away at the Blues' try-line but are met by a wall of defenders! They eventually lose possession when Ranger wins a valuable turnover for the hosts!

  • The 'Canes attack close to the Blues' try-line and Chris Smylie makes a dash for the line! He loses the ball in the process and Ranger hoofs the ball upfield!

  • Noakes gets a chance to knock over his first penalty, after the 'Canes are pinned for a ruck infringement. His effort is just wide of the mark, however!

  • Julian breaks through a couple of defenders but is brought to ground, inside the Blues' 22, by a text-book tackle from Piutau!

  • The 'Canes launch an attack inside the Blues' 22 and Julian Savea offloads to Reynold Lee-Lo, who goes over the line but is held up by Luatua!

  • CONVERSION, BLUES, NOAKES! 28-6. Noakes adds another two-pointer to extend his side's lead!

  • TRY, BLUES, MCCARTNEY! 26-6. The Blues forwards go on the attack close to the 'Canes' try-line with pick ups and goes. Peter Saili and Ali Williams are both stopped just short of the line and when Tom McCartney spots an opening he burrows his way over the try-line!

  • Francis Saili puts a grubber kick through and Putau gives chase! Hedives on the ball behind the 'Canes' try-line but after consultation with the TMO, the referee rules that he did not ground the ball properly!

  • The Blues are camped inside the 'Canes' 22 and take the ball through several phases with their forwards. They're looking for an opening here!

  • It's the Blues who are in control at the moment and Aride Savea tries to break the shackles when picks up and goes, at a scrum. He makes little progress, however as Peter Saili knocks him back in the tackle!

  • The blues launch a scintillating counter-attack, and Ranger, Piutau and Francis Saili are all prominent! They gain about forty metres but lose possession when Halai knocks on!

  • CONVERSION, BLUES, NOAKES! 21-6. Noakes makes no mistake from the kicking tee and the hosts are putting daylight between them and their opponents now!

  • TRY, BLUES, PARSONS! 19-6. The Blues attack deep inside the 'Canes' 22 and Noakes throws a perfectly-weighted inside pass to the on-rushing James Parsons, who crashes over in the corner!

  • Rene Ranger finds the ball in space but can't make good use of this attacking opportunity as Conrad Smith is quick to close down his space and tackles him into touch!

  • Chris Noakes gets the second half underway! His kick is deep and Brad Shields collects and immediately sets up a ruck inside his 22.
