Mitre 10 Cup RD 8 Highlights: Taranaki v Counties Manukau

A great game from both teams providing an interesting spectacle. Taranaki were the first to draw blood, but it didn't last for long with Counties hitting back soon afterwards. This trend continued throughout the game with both teams hitting back at each other constantly. Counties Manukau seemed to get an edge for a portion of the game but Taranaki fought back and took the lead again but Counties Manukau weren't finished yet. They took the lead late in the game and fought to keep for six minutes after extra time! Taranaki didn't give up and searched for that winning try, no matter how long it took. But at the end of the match, it was Counties who took the victory, a fitting send off for Read as he played his last game for Counties Manukau before heading overseas. Counties Manukau are the victors, 27-31!
