North Harbour survive a spirited 2nd half comeback by Wellington to go up to 3rd in the table and all but secure a playoff place. 78 points and 11 tries created a massively entertaining game with some fantastic tries on display. Wellington looked buried at half time but picked themselves up and put in a special 2nd half to come away with a valuable bonus point but will be disappointed they missed out on another one. North Harbour have done what they set the,selves to do and leave playoff chances in their own hands, but they have a rather tough task when they take on Canterbury...
