And that's the halftime break. Canterbury have asserted their dominance as they took a 15 point lead going into the halftime break. Will Northland be able to claw back and take the win for the first time since 1999? Stay tuned for the second half to find out.
HT: Northland 7-22 Canterbury
McKay gets a lucky bounce after Cameron gives a up and under. The ball bounces after McKay is unabe to gather his own ball and McKay is able to gather it for Canterbury and dodge all forms of defence to get his seventh try of the season so far!
McAlister is the man who goes over the line as Canterbury maul the ball from a lineout from close range and all he needs to do it drop and dot down!
Burke is the third player to be subbed off and this time it is for a injury to the leg
Gilbert gets a nasty head-knock and heads off the field
Whitelock goes down with a big knock to the head. He will not be returning to the field
