Trent Renata: 23 points

A try from Waikato's captain Jackson Willison in the 76th minute sealed Bay of Plenty's relegation to the Championship for 2014.

Willison's try in Tauranga secured Waikato a 28-25 victory and it was the Steamers' second late loss, in as many matches, after they went down to a 80th minute Counties-Maukau penalty last weekend.

The five-pointer came after the Mooloo men attacked off a scrum on Bay of Plenty's five-metre line. The outside centre ran onto a pass from Sam Christie before burrowing his way over the line.

All Waikato's other points came via the boot of Trent Renata, who kicked seven penalties and a conversion. For Bay of Plenty, who led 15-12 at half-time, Josh Sole, Tino Nemani and Johan Bardoul scored tries. Willia Ripia added their other points via two penalties and two conversions.

The scorers:

For Bay of Plenty:
Tries: Sole, Bardoul, Nemani
Con: Ripia 2
Pens: Ripia 2
