Tom Marshall: Kicked eight penalties and a conversion to finish with 26 points

Tasman broke a six-game ITM Cup losing streak after beating Bay of Plenty 41-39 at Lansdowne Park in Blenheim on Sunday.

The Steamers scored six of the nine tries and overcame a 19-point deficit in the final quarter to take a one-point lead (39-38), before Tasman full-back Tom Marshall slotted his eighth penalty goal near the end to seal the game for the Makos.
