Marty Banks in action for Tasman

26 points: Marty Banks

Tasman climbed level on points with ITM Cup leaders Canterbury after they defeated Bay of Plenty 56-27 with a bonus-point in Tauranga on Sunday.

Scores from Quentin MacDonald, Tom Marshall, Shane Christie, Kieron Fonotia, James Lowe, Marty Banks, David Havili saw them take five.

Meanwhile, Banks kicked a further 21 points to finish what was an entertaining game at ASB Baypark Stadium on a personal 26-point haul.

Kane Hames, Joe Royal, Tino Nemani, Johan Bardoul were the Steamers' try-scorers but the Makos were simply too good on Sunday, as they followed up putting 35 points on Hawke's Bay last weekend with this impressive away performance.

Tasman's next fixture is a trip to Auckland on Sunday.
