Quentin MacDonald Tasman ITM Cup 2013

Winners: Tasman

Tasman booked themselves a home semi in the ITM Cup Championship after beating Premiership side Taranaki 27-20 on Sunday.

The success at Yarrow Stadium was the Makos' fourth successive victory in 2013, with their tries coming from Mitchell Scott and Joe Wheeler.

Meanwhile, Seta Tamanivalu and Andre Taylor crossed for the hosts, who were playing under the knowledge they had already secured their status in the top flight for another ITM Cup season.

Tasman led the game 21-6 at the break for an advantage that proved good enough to hold off a spirited second-half fightback from the 'Naki.
