29 straight points: Hawke's Bay

Hawke's Bay continued their recent good run of form by overcoming North Harbour 36-21 in a comeback win at McLean Park in Napier on Sunday.

The home side's win was largely down to a purple patch when they scored 29 unanswered points that wiped out Harbour's 16-0 lead early on.

Even with the comeback of prop Tony Woodcock, Harbour were left to lick their wounds following a third straight defeat in the competition.

Harbour's bright start though did leave them ten points to the good when Chris Smylie crossed before Mike Harris added five from the tee.

Harris then kicked two more three-pointers to extend the lead, that was until Hawke's Bay finally came to life.

A nice move involving Ryan McLeod and Kahn Fotuali'i was the catalyst in the move that allowed Zac Guildford to cross. Richard Buckman adding the two.

Then flanker Michael Johnson joined the party for seven points that cut the lead down to two at the half-time interval.

But upon the turnaround came more scores from McLeod before scrum-half Chris Eaton got over to make Harbour replacement Josh York's try a consolation for the visitors.

The scorers:

For Hawke's Bay:
Tries: Guildford, Johnson, Coman, McLeod, Eaton
