Veainu: Hat-trick for the Cantabs

Canterbury bagged a 36-32 bonus-point ITM Cup victory over Tasman in a match that produced ten tries at Lansdowne Park on Friday.

Both sides scored five tries each as the Canterbury wingers ran riot to open up a big gap for the visitors, who at one stage led 36-15.

But the Makos weren't prepared to roll over so easily and stormed back bravely to end the match with two bonus points.

Winger Telusa Veainu grabbed a hat-trick of tries to set up Canterbury's nail-biting win, while flying Fijian Patrick Osborne was equally impressive with two tries.

The defeat was a double blow for Tasman, who earlier had lost lock Riki Hoeata to a three-month suspension following a judicial hearing.

Hoeata was cited and banned for a swinging arm, which resulted in his Hawke's Bay opposite Brodie Retallick suffering a broken nose and facial injuries.
