He's back! Israel Dagg

Israel Dagg and Zac Guilford both scored tries as Hawke's Bay cruised to a 32-13 ITM Cup win over Bay of Plenty in Rotorua on Saturday.

The All Blacks duo - who will fly out to join the rest of the Tri-Nations squad in South Africa on Sunday - were on fire with Guilford scoring twice as the Magpies secured a bonus point.

The result sees the Steamers slump to their third straight defeat as the form that took them to the top of the Premiership standings earlier in the season seems to have abandoned them.

Hawke's Bay led 17-3 at the break despite being called on to defend for huge portions of the first half. The BOP attack lacked venom and failed to break through despite plenty of chances.

Hawke's Bay opened the scoring in the fourth minute when Kahn Fotuali'i touched down under the sticks after a strong run from Guilford.

Daniel Waenga pulled three points back for the hosts but Hawke's Bay extended their lead when Andrew Horrell landed a penalty before Dagg scored from 50m out after Kane Thompson broke from his own 22.

The respective goalkickers traded penalties early in the second half before the game stagnated for 20 minutes.

Dagg and Guilford combined however to spark the match into life, adding another try for Hawke's Bay going into the final ten minutes. Dagg got on the outside of his man before putting Guildford away from 20m out.

Bay of Plenty kept fighting though and Luke Braid was able to barge over from short range for a late consolation try.

The Magpies had the last laugh however as Guilford latched onto Daniel Kirkpatrick's inside pass to score the bonus point try in the final minute.
