BoP try-scorer: Luke Braid

Bay of Plenty bounced back from their opening round loss in the ITM Cup with a 31-19 win over Otago at Rotorua International Stadium on Thursday.

The scores were tied 12-12 at half-time, as Nick McCashin and Hayden Parker traded penalties between them in a lacklustre 40 minutes.

However the hosts outscored their visitors three tries to one in the last half hour of the game, with loosehead prop Tristan Moran bagging a brace and number eight Luke Braid crashing over for another.

Replacement Tony Ensor scored a consolation try for Otago late in the match.

The scorers:

For Bay of Plenty:
