Taranaki: Repel Canterbury challenge

Taranaki survived a tough Ranfurly Shield challenge from Canterbury to claim a 18-9 win at Yarrow Stadium in New Plymouth.

James Marshall and Scott Waldrom scored a try in each half for the Amber and Blacks, with Waldrom's five-pointer coming in the 76th minute before the Shield was safe.

In difficult conditions, all of Canterbury's points came from the boot of Tyler Bleyendaal.

The result has now moves the Shield holders top of the ITM Cup standings - though they could slip to second if Wellington see off Waikato with a bonus point.
