Lions try-scorer: Shaun Treeby

Wellington ran in five tries to beat North Harbour 34-28 at Westpac Stadium to go top of the table.

It wasn't all one-way traffic for the Lions and Harbour provided Wellington with a late scare with two converted tries late in the ITM Cup game.

However, the hosts held on for a vital bonus-point win in the New Zealand capital to go one point clear of Auckland and Taranaki in the Premiership standings while Harbour remain winless.
