Tevita Taufu i Manawatu ITM Cup v Taranaki

On the charge: Tevita Taufui

Manawatu made heavy work of a 12-6 ITM Cup victory over Taranaki in poor conditions at FMG Stadium on Saturday.

Manawatu led 6-3 at half-time thanks to two penalties from fly-half Jade Te Rure. But the lead could have been much bigger since, despite a significant tail wind, the hosts were only able to convert two of the five kickable penalties.

Taranaki Andre Taylor centre kicked a solitary penalty in the first half as poor handling robbed the match of any real excitement.

With the wind at his back in the second half, Taylor levelled the scores from long range just before the hour mark only to see Te Rure reply almost immdiately put the hosts back in front.

Te Rure fished the job with a late penalty to secure a hard-fought win.

The scorers:

For Manawatu:
Pens: Te Rure 4

For Taranaki:
Pens: Taylor 2
