Robertson sings Mo’unga’s praises

Date published: October 30 2016

Canterbury boss Scott Robertson singled out fly-half Richie Mo'unga for special praise after their 43-27 win over Tasman in the Mitre 10 Cup Final.

Mo'unga was in superb form in Christchurch on Saturday. The 22-year-old was rewarded with a brace of tries for his efforts and also helped set up another in a performance which earned him the official man of the match award.

"How good was Richie?" asked Robertson after the match.

"He set up one and scored a couple. He put a show on. He was outstanding."

Mo'unga downplayed his brillinat performance and was quick to credit his team-mates.

"When it came for me to do my part, I did it," he said. 

"I guess with how the game was, I had to step up and run a bit."
