So Big Karl's injury was not that serious?
He could still hear his name read out on Wed.
Marty McKenzie scores. Southland 7-0 after 12 mins.
@Bovidae I don't think he'll be going to Japan but great to see he is fit enough to play
@African-Monkey Could Southland make a game of this?
@DrivingMaul I really hope so but they'll eventually fade lets be honest here.
Southland scrum going backwards and with McKenzie going off for a HIA it feels like the dam is about to burst
Little scores off the back of a solid scrum so Harbour get their first score and at last some reward for being on top 7-7
Will that be the start of the dam bursting?
@DrivingMaul Yeah Southland starting to make silly mistakes now like McKee giving a dumb penalty away and Nu'u throwing a dumb offload.

Harbour are very scrappy on attack. Need to use their big men as ball carriers.
7-7 at HT. Southland fighting hard but a poor miss from Scott Eade is not what they needed after they got some good ball.
To be fair to Southland they didn't let their heads drop when they conceded and are staying tenaciously in this one even if they did miss a penalty to take the lead back 7-7 HT
How the hell did McGahan miss that?!
@African-Monkey How did Southland not match up on defence? All that hard work gone to waste because of 1 lazy moment
@DrivingMaul Yeah poor miss by Matt James.
And now it is game over. Scott Eade has been poor since coming on.

Duffie looked slow on that break.
@Dice I think there's a bunch of tired bodies out there
@Dice Why did the Blues re-sign him?
