Otago v North Harbour, Championship Final



  • Man, North Harbour are a tough team. Solid on defence all night and took their chance when they had it.



  • Some dumb rugby at the end from otago there, impatient and inaccurate. Man some of those early breaks should've been converted too, too often not taking the simple option and trying to be tricky.

    Great defence by Harbour, that was a fun watch even if it was the wrong result.



  • We won that with MASSIVE DEFENCE. Just HUGE!!!



  • Gatland nailed a winning DG for HBHS vs St Kents in the schools final a few year back too.



  • Bring back the old harbourrugby fan website!!

    Great result for the underdog. Hard for Otago to swallow, but they didn't take the opportunities given them.

    With that sort of effort Harbour could have turned back the Germans in 1940.



  • Fuck, I was on a skype work call for the whole game!



  • Pretty, pretty sure that NZ needs a 6th Super Rugby team now.

    It was a good game to watch. LOts of kicking for a NZ game but bloody intense.

    I wanted Otago to win but Harbour deserved that win largely through attitude and defence. Kept waiting for Otago to run it and could have a few times but their lack of adventure was a tad disappointing.

    Why they put Eade on is a mystery. The hyphen at first five was going well. Was pretty cool seeing Hore come on although it didn't amount to much.

    Well done harbour, took their chances, a good story and NZ domestic rugby a winner as well

    Why?

    Because harbour won the second division?

    Because Auckland can't even make the semis of the first division?

    Remember the big boys play in the real final tonight tim 😉



  • Awesome stuff Harbour. It is excellent for NZ rugby that Harbour are once again a force.

    Very happy the Blues have signed up coach Steve Jackson.
