11:04 am on 20 October 2012

The Otago rugby team has booked a spot in the final of the ITM Cup Championship after a thrilling 41-34 win over Tasman in Dunedin on Friday night, despite trailing by 13 midway through the second half.

Otago scored four tries to three and overcame the deficit in style, to dominate the last quarter.

Glenn Dickson kicked eight goals from nine attempts and contributed 21 points as stand-in goal-kicker for the injured Hayden Parker.

Otago will meet the winner of Saturday's semi-final between Counties Manukau and Southland.
