Taranaki beat Otago

2:57 pm on 27 August 2010

Otago remain winless in the provincial rugby championship after suffering a 25-15 loss to Taranaki at Carisbrook.

Taranaki made a good start and converted their chances to record their fourth straight win to go outright top ahead of second-placed Southland's clash at Tasman in Blenheim, while Otago remain at the bottom of the table after five rounds with just a solitary bonus point.

Taranaki scored three tries to two and led 19-3 at half-time.
