BoP beat Manawatu

6:57 am on 10 September 2010

Bay of Plenty have beaten Manawatu 41-13 in their national provincial rugby match on a very wet Baypark Stadium in Mt Maunganui.

Prop Tristan Moran scored 2 tries to help the homeside to a 20-6 half time lead.

Manawatu were unable to follow up their upset win over Wellington last week, with their forwards out muscled by the Bay.

Bay of Plenty scored 6 tries in total to move them up to 8th in the standings.

Tonight Southland defend the Ranfurly Shield against North Harbour.
