Southland beat Waikato

6:13 am on 17 September 2010

The Southland rugby side turned in a mighty defensive effort to beat Waikato 7-6 in their provincial match in Hamilton.

Waikato attacked for most of the game but simply could not find a way through the Southland defence.

Kendrick Lynn scored the only try of the match for Southland after 10 minutes and it was 7-6 at half time.

Waikato missed 4 penalty attempts which could have won the game.

Southland return to the top of the standings.
