Manawatu have defeated Tasman 20-8 in their national provincial rugby match in Palmerston North.

Tasman lead the home side 8-3 at half-time, but Manawatu took charge in the second half with some impressive attacking play.

Casey Stone scored just one minute after the break, and All Black Aaron Cruden scored an impressive individual try to prove why he wears a black jersey.

The 17 unanswered points to the Turbos in the second half secured Manawatu just their second win for the season.
