The Highlanders provided the New Zealand highlight of round three in the Super rugby competition with an upset win over the defending champion Bulls 35-28 in Pretoria.

The Highlanders' third straight win has them tied for the lead with the Sharks, and prop Chris King says the rare win at Loftus Versfeld was one to savour, but it's still early days for the new look southerners.

The Highlanders rounded off a perfect weekend for the four New Zealand teams in action.
