Have you seen anything like that?
After 14 minutes Canterbury led 17-0.
After 34 minutes it was 31-7.
After 58 minutes it was 38-all
After 74 minutes Taranaki were ahead 55-38.
That’s a stretch of 48-7 before Canterbury’s consolation.
The greatest comeback in Shield history.
Maybe nudges the 1985 Canterbury v Auckland game as the greatest game in Shield history.
Marty McKenzie’s goalkicking. Lachlan Boshier schooling Canterbury at the breakdown. Mitchell Graham’s massive motor, Pita Sowakula busting the line, and even Seta Taumanivalu redeeming himself in spades for his brain explosion in last year’s draw with Waikato.
I’m one very happy ‘Naki man tonight.
