Congratulations, commiserations, the crowd, the pre-match, the half-time entertainment and post-match at the Meads Cup semi-final at Alpine Energy Stadium, Timaru.
Two great tries in the second half got South Canterbury back into the game and Wanganui tried to peg them back by kicking with the easterly. Wanganui had a narrow lead in the final quarter, and defended stoutly against concerted pressure to win 29-24.
First half action from the Meads Cup Semi-final between South Canterbury and Wanganui. The “Green & Blacks” used the easterly and dominated territory but Wanganui led 20 – 10 at half-time.
