Canes winded by H'landers

  • Canes winded by H'landers

An Andre Taylor penalty shot close to fulltime which missed came back to haunt the Hurricanes as it went down to the Highlanders 18-16 at Westpac Stadium in Wellington tonight.

Hurricanes halfback TJ Perenara scored the only try in what was a scrappy match dominated by turnover ball and the referees whistle. Beauden Barrett kicked two penalties in the match and Taylor added one after Barrett was injured.

Highlanders first five-eighth Hayden Parker was the difference in the match kicking five penalties and a dropped goal which proved to be the decisive moment in the game.
