Canterbury win the Ranfurly Shield!

Despite defending the Ranfurly Shield proudly in 2016, Waikato knew they had to lift a gear to have any chance of repelling the challenge of the Premiership leaders and did that by crossing for three tries to Canterbury’s two. But like all great teams, Canterbury poured the pressure on Waikato and took points at vital times through the accurate boots of Richie Mo’unga and Jordie Barrett.
