When the Counties Manukau Rugby game appeared on the T.V screen I got really excited and DIDN’T think about leaving the lounge. The Manukau team had a game against the Taranaki rugby team. Counties had an epic win last week against Hawke’s Bay in Napier. I wonder if they can still hold onto the shield.
As Counties kicked off the went running to tackle, Stowers take them over halfway. When Hika Elliot scored the first opening try I was so happy because it was only 4 minutes into the game . Counties scored a lot of tries while Taranaki scored only one. The game was really tough, NAHH just kidding Taranaki got smashed by Manukau. It was full time and the score was 44-7.
At the end of the day Manukau made a great win while Taranaki went home sad.
