Stephen Donald: Flawless

Stephen Donald contributed 18 points via the boot to help Waikato notch a crucial 33-15 ITM Cup win over Tasman in Hamilton on Saturday.

Whilst the win was an important one for the Mooloo Men, the hosts will be disappointed by their failure to secure a four-try bonus point that could have sent them into the top four.

Waikato trailed 10-0 early in the match, but fought back to be take 16-10 lead at half-time. They then piled on the points in the second half to pull out to a comprehensive win.

It moves the Mooloos to 26 points on the ladder, eight behind top of the table Southland.

The scorers:

For Waikato:
Tries: Bradley 2, Tokula
Cons: Donald 3
Pens: Donald 4

For Tasman:
Tries: Pelenise, Moore
Con: Marshall
Pen: Alfeld
