What a final folks! Both sides gave their all, but the Highlanders took their chances, most notably just before and just after half-time with tries by Dixon and Naholo. Doubts remain whether Dixon grounded the ball, but the TMO decided that he had. The Hurricanes had it all to do at that point, as they trailed by 10 points, but they closed the gap through Barrett who slotted two penalties. Savea also knocked on with the try-line at his mercy. A Banks drop goal ended the home side's challenge, and the Highlanders ground out the final few minutes to hold on for a famous victory, their first Super Rugby title. Score is 0-0

DROP GOAL. HIGHLANDERS. BANKS! 14-21. This time he has it, the Hurricanes can't close him down this time and he send the ball through the uprights! Crucially, they now lead by seven points. Score is 14-21

Unbelievable defence by the Hurricanes. Banks had dropped back into the pocket for the drop but he was closed down very quickly. The replacement fly-half then stepped his way past a number of defenders before offloading to Geldenhuys. Barrett and Savea somehow keep the big man from the try line. Score is 0-0

Smith kicks along the left-hand touchline. Barrett does brilliantly, fending off a number of Highlanders before finally managing to get the ball infield for Conrad Smith to clear. Score is 14-18
