Tolu Latu makes a great break and is stopped inside the Highlanders' 22! The hosts soon concede a turnover and Shane Christie boots the ball into touch when he hears the full-time hooter. That victoy sets up an all New Zealand final for the Highlanders against the Hurricanes in Wellington next weekend! They deserve the result as they were dominant in the second half. Commiserations to the Waratahs who gave their all but came up short and gave their all in a bid to hold on to their title. Score is 0-0
