Highlanders beat Lions

June 13, 2017

The Otago highlanders have beaten the Lions 23-22 in a thrilling encounter in Dunedin.

A clutch penalty from Marty Backs with 5 minutes to go gave the Highlanders the lead and the victory.

Earlier in the game Naholo and Coltman scored tries for the home side with Sopoaga slotting 2 penalties and 2 conversions.

In reply the Lions scored 3 tries through Joseph, Seymour, and Warburton.

The result means that the Lions are now 2 wins from 4 games on their tour of New Zealand.

Their next game is against the NZ Maori this weekend.
