Auckland win women's final
Sat, 27 Oct 2012 7:00p.m.
Auckland defender their women's provincial rugby championship title in emphatic style with a 38-12 win over Canterbury in the final at Christchurch.
An Auckland side boasting nine Black Ferns crossed for four of their five tries before halftime, when they led 27-0, and had a seventh title wrapped up when they extended the lead to 35-0 with 20 minutes remaining.
Canterbury scored the last two tries through winger Lucy Ryan and first five-eighth Kendra Cocksedge but they were consolation efforts against opponents who dominated most facets and finished the season unbeaten.
Auckland's first-half tries were scored by second five-eighth Onjeurlina Leiataua, centre Jade Le Pesq, fullback Hazel Tubic and No.8 Aroha Savage.
First five-eighth Bella Milo kicked a dropped goal soon after halftime, followed by Auckland's final try to flanker Lydia Crossman.
