Hawke's Bay snatch Ranfurly Shield

SHARE

New Zealand rugby's premier challenge trophy, the Ranfurly Shield, changed hands on Sunday for the second time this season – passed from a team that won it for the first time in 56 years then held it for only nine days to another that last claimed it in 1969.

Otago province ended decades of heartbreak when it took the Shield from Waikato on August 23, returning to their Dunedin headquarters for the first time since 1957.

But at their first defence, Otago lost 19-20 to Hawke's Bay on Sunday and allowed the team to begin their first Shield tenure in 44 years.

Hawke's Bay will now defend the Shield, which is played for only in the holder's home games, against Counties Manukau at Napier on Saturday.
