Trailling 17-24 at the break the Highlanders showed no s igns of panic.

They pulled off the play of the match late in the first spell with centre Rob Thompson racing away to score.

Aaron Smith threw the ball to his Highlanders lock forward Tom Franklin who looked to be passing the ball back to Smith who was wrapping around.

The sneaky manoeuvre drew the Blues' defence sideways which left a gaping hole close to the ruck.

Thompson ran a superb line from the back of the ruck with Franklin delivering a pin-point inside ball to his midfielder who caught the Blues' defence napping.
