The NPD Tasman Trophy Grand Final on Queens Birthday Monday was Club rugby at its best with test match intensity. The game went down to the wire with the lead changing hands numerous times in the second half and key players stepping up to keep their club in the game. The final score of 18-15 to Nelson reflected their dominance of possession and territory throughout the whole of the first half and key second half moments.

Competition leaders Wanderers would have travelled over to Seddon feeling confident taking on last placed East Coast. However rugby is a funny game at times and anything can happen in a two horse race. This was proven as East Coast was denied a deserved victory when a late try to Wanderers tied up the match 26 – all.
