Bayleys Tasman Trophy Final - Nelson 35 v Marist 0

Nelson mercifully transformed a first-half yawn into an enterprising victory, overwhelming Marist 35-0 in Saturday's Bayleys Real Estate Tasman Trophy club final at Trafalgar Park. Neither team had much to enthuse about in a frustrating first half riddled with turnovers and breakdown penalties, although Galbraith Group Nelson at least cashed in on two of their opportunities to take a 13-0 lead into halftime. But they returned after the break to add a further 22 points into the wind, including three well-taken tries, while also shutting down all of Wakatu Hotel Marist's muted attempts to salvage anything from the series decider.
