The Otago Highlanders defied a late fightback from the Wellington Hurricanes to post a 35-31 win in the Super 15 competition on Friday.
The Hurricanes scored three tries to two but the boot of Lima Sopoaga guided the Highlanders to victory as he converted nine of 10 attempts.
The Highlanders led 18-9 at half time but could not maintain their dominance in the second half.
“It was a tricky half where penalties ruled the day and we couldn’t get into it,” Hurricanes captain Conrad Smith said.
“Then we coughed up a try and there were a few 50-50 moments.”
The first try of the match came from Phil Burleigh in the 50th minute.
