Wellington 32 -13 Southland The Lions handled the wet weather better than the Stags in charging to a bonus point win in the capital. Both the backs and forwards combined well with some excellent execution going down to make mince meat of one of the better defenses in the competition. It's not season over for Southland, but the Lions have served notice they will be there at the business end. Player to take note of, Wellington halfback Dan Kirkpatrick for the EOYT. Henry and co are making a mistake not looking at the ANZC talent coming though, Kirkpatrick has been turning in some pretty decent efforts recently.
