REDS 12 - 11 BLUES
80 The Blues get a final chance to win the match when they receive a line-out inside the Reds' 22. They fail to capitilise on this opportuny as Mealamu's throw is awry! The ball comes out on the Reds' side and Ben Lucas boots it into touch! The final whistle goes and the Reds start to celebrate their narrow victory. It was a close affair and the Blues could so easily have been the victors. But it wasn't to be and the hosts continue with their fine form.
78 The Blues attack with their forwards inside the Reds' 22 but concede a turnover when Mealamu knocks on!
75 PENALTY, REDS, COOPER! 12-11. Cooper adds another three-pointer after the Blues front-row is pinned for illegal scrummaging!
72 The Reds string together several phases but seem to make little headway. They eventually gain a reprieve when Williams enters a ruck from the side.
70 Genia breaks out from inside his half and slips through three tackles. He is eventually brought to ground but Reds retain possession and at the next breakdown Genia spots a gap behind the defence and launches a perfectly-weighted box kick which rolls into touch inside the Blues' 22.
67 Brendon O'Connor tries to take the ball over the advantage line but knocks on after taking a big hit from Jakes Schatz!

62 The Blues attack deep inside the Reds' 22 but lose possession when Williams is pinned for holding onto the ball on the ground.

58 Ranger and Dom Shipperley compete for a ball but Shipperley gains the upperhand but when he takes the ball into contact, he suffers the same fate as Ioane, as three Blues defenders manage to hold him up in the tackle!
56 Ioane takes ball into contact but Keven Mealamu, Steven Luatua and Frank Halai manage to hold him up. When the maul becomes static, the Blues get the put-in at the scrum.
54 Cooper gets a chance to regain the lead for his side, after Ali Williams is penalised for playing the ball on the ground. His effort is wide of the mark, however!
50 The Reds are on the attack deep inside the Blues' 22! They've taken the ball through 17 phases and their forwards are now trying to get over the advantage line with pick up and goes! The Blues' defence stands firm, however!

43 Ranger takes the ball into contact but is knocked backwards by a double hit from James Slipper and Ed Quirk!
Second half Noakes gets the second half started! His kick is gathered in the air by Rob Simmons and the Reds launch a drive, from inside their 22, when he comes to ground.
REDS 9 - 11 BLUES
40 From a scrum, just outside the Blues' 22, Genia is pinned for not putting the ball into the scrum. Weepu kicks for touch and that's the final act of the half as referee Craig Joubert halts proceedings with a shrill blast of his whistle. It's been an entertaining opening period and, as the scoreline suggests, a fairly even contest. Both sides have played with plenty of flair which should make for an interesting second half.
38 It's all happening here as both sides are attacking from all areas of the field! The match is eventually brought to a stand-still when Angus Ta'avao knocks on!
36 Braid breaks out from inside his 22 and gives an inside pass to Ranger, who crashes into Cooper! Both players get to their feet after the collision and continue to play on!

31 TRY, BLUES, WILLISON! 9-11. The Blues show great patience, close to the Reds' try-line, and take the ball through 12 phases. Piri Weepu spins the ball out wide to Jackson Willison, who spots a gap. He takes it and shakes off a tackle from Jono Lance before crossing over in the left-hand corner!
29 PENALTY, REDS, COOPER! 9-6. Cooper succeeds with his third penalty after McCartney is penalised again for illegal scrummaging!
26 PENALTY, BLUES, NIKORO! 6-6. Albert Nikoro lands a monster penalty from the halfway mark! This after Rob Simmons is blown up for obstruction
