Monday October 7, 2019 05:10 p.m.
Tasman have continued their superb season with a 52-6 demolition of Northland at Trafalgar Park. After a slow start the Mako exploded to life in the 26th minute when Will Jordan finished off a classy break by Highlanders-bound Mitch Hunt – and it wasn't the last time those two names were mentioned.
Opinion: Defensive effort has Mako bound for Blenheim
Sunday September 29, 2019 05:13 p.m.
After struggling over the past fortnight to recapture the attacking rhythm and defensive energy they brought to their first five games it was refreshing to see a resurgence in both areas, but particularly without the ball in hand. The in-your-face, energised defensive attitude that set the likes of Canterbury, Wellington, Taranaki and Counties Manukau on their heels was back last night … with a vengeance.

Quin Strange relishes Mako momentum
Thursday September 19, 2019 03:40 p.m.
Despite Tasman reeling off six straight wins to open their 2019 Mitre 10 Cup season, Mako vice-captain Quinten Strange says there is no problem keeping the players’ feet firmly on the ground. The Nelson College product, a Mako since 2016 and a Crusader since 2017, said while expectation and hype surrounding the team had increased as the wins stacked up, the feeling in camp was no different.
