Otago beats Canterbury 27-24 in Super 15

Otago beats Canterbury 27-24 in Super 15

Otago winger Hosea Gear scored a match-winning try 10 minutes from fulltime to give the Highlanders a 27-24 win over the Canterbury Crusaders on Saturday, making it back-to-back wins to open the Super 15 season.
The match ended in drama as the scoreboard clock twice misled the home team into believing time was up as it desperately defended a three-point advantage.
The clock had fallen out of synchronization with the official timekeepers and led the Highlanders to twice kick the ball to touch, thinking that would end the game.
The referee had to tell the Highlanders there was time still to play, making the final moments more nerve-racking for the hosts.
