Mitre 10 Cup

Banks inspires Tasman to victory

Marty Banks scored all of Tasman's points as the hosts registered a 15-10 Mitre 10 Cup win against Counties Manukau on Thursday.

The fly-half kicked five penalties to wrap up a third consecutive win for Tasman, eclipsing Jimmy Tupou's converted first-half try and a Piers Francis three-pointer.

Banks' fifth kick was the only score of a dull second half as Tasman moved up to the joint fourth in the Premiership.
