    The men from Wellington looked dead and buried trailing by 11 points heading into the last 10 minutes, but scored two late tries to win 26-23 at Jose Amalfitani Stadium.

    Fullback Jordie Barrett kicked four penalties, including a monster from 63 metres, while replacement prop Alex Fidow's try with 10 minutes remaining gave the 'Canes hope, before replacement scrumhalf Jamie Booth dotted down with three minutes to go.

    The home side had led 10-9 at half-time.
