The Hurricanes scored a stunning last-minute win over the Blues in their Super Rugby match at Eden Park, Auckland, on Friday night.

The Blues had been leading 25-19 until a breakaway run by Hurricanes first-five Beauden Barrett put captain Conrad Smith over near the posts with only a few seconds on the clock. Barrett then converted to seal the win.

The Hurricanes also gained a bonus point by scoring four tries to one in their 26-25 victory.

Smith scored two tries and Cory Jane and Andre Taylor one each, while Ma'a Nonu got the only try for the Blues, in the first half.

Barrett and the Blues' Lachie Munro scored all the other points from the boot. The Hurricanes led 19-16 at the break.
