A bonus point win over North Harbour has kept Waikato's Air New Zealand Cup play-off hopes alive.

The 33-22 victory was the Mooloo's fifth win in six matches, snapping a two-game winning streak for Harbour.

Captain Liam Messam opened the scoring with a try after just two minutes, while Tim Mikkelson, Dwayne Sweeney and Henry Speight also dotted down for the home side, who now sit in fourth spot on the table on 26 points, level with Hawkes Bay.
