Otago snatch draw in Nelson

4:27 pm on 13 September 2008

Otago scored a try right on full time to snatch a 21 all draw with Tasman in an Air New Zealand Cup game in Nelson this afternoon.

Chris Noakes, who earlier in the season landed an injury time 45 metre penalty to give Otago a win over Southland, could not repeat his goal kicking heroics today and missed the conversion from wide out.

The game was possibly Tasman's last first division game at Trafalgar Park.

The side if targetted to be dropped from the Air New Zealand Cup next season as New Zealand Rugby trim the competition by two teams.

Tasman are appealing the decision.
