In Air New Zealand Cup action, Tasman's bid to stay in contention for the playoffs is off to a shakey start in Palmerston North.

The Makos trail Manawatu 7-nil midway through the first half, despite dominating territory and possession.

Tasman must win with a bonus point and hope other results go its way this weekend to make the top eight.
