Turbos shock Lions in Palmerston North

9:08 am on 5 September 2010

Manawatu have stunned Wellington 36-24 in sunny conditions in Palmerston North to record their first win of the national provincial championship.

Wellington were beaten all over the park, consistently turning over ball and failing to match the Turbos' intensity and aggression.

In other results on Saturday, Northland ended Southland's unbeaten run, 33-22 in Whangarei, and Waikato beat North Harbour 36-27 at Albany with All Black centre Richard Kahui coming off the bench for 30 minutes as he continues a comeback from his latest shoulder injury.
