Steelers win two in a row

10:42 am on 25 July 2011

Counties Manukau have made it two wins in a row in provincial rugby's ITM Cup after beating Tasman 32-23 in Blenheim.

The Steelers scored four tries to two to seal the bonus point win with wingers Sherwin Stowers and Ashee Tuala both grabbing a double.

Counties move up to second in the Championship standings, one point behind Manawatu, while Tasman remain bottom, without a point to show for their three outings.

Counties will now enjoy a rest during the week, before heading to Invercargill and a date with Ranfurly Shield holders Southland.
