5:54 am on 16 August 2011

Waikato have surged to the top of the ITM Cup premiership with a near perfect week.

Waikato have won 4 in a row including a convincing victory over Canterbury and yesterday lept to the top of the standings with a 25-10 win over Otago.

Waikato first five Stephen Donald says it's good to be on a roll.

Waikato have 24 points, Taranaki 23, Bay of Plenty and Canterbury 22 and Auckland 20.

Meanwhile 27-year-old Donald has finally confirmed a 3-year-deal with English club Bath after initially having a few visa problems.
