Tasman have scored the latest upset in the ITM Cup rugby competition, beating Auckland 30-28 in their cross-over match in Nelson.

Tasman, who beat Auckland in 2009, claimed just their second win of the season thanks to Andrew Goodman who scored 20 of his championship side's points, including the third try that ensured the win.

Tasman remain second from bottom in the Championship, while Auckland are 5th in the Premiership.
