    Waikato have got revenge over Canterbury in the Farah Palmer Cup final - beating the four time defending champions 22-20 in Christchurch

    Waikato have got revenge over Canterbury in the Farah Palmer Cup final - beating the four time defending champions 22-20 in Christchurch


    A year ago Waikato were pipped for the title in the dying minutes.

    The visitors had a shaky start to the decider - they were down 13-3 at half time.

    But two yellow cards to Canterbury lock Lucy Jenkins and number eight Stacey Niao for repeated infringements proved costly for the home side, and Waikato capitalised - scoring two tries.

    Canterbury had a chance late to close the gap with a try to skipper Stephanie Te Ohaere-Fox, but it was too late.

    Waikato captain Chyna Hohepa told Sky Sport her side had to dig deep.
