A howling nor-wester wind was the star of the show as Mid
Canterbury claimed a maiden Meads Cup win after beating North
Otago 26-20 in Ashburton today.
What happens next?
When North Otago fullback Ed Keohane restarted the game
during the first half the unbelievable happened.
The kick-off not only failed to go the required 10 metres,
but was picked up by the wind and carried backwards all the
way over his own dead ball line.
One of the commentators remarks that he has never seen the
like in 45 years of watching rugby.
