North Otago has its hands back on the Meads Cup.

The Old Golds claimed the symbol of heartland rugby supremacy with a 33-19 win over Wanganui in the final in Oamaru this afternoon.

It was their third Meads Cup win, and first since 2010, delighting the home crowd of about 1200.

Workhorse prop Meli Kolinisau, dominant lock Charles Elton and veteran halfback Robbie Smith were the stars for the home team.

The Old Golds made a cracking start, racking up 22 unanswered points.

A highlight of the first half was a dropped goal from popular front-rower Ralph Darling.
