Nelson College spent most of the last 10 minutes camped on their try line but held on to beat Otago Boys' 27-19 in the South Island First XV final at Forsyth Barr Stadium this afternoon.
Ta'eiloa carried the ball forward countless times and Hurley slipped over for a try and set up another with a brilliant offload.
But Nelson defended stoutly when it was called on to do so and sealed the win with a couple tries midway through the second spell.
