There were plenty of standouts for Taranaki, with Fiji-born Pita Gus Sowakula setting the tone early, while Tom Florence, Jared Proffit and Ricky Riccitelli were others in the pack who impressed.

It was only a couple of tries from nothing that kept Otago in the game including a try from Vilimoni Koroi as Taranaki put one hand on the trophy early in the second half.

The premiership final between Waikato and Tasman will be held at 6.05pm today.
