Hurricanes post big win over Drua

The Hurricanes scored 11 tries to thrash the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua 67-5 in Round 12 of Super Rugby Pacific at the Sky Stadium in Wellington today.

The visitors looked totally rattled and unorganised and allowed the Canes to score four unanswered tries through Josh Moorby (2),  Asafo Aumua and Billy Proctor to lead 26-0 at halftime.

Wes Goosen scored a brace of tries early in the second half and the scoring continued with Isiah Walker-Leawere, Salesi Rayasi, Billy Proctor, Moorby and Justin Sangster getting further tries.

Replacement winger Onisi Ratave scored the lone try for the Fijian Drua.

The Fijian Drua will face Moana Pasifika next in Auckland.
