TAURANGA - FORMER Nadroga and Fiji 7s forward Nemani Naqusa was in top form as he helped his Tasman side move to the top of the ITM Cup competition after beating Bay of Plenty 56-27 on Sunday.

The bonus point win ensured Tasman draw level on points with Canterbury.

Nagusa played at blindside flanker and worked well with his losse trio of skipper Shane Christie at openside flanker and Liam Squire at number eight.

Former Flying Fijian lock Tevita Cavubati was on the bench for Tasman.

Former Fijian U20 wing Nemani Maritino played on the wing for Bay of Plenty and scored a try in the loss.

Scores from Quentin MacDonald, Tom Marshall, Shane Christie, Kieron Fonotia, James Lowe, Marty Banks, David Havili saw Tasman take the five points on offer.

Meanwhile, Banks kicked a further 21 points to finish what was an entertaining game at ASB Baypark Stadium on a personal 26-point haul.

Kane Hames, Joe Royal, Nemani, Johan Bardoul were the Steamers' try-scorers but the Makos were simply too good on Sunday, as they followed up putting 35 points on Hawke's Bay last weekend with this impressive away performance.

Tasman's next fixture is a trip to Auckland on Sunday.
