Canterbury's All Blacks contingent have led their side to a victory over North Harbour in the opening game of the Mitre 10 Cup.
In the Premiership clash, hosts North Harbour put in an impressive display to lead 22-21 at halftime, largely thanks to five penalties from Bryn Gatland, but the inclusion of Richie Mo'unga after halftime proved crucial as Canterbury stormed home to take a 43-29 victory.
