Cooper on target in Reds win

Quade Cooper played his part as the Reds overcame the Highlanders

Quade Cooper kicked 14 points and produced an impressive all-round display as the Reds achieved their first Super Rugby victory in Dunedin with a thrilling 34-33 win over the Highlanders.

The Reds scored four tries to three - James Hanson, Liam Gill, Jake Schatz and Will Genia crossing for the visitors - and deserved to hold on in front of 12,000 people in a cliff-hanger at Forsyth Barr Stadium.

It was the Reds' fifth win from seven games while the Highlanders only received a bonus point as consolation after their fifth consecutive loss.
