Southland shearers performed well at the New Zealand Shearing Championships, in Te Kuiti from Thursday to Saturday.

The Southland team, made up of Casey Bailey and Ethan Pankhurst, placed fifth in the Province of Origin competition, while Invercargill shearer Nathan Stratford won a fifth placing in the open final.

Stratford also placed fourth in the open circuit final, beaten to third by fellow Southlander Darin Forde, of Winton.

Southerners were a cut above the rest in the junior sections.

Erica Reti, of Balfour, placed first in the junior woolhandling final, and Lionel Taumata, of Gore, was third in the junior shearing final.
