There was no winner when Taula South and Taula North locked horns in the latest round of the Apia Rugby Union's All Stars tournament at the Apia Park.

They managed to hold the lead despite North dominating territory.

Hugo Fata stretched Taula South's lead when he scored, 17-9.

But Taula North was not done. They responded with a penalty conversion by Fa'avae, 17-12, before Sam Afia scored the equaliser at the death.

Ionatana Tino, of the Taula North, the game was a tough clash.

"Today's game was not easy," he said. 

"I know we made unnecessary mistakes and my boys were a little impatient and giving away penalties, and that is something we will work on to improve. Overall, I am happy with the outcome."
