Weepu with the conversion from wide right, and he just hooks it left. Hurricanes 13 Blues 16 - 50th minute
The Blues have totally dominated the start of the first half. Superior fitness showing through perhaps?
55 mins gone - A few messy phases in midfield, Hurricanes steal the ball and give it the old kick and chase...
Savea is after it and very nearly gets a finger on it in goal. They're going upstairs. Stand by.
Big big call. Penalty try and a yellow card for Frank Halai.
A very tough call, Halai was judged to have deliberately knocked the ball out of the in-goal, which is a yellow-card offence.
The debates will rage tomorrow over this one. I'm not certain a try would have been scored without Halai's touch.
England's target down to single figures. They will take the one-day series 2-1, the same result as the T20 series. I think the Black Caps would take a 2-1 loss in the test series in a heartbeat.
But Barrett slots the conversion. Hurricanes 20 Blues 16 - 57 mins
Scores are tied in the cricket.
The Blues earn a penalty and Weepu knocks it over. It's a one point lead now. Hurricanes 20 Blues 19 - 61 mins.
Great way to bounce back from losing a man and conceding a try for the Blues. Pop down the other end and pick up three points.
And that's it. England win the third one-dayer against New Zealand by five wickets. England add the ODI series to their T20 victory. The first test begins in Dunedin on March 6.

Fifteen minutes to go, Blues still have 14 players but not for much longer, with Halai due back on the field very soon.
Frank Halai returns to the field from the sin bin, and Liaki Moli will replace Culum Retallick at lock.
We have a real arm-wrestle here. The Blues have an opportunity now with lineout five metres from the Hurricanes line.
Ranger goes close out wide but is met face on with a thumping tackle from Conrad Smith.
But it's still alive, the ball is recycled and Ranger dives at the line. TRY!
Great patience from the Blues. Ranger failed at first but came back stronger to score a fantastic try. Blues back in front.
Weepu drags the conversion to the left. A four point lead.
Eight minutes to go. Hurricanes 20 Blues 24
Five to go. Conrad Smith has failed a concussion test and won't be back for the Hurricanes.
WHAT A TRY! 80 metres from one end of the field to the other. Finished once again from Halai. Blues have surely won this one.
Sir John Kirwan will come away as a winner from his first game in charge of the Blues. 2012 is already a distant memory.
Weepu slots the conversion. Blues 31 Hurricanes 20
The Blues also picked up a bonus point with their fourth try of the night there.
Official crowd tonight is 10,662.
Blues attacking again, into the 79th minute now.
Noakes has a cheeky pop at a dropkick. Snapped up by Savea and the Hurricanes have the ball, but once again they are penalised.
The Blues are asking each other "have we got four tries" as they decide what to do now..
Weepu kicks for goal and his succesful penalty is greeted with the sound of the hooter.
Full time: Hurricanes 20 Blues 34
Great start to the Super Rugby campaign by the Blues. They showed a lot of character to come back from conceding a try and going a man down. The streets of Auckland will be rocking tonight.
