Commentators made a good point. Highlanders have great bench tonight so hopefully can go full 80 with the saders- last year they got torn apart in the last 5min

Taylor gets pinged for changing his line in the first minute or so, now the Clan are taking out players off the ball with impunity. WTF!

Hey, the Sadists took over a minute to gather their front row for a scrum when they had a man in the bin. Gotta be fair :smug:

They've been getting fisted all game in the set piece, a couple scrums were bordering on dangerous. And not just cuz we almost saw Scottie Barrett's weenie after one of them.

Crusaders show highlanders what a maul is meant to look like. Hope for the competition sake highlanders can stop saders getting the bonus point
