You can't see the form loose forward of the comp, the one that AC has been pumping harder then Tony Johnson pumps all things Crusaders and Tasman, making an impact against a guy who hasn't started a match this year? :shock:
I assume you're talking about Luke Jacobson when you're talking about the form loose forward in the comp? And Tom Sanders is the guy who hasn't started a match this year?

Haha nice try AC, you've been fluffing Blackadder so much I thought I best check your name isn't Todd.

(Incidentally, I've mostly agreed with your fluffing).

We should win on our awesome jersey alone, better than that boring and dull Crusaders jersey. :D

Was clear for all to see.

Rennie's Chiefs were an excellent team, but f*ck were they a dirty one.

Hahaha, comedy gold from a fan of a team that had two Frannks brothers at one stage, has Mooddy, and made card magnet Barrrett their captain.

Rennie’s teams played with controlled aggression. :twisted:

Institutionalised niggle.
Renns really built the hard edge and the niggle and encouraged that, and it’s sort of flowed through. There’s not many of us left from when Renns was here, but we certainly try to bring a bit of that where we can with the young fellas.

Tonight I'm actually most interested in seeing how McKenzie performs at 10. NZ currently don't have much depth at first-five, but with the assurance of having McKenzie as a legitimate possible 3rd 10 option behind Mo'unga and Barrett would be nice for the All Black coaches.

I find I can tell if the Crusaders are 'up' for a match within the first few minutes. I can tell if they are going to play well, or if they're going to have a shocker.

This challenge is a bit ridiculous

He almost pivoted out of the way. Do they expect him to dive away from the guy?

Crusaders playing very un-Crusader like. Guess the injuries really affecting them

The referee is only officiating one team. The Chiefs can do whatever they want at the breakdown. hey can clear out from the side, no clear release, and play the ball off their feet with impunity.

You can't reward 7 because a ruck had formed and he was using his hands regardless of what 4 was doing!

He's been doing it all game.

But he's foxing the ref so i suppose we must accept that this is McCaw karma

The next ten could be telling for the match. About this time a week ago the Crusaders were up 17-3 but went to the break all square. It’s the time the Crusaders usually make teams pay when they are at their ruthless best.

Anyone else think the Crusaders are using the dummy runner thing a bit too often. Sometimes looks a bit static in the backline.
