The offside line at the breakdown is extremely, umm. Tight.

Bit of a messy game. I suspect it's quite damp out there.

Good D by the Blues but not able to do much else. Relieved not to concede an intercept try right on halftime. 13-3 not too bad. Could easily be 27-3 with the weight of possession in favour of the Crusaders.

Can't see things improving much in the second half though. Crusaders by 20 odd.

If it hasn't taken too much out of them, the Blues have to be happy with the scoreline given the stats.

Nah, it's being called the same both ways so we are all good.

I've been encouraged by Greathue's kicking game. Hasn't always come off but that fact he's using it so much is great... another kicking weapon in the ABs backline would be awesome

Fcuk Nonu is a dumb cnut. Dirty prick, lucky that's not a card as he is about once every two games.

He lost it. Not sure I agree the tackle height is fine though.

The face of the Blues' tackler after it was given as not high was a bit of a giveaway. He was seriously worried

I've just watched it several more times (Live pause and rewind is great) and I would have called it high. Always above the shoulder line.

But those are the breaks and no real damage done thankfully.

Hit him in the jaw and rode up to the temple, guy was falling.

Play on.

Seriously, why bother with TMOs if they're going to be this shit?
