Facken hell the Crusaders looked impressive. Clearly the top team out of all the matches thus far.

Proctor is a complete fool though. :shock:

Pathetic attempt to appease the mockers. The Blues are the form team in the comp and everyone knows it.

The Canes backs had got away with a few of those blind passes from the touchline but that last one cost them.

Just as they got back into the game, that one pass threw everything away.

How pissed would everyone have been. :lol:

I just can't understand why he threw that pass? A defensive lineout 10 metres out from your own line isn't the worst outcome, especially as the Crusaders lineout had been wobbly, and the Canes defensive maul had been strong all night. It was just dumb, there is no other way to describe it.

Proctor needed to do what Lam did on attack in the first half and Proctor what he did

It was a crazy decision. It reminded me of Billy Slater in the 2008 league final.

Good game.....top effort Crusaders with 5 tries to 1, so deserved winners. Onya Canes for pulling it back to 25-25.

The first two rounds have the best two teams at the top already......love this kiwi rugby.

Nice try but 5-1 try romp is easily the biggest win of the season so far. Accept your place at the top of the tree of success. The Blues can only but hope to catch up one day.

Campese would've been proud of that effort.

Wasn't Proctor. It was Van Wyk.

Was dumbfounded that we actually managed to keep in touch and when it got to 25-25 they was almost a sense of belief the incredible could happen.......then the stupidity returned :blush:

Realistically only thing that kept us in the game was the number of Saders penalties. Once they got that sorted out there was only one team that was going to win.

Pretty disappointing from the Canes :(

You not watching the games and commenting on the match threads is a clear win for SR Aotearoa :thumbup:

My humble impression of the two rounds so far is that the two teams with the two losses have played some braindead rugby. Throwing too many 20/80% offloads, shit kick-passes, embarrassing lineout competency etc.

The Blues and Crusaders have just let the Canes and Chiefs shit their own pants without ever really having to put the foot down to beat either side.

Looking forward to the top of the table clash.

Probably just not the Saders games.
