This is getting highly frustrating -- the way the Clan are killing us at the breakdown

We have the weakest backrow in the Crusaders history. The fact that we are still a chance of winning a title with a backrow of Christie, Sander and Douglas is quite surreal.

Thwaites is a tall unit for a prop. I thought he was one of the reserve locks for a moment.

Good try and well worked. Maybe now we will see the crusaders attack some ball and pass to the backline

Far too much dropped ball from the Crusaders. That try was off the back of Taylor dropping a ball you'd expect him to catch every single time.
