Crusaders power past Hurricanes in Christchurch

The Crusaders thwarted the Hurricanes’ hopes of recording their first victory of the 2021 Super Rugby Aotearoa campaign  as the men in red powered past their rivals 33-16 in Christchurch.

Codie Taylor was in great form and scooped the man-of-the-match award. The Canes started strongly, holding a 6-point lead as the first quarter drew to a close before they lost captain Ardie Savea to a yellow card. The Crusaders capitalised and got on the board via a Codie Taylor try.

Scott Barrett’s men then found some rhythm and built a score of 26 as the half-time whistle sounded.

The Crusaders carried their form into the second stanza and proved too dominant for the Canes to have a shot at the victory.
