Ardie Savea has been in fine form to start the Super Rugby Aotearoa season.
Taking over the captaincy, Savea has shone for the Hurricanes and put on a display against the Crusaders, albeit in vain.
Included in Savea's highlight package from the clash was this barnstorming run from his own 22 and his attempted cross kick for Wes Goosen that almost stood up for what would have been an incredible score.

Another All Black who has sensational to start the season is Crusaders hooker Codie Taylor who scored twice as the 2019 Super Rugby champions secured a 33-16 victory.
The Crusaders finished with five tries to two, led by Taylor who scored a double, while he set up Richie Mo'unga (four conversions) for his try.
