    Final score: 18 - 10



    The Crusaders are very lucky we don't have a proper kicker, we missed 3 penalties. I'm glad we played so well with so many of our vital players out injured. Pienaar looked good at 10 today. Again there were some over cooked kicks but his distrubution was superb. That bump off his knee that led to the last Crusaders try was just unlucky. Would of been nice to take atleast 1 point today, but NOOOO the Sharks like f***ing themselves over.

    Yet again we didn't finish off our opportunities, penalty and try wise. Our forwards were awesome today but they need to calm down when we're near the tryline. Too many mistakes 5m out.

    Kankowski hand off on McCaw was class, and so was his try. Deysel also made McCaw his bitch.



    Oh well, home game against the Cheetahs next week.

    This is a good result for my two teams the Crusaders and the Chiefs. Actually the Hurricanes are probably even happier as now it has opened up the window for them (as well as opened up the window for the Stormers).

    Kankowski surely must be the Springbok number eight of the future. So strong and so fast he can make a real impact and even be seen as an extra lineout option. I can see big things for this guy in the future.

    It was quite a forgettable night for both teams due to the conditions. The Sharks must be happy to be going home at last from this part of the world....weather like tonight just makes the game look so messy.

    Yeah talk about the Sharks not taking their chances....though I suppose it all evens out from last years match in South Africa when they took their chances and beat the Crusaders in the last minute...when the Crusaders got greedy and went for the bonus point try after the whistle....some players got injured and lay on the ground...they turned it over....the Sharks ran it (well they had no choice being 6 points down) from their own half.....Ndugande or was it Bobo beat Scott Hamilton and scored in the corner.....then the conversion went over from the sideline and the Sharks had the victory....so last nights missing of their chances was kind of like karma....for the Chiefs supporters it was whether the Crusaders would allow the Sharks ANY points...which they didn't winning by 8.

    You failed to mention that DC or who they now call David Beckham of Rugby and Reuben Thorne. Brett was placed at 10 though he had a good game he wasnt entirely convincing. Bad handling with pienaar knocking the ball back to your goal line.
