    The Stormers (ranked 12) take on the Crusaders (top of the ladder)… after the Crusaders last effort against the Force (and if that form continues) the Stormers should be able to take this one out without raising a sweat. I’m serious… I may have a gay sig but I’m serious.

    i am considering turning all sigs off just because of it :)
  6. That is the shakiest I have seen the Crusaders all year when they played the Force. They are heading to the home of the Stormers, who may have just found some belief and confidence in themselves just before they head back to play under the watchful eye of some of the most fickle yet die hard fans in the Super 14 competition (I can never figure them out).

    I feel that this one may get close, But I'd say the Crusaders by less than 9 points.

    Well this may be the Cryusaders first defeat this year.....

    They are only getting their wins because a lot of the teams have not been up to standard this year.....any other year and the Crusaders would probably be in third place at the moment.

    I see worrying signs for the Crusaders up ahead............they look like they are yet to play a whole 80 minute performance that reaches their past standards. I fear that another team may "click" first before the playoffs and carry that winning edge all the way to the title.

    the force was a bump in the road. that was proabbly the crusaders worst performance all year. there is no possible way they can play that badly again. crusaders to bounce back from last week and get a comfortable win by about 10 points or so

    Despite the way it sounds and unbelieveable as it might be, Crusaders can finish seventh and Stormers fourth at the end of the regular season! It`s statistics! Crusaders can lose all remaining games while Stormers can win all! They can start from this game! Yeap, it`s pure theory, it`s math chances but, if there is still a hope, let`s play the ball ! :D

    Last weeks hiccup for the Crusaders is just going to make them stronger. Deans would have given them a right kick up the arse. I'm picking the Crusaders will pass 50 this week.

    Bold call 50+, but Crusaders never play badly two weeks in a row, easy enough bonus point victory here I think.

    1:36 7-0 to stormers

    thats why hookers dont pass intercept try to de wet barry

    Stormers win 28-15 :lol: ........ was i the only one who picked the Stormers to win?

    I think teams are starting to figure out how to beat them...... they seem really predictable and struggle without turnover ball

    This result gives the Tahs a great chance to finish in top spot and get that all important home final.

    For those who watched the game; did the crusaders play as poorly as the score suggests?

    Woooohooooo go you Stormers!!!
    Serves them right for resting players.
    The Tahs are in with a shot at a home final this year.

    tough road home for the crusaders now....they will be playin the bulls and brumbies away from home.....

    but the crusaders are a champion team and im sure they will bounce back against the bulls....
    we still havent seen a complete performance from the crusaders this season...we might see it against the bulls....deans is surely livid at the moment.
