They rested a couple players though didn't they? I know McCaw was one, but who else? In any case it's not a good sign for them if resting just a couple players sees them lose...

They rested the best 5/8 in the World also so that didn't help. By the time he came on it was all over.

Nevertheless... I still expected more from the Crusaders to be honest. Mind you, the Tahs struggled over there with no Rogers, but still beat the Stormers in a close one... they played attrociously against the Bulls though.

The game was over my arse

Carter and Mcdonald came on at half time with the score at 13-3, if they were good enough they could have easily won the game.

I didn't see the game but I've never like Deans since he cost us a Super 12 ***le against the Brumbies a few years ago when he played McIntyre instead of Mehrtens.

I knew resting players against the Stormers would bite them in the ass.

That was a shocker of a match for the Saders! Didn't the Brumbies score 5 or so tries in the space of 15 minutes or something in that game?

Apparently you didn't see Chris Walker's defence in the 2004 NRL GF...

yeah i dont even know who was in the 2004 grand final. if it wasnt parramatta i wouldnt have watched it as i was working night shift back then. and i happened to start at 10pm when the game kicked off about that on a sunday night (i hate the sunday night grand finals i loved it when it was the afternoon)

i saw the knights eels and the warriors roosters. also another one not last year but the year b4 in taupo. could have been the game you are talking about but i have no idea who was playing or what happened (i spent 200 bucks on alcahol, but not all of it was for me)

i never miss a super final though, even if the blues are in it

Giving the Stormers at start at home means defeat. Who knows what would have happened if Carter started they might still have been down but Carter would have been into the game rather than trying to get with the flow of the game.
