Seven-try Crusaders beat Chiefs, Waratahs and Brumbies win

24 febrero 2018 12:23

The Crusaders started the defence of their Super Rugby title with a 45-23 bonus-point win over the Chiefs, while the Waratahs snatched a last-gasp victory and the Brumbies also triumphed on Saturday.

In August, Crusaders were crowned champions for the first time since 2008 and set about trying to claim back-to-back titles with a success at AMI Stadium.

Scott Robertson's side outscored their New Zealand rivals by seven tries to two, finishing strongly after Chiefs led 20-19 midway through the second half.

The champions led 19-3 following five-pointers from Matt Todd, Richie Mo'unga and Jordan Taufua, but Dave Rennie's men cut the gap to only two points at half-time courtesy of scores from Sam Cane and Solomona Alaimalo.

Damian McKenzie's second penalty edged Chiefs in front, but captain Sam Whitelock charged over to put Crusaders back in the lead and they were given breathing space when a penalty try was awarded after Ryan Crotty was taken out by a high tackle when diving for the corner.

Intercept tries from George Bridge and Manasa Mataele late on put Crusaders out of sight.
