Well, the Crusaders have started to settle down and look like a very solid team, but its still all zeros on the board. A team that is fighting fatigue can’t continue to get close and not see any results. It will catch up to them eventually.
Three penalties on Crusader line-outs has been very brutal, as well as the missed penalty by Carter. Thankfully, the team from Christchurch has looked solid defensively and has been spending most of the half in Reds’ territory.
