One of the main concerns for the Crusaders coming into this game was fatigue. They have been on the road all season because of the earthquakes in Christchurch.
So far the Reds have seemed to have more speed and the Crusaders have been getting lucky to not give up points on a couple of Reds breaks. It could be nerves, it could be fatigue. We’ll continue to see how it plays out. It’s still early and if it’s fatigue for the Crusaders, this could be a long day.
