Canterbury Crusaders Find Rugby Holy-land

“New Zealand’s Crusaders put up a persuasive case as world rugby’s champion provincial team with their unbeaten sweep through the Super 12 series” … sealing the tournament with a dominant 31-13 win over the ACT Brumbies. Earlier the Crusaders approached rugby nirvana in the final round – routing the NSW Warratah’s by an incredible 96-19. It was like a mismatched fathers vs. sons beach match. Competition records: biggest win, biggest margin of defeat, most tries scored in a match. It was NSW rugby’s biggest loss in 120 years of representative football, “the blackest day for the blue shirt” whimpers the shell-shocked Sydney Morning Herald. Can the AB’s continue the form? Alarm bells ring in Aussie.
