Crusaders hold off Chiefs

2012-07-06 11:20

Cape Town - The Crusaders kept their Super Rugby playoff hopes alive with a tension-charged 28-21 win over the Chiefs in Hamilton on Friday.

The Crusaders leapt out to a 20-6 lead 20 minutes into the game but were reeled in by the hosts and forced to defend grimly in the final minutes to secure the valuable win in a frenetic atmosphere at a packed Waikato Stadium.

Trailing by a converted try, the Chiefs won two penalties after the siren as they hammered the Crusaders defence in a desperate bid to cobble a draw, but were denied when inside centre Sonny Bill Williams was held up on the line.

While Williams might regret not passing out wide to the right where the Chiefs had a three-man overlap, the Crusaders were deserving victors despite having the benefit of a controversial 52nd-minute try awarded by television review.

The win gave the Crusaders valuable breathing space in the wildcard berths for the playoffs, while the Chiefs have already sewn up the New Zealand conference and will contest the postseason.

Number eight Kieran Read gave the Crusaders the early running with a try in the first 10 minutes and flyhalf Dan Carter slotted the conversion and a drop goal minutes later.

Luke Romano capitalised on some clever work by scrumhalf Andy Ellis who dribbled a kick into his path at the left corner allowing the lock to cross for the Crusaders' second try in the 20th minute.

The Chiefs backs found their line, however, and scrumhalf Tawera Kerr-Barlow popped up a perfectly weighted pass two metres out from the line that towering lock Brodie Retallick swooped on and barged over for their first try.

Cruden put the Chiefs within four points at half-time but missed a penalty shot four minutes after the break to release the pressure.

The Chiefs were stunned minutes later when Ellis, brought down short of the line by a Kerr-Barlow tackle, was awarded a try after a lengthy video review.

The hosts re-gathered, however, as Williams, having been subdued all night, made a brilliant cameo appearance to plant the ball over the line after rolling over a pile of tacklers.

Dan Carter shrugged off a couple of earlier misses to slot a penalty and give the Crusaders a seven-point buffer with 18 minutes to play.

The Chiefs were denied a try on video review six minutes later, when wing Asaeli Tikoirotuma was judged to have planted the ball a fraction too wide at the right corner as he was brought down in a tackle.

The Crusaders called on their formidable defence to close out the match as they consigned the Chiefs to only their third loss of the season.

    A fantastic game to watch but the Chiefs was screwed by, guess who, NZ Ref of the Year...

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 11:25

      Wow, always blame the ref, poor girl! Why don't you blame Peter de Villiers as well?

      jason.children - 2012-07-06 11:25

      Greta game of rugby, but SBW had a 3 man overlap and chose to go himself..............so ref or no ref they made mistakes!! Those two sides are pure class!

      ej.smith.589 - 2012-07-06 11:30

      thats cos $SBW was trying to be a hero but failed superbly. But you got to admit his slam dunk try over 4-5 Sader players was all class.

      Taurus.Blue1 - 2012-07-06 11:30

      @cape, I could not care who the winners were in this match and YES the stupid Bryce Lawrence should take a hike, he IS the worst ever friggen refs. Useless, just like your comment

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 11:36

      @Taurus - I did not know your friend Bryce was the ref! Thought it was Steve Walsh! hahahahaah

      morne.vandyk.58 - 2012-07-06 11:37

      Taurus, Wrong ref. Welsh was the ref.

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 11:48

      But Bryce still cocked up, as TMO???

      jono.qmann - 2012-07-06 11:48

      @Taurus since u on school holiday doesn’t mean your little bit of brains you have has to go out the window and also you blue balls supporters must stop blaming the ref please! O and one more thing...this doesn’t benefit the bulls does it? More pressure on tonight’s game lol SFL

      jason.children - 2012-07-06 11:48

      Sorry Taurus that was an epic fail!

      john.comyn.18 - 2012-07-06 11:49

      Why don't we blame Sepp Blatter rather than PDV. Good result if you are a Stormers supporter. Hoping the Sharks can win this evening but still would like to see the bulls go into the play-offs and get into a semi. Seeing as the Bulls are now officially the Stormers bunnies it would be nice to draw them in a semi.

      sean.bagley.50 - 2012-07-06 11:51

      The Play-offs are beckoning for the seven-time champions Crusaders that's for sure.It was always gonna be an epic clash with so muh at stake,you wouldn't have wanted it any other way.A game that could've gone either way.

      Taurus.Blue1 - 2012-07-06 12:24

      @cape, I was referring to the stupid TMO... Did you actually watch the game. I know Steve, I love myself, Walsh was the ref @jono who the hell cares what you think or say... crawl back under your rock

      Taurus.Blue1 - 2012-07-06 12:25

      @jason, what was an epic fail???

      Taurus.Blue1 - 2012-07-06 12:44

      To all you 'clever' people, please go back and read my first comment, where DID I mention that BL the ref was??? Stupid much??? Poor TMO decision, which was the TMO = NZ Ref of the Year - Get it clever people @Jason, epic fail right back at you

      Skinfaxi - 2012-07-06 23:47

      Taurus you are dead right. The commentators reffered to his decision as "bizzare". It is very obvious that this NZ ref of the year does not understand the concept of a double movement. Last week New Zealands best ref demonstrated that he does not understand obstruction. As a result we have two NZ teams in the running who should not be there at all. Steve Walsh hasn't got the faintest idea of what is going on in the scrums.

  • marcus.daily3 - 2012-07-06 11:23

    Did'nt watch, but a friend tells me the ref was poor? can anybody confirm? Oh by the way Andy Murray sucks!

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 11:26

      Your friend must be blind! I sense a fear of the Saders and everyone was hoping the Saders will blow this one! Go Saders!!

      Taurus.Blue1 - 2012-07-06 11:33

      @marcus, both Steve Walsh and Bryce Lawrence once again took centre stage.

      steyts - 2012-07-06 11:53

      Maori I was hoping for a crusaders win because this mean the stormers now a shot at ending top of log after the round robin phase...

      Stormkaap - 2012-07-06 12:17

      What amazes me is how Macaw gets away with deliberate obstruction, hands in the ruck and the taking up of space in offside position making it almost impossible to get quickly recycled possesion. Someone must frikking stomp on his hands and legs! cause the refs just allow his nonsense all the time.

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 12:22

      @Stormkaap - you see what you want to see! If that was the case, then the great Richie would not have been able to play rugga for 10 years. He is just good! Finish en klaar. I propose you file a complaint with the IRB and request that they ban Richie from rugby. Please copy me with your complaint!

      koos.vandermerwe.338 - 2012-07-06 12:30

      The ref were bad and the TMO (Bryce) played his part as ussual. This is just to confirm my prediction at the beginning of the S15. Crusader will play in the final as they need the $$ to pay for that small stadion.

      paul.sdoow - 2012-07-06 12:31

      maori lets have a poll who gets away with murder more brussouw . pocock or mccheat ? all very similar players obviously but difference is in the extremity of the infringement . we not denying mcheat a good player we adding that his greatness is also penalties at times. blatant obstruction is not what we need teach our school boys as you always say they should watch nz games?

      Skinfaxi - 2012-07-06 23:51

      For the last three weeks of super rugby the NZ games have come up with the result which would see the most NZ teams going through. This competition is nearly as rigged as the RWC was.

  • cape.maori - 2012-07-06 11:23

    Go Crusaders! What a nailbiting game, to the the very end! Might be the dress rehearsal of the grand finale in NZ!!

      david.boswel - 2012-07-06 11:30

      judging by your last game id say this was a bit of luck and bad decision making by the chiefs,but yeah please let this be your dress rehearsal for the final then most teams will beat you...!!!

      orrinf8 - 2012-07-06 11:30

      Stephan, why are you wasting your time with this SNOT ? she's another one craving attention !!

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-06 16:17

      So serious question for you Maori. Do you support other countries at the Olympics as well? What about cricket and other sports? Mainly wonder about at the Olympics. Just a plain straight forward answer is fine, no need to be a douche.

  • skhona.luswazi - 2012-07-06 11:23

    Thanks Crusaders Now Stormers go boys stretch that lead na mean

      orrinf8 - 2012-07-06 11:37

      HERE WE GO STORMERS, HERE WE GO !!!

      explain?

      deon.louw.7505 - 2012-07-06 11:54

      Stormers could go tops with a win and 4 tries, maybe 15th time lucky? Cheetahs has been leeking tries but also scoring a few.

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 12:05

      Stormers haven't scored four tries this season yet, including games against the Blues, Lions, and Force (bottom three)! Not sure it will happen tomorrow.

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-08 08:06

      So where is the bonus point?

  • temakarini.mapu - 2012-07-06 11:25

    Walsh had a shocker, Chiefs set piece was non-existant, Crusaders were at their cheating best. Feel sorry for the team that has to play the latter in the playoffs.

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 11:36

      That may be the Stormers!!!

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 11:28

      This is how rugga should be played - no kick and chase crap the whole game hoping for opposition penalties.

      stephen.axtell.7 - 2012-07-06 11:32

      No , there is a difference he had a huge overlap but glory boy tried to go himself. Proudly anti South African Silver Fern supporters

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 11:50

      He did score an incredible try earlier...

      Stormkaap - 2012-07-06 12:21

      Yeah Stephen, you only see the bad. How about his offload when hemmed in on the touchline, his ability to always beat the first tackle and his incredible try.. He did fluff a chance for a draw..But a joke he certainly is not. Probably the most skillful center in world rugby

      stephen.axtell.7 - 2012-07-06 13:29

      @Stormkaap, I just hope you are not one of many on here who at the first sign of a bad patch of form to one of the South African sportsman come on here and scream that they should be dropped and never play again...

      Stormkaap - 2012-07-06 13:44

      Stephen if that was the case then i would have called for M Steyn's head which i did not.. The head I did call for is Spies's , he has been crap for years now!

  • LaBlue - 2012-07-06 11:28

    Okay, now if the Stormers won't choke, we might be able to by pass the Chiefs and end up #1. Looks like the Bulls won't make the playoffs ... AGAIN, after the Sharks beat them tonight.

      vandeventer.sarel - 2012-07-06 11:39

      Hahaha. If the stormers finishes 1st and the bulls 4th and then the bulls beat 5th place in the knock outs, the bulls wil travel to newlands for a semi final.

      theunis.vorster.3 - 2012-07-06 11:44

      Even if the Bulls go dwon to the Sharks, they will still make it to the finals... Bulls are still ahead of the Crusaders and non of the other teams can pass them this weekend. That leaves the last game against the Lions, which the Bulls Will have to win to go through, which I think will be done with points to spare. But it may bring some interisting fina matchesl... The Stormers may yet choke again, against the Bulls that is...

      theunis.vorster.3 - 2012-07-06 11:45

      Correction, only the crusaders could pass the bulls, which they did... But none of the other team can do it this weekend...

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 11:55

      Not sure how you work that semi-final out. The lowest placed winner of the "quarter finals" plays 1st on the log, and the higher placed winner plays 2nd. If the Bulls win the 4th vs 5th playoff (probably against the Crusaders) it will depend entirely on what happens in the Brumbies vs 6th team game as to whom they play in the semis.

      theunis.vorster.3 - 2012-07-06 12:05

      It's speculation @ sean: We may end up with a 2 way tie on the top of the log, even a 3 way tie, many thing can still happen in the game still to be played, we could find the Stormers on top of the log, Bulls on 4 th for the semis.... Then we end up with a stormers Bulls semi... But so much still to play for, for the Sharks, Stormers and Bulls... Trying to work out whats semis will be played is nothing more thenspeculation.... Don't you think... I speculated, so did LaBlue...

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 12:13

      You are right, it is impossible to predict. I think the Brumbies have made winning the Conference their goal. I also think they will lose their semi (maybe to the Hurricanes). If they do then the winner of that game will play first place. So much to play for still, though ending up sixth may be the best position outside the top 2!

      theunis.vorster.3 - 2012-07-06 12:24

      @ Sean... Haha... Its great to see and think about all the possibilities of the final 6 teams, and their order. The Crusaders's best finish will be forth of the 6 teams, the Stormers with the best chance of surpassing the chiefs, with the Bulls and Brumbies with outside chances... All we could say is: nobody wants to play the Crusaders of Chiefs at home, all the other home-semi hopefuls will be prefered to played against anytime during the knockout stages, with the Bulls at home, being the most undesirable team to play against (IMO), other then the Chief and Saders... Meaning... Hope for any tream, except the chief or Crusaders... Lol

      henk.jacobs.39 - 2012-07-06 14:29

      @ Theunis, "The Stormers may choke yet again..." not may, WILL choke again!!

  • morne.vandyk.58 - 2012-07-06 11:28

    As soon as a Ref is appointed who is not scared of blowing up Cheat McCaw things will get better for world rugby.

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 11:34

      Always blame the ref! hahahaah - accept the fact that King Richie is the best 7 in the world. Finish en klaar. He knows the rules, play to the rules, bend the rules (not break), amend the rules etc. He does not run through people like alberts! You need to understand the game to give sensible comments. You probably heard your friend complaining about that McCaw guy!

      Stormkaap - 2012-07-06 12:24

      NO Cape he doenst play to the rules, he plays to the ref.. Hands in the ruck is not allowed in the rules. Plying from offside positions is not in the rules, taking up space ahead of the ruck is also not allowed in the rules.. or do u have a different set of rules. In my day we would have sent him to hospital for such infractions

      jm.hayes.96 - 2012-07-06 13:08

      he is NOT, the best flank in the world, Toe to Toe Brussow mops he field with Richies head, but il give credit where its due, he is an astonishing player, no doubt will go down as one of the best NZ players of all time. But the Chiefs got screwed by the ref, and we all know it. It should have been a draw or a Chiefs win.

      henk.jacobs.39 - 2012-07-06 14:33

      My goodness, today Cape is uniting Bulls and Stormers fans. Although we can't agree on many things we all agree that disagreeing with Cape.Maori on McCaw! LOVE IT!!!

  • sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 11:30

    I understand that Dan Carter missed the conversion. That means the try only counted for five points. With the Crusaders winning by seven points it wouldn't have affected the result. Having said all this how on earth is it possible that Bryce awarded the try! I am not alone in my thinking because all the commentators said the same! Either Bryce has no idea of the rules to the game he officiates, or he was paying back the Crusaders for the obstruction he missed last week. Whichever the case he should now be banned from any more participation in Super Rugby! When I saw that he was not running (or is that ruining) any game this weekend I was happy. BUT then he pops up as a TMO and still stuffs up! Unbelievable. But then again he'll probably be NZ ref of the year again this year...

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 11:39

      Oh and well done to the Crusaders! Sonny stuffed up in the last play, Chiefs could have had a conversion kick for the draw but it was not to be. His try earlier on gives him all the permission to make these mistakes - he beat six Crusaders tacklers from five metres out, brilliant!

      terry.burne - 2012-07-06 12:16

      Sean - the ref was Steve Walsh and not Bryce Lawrence. I can understand your confusion, because they were both born in NZ (although even NZ chucked out Walsh) and are both useless - but in this case the perpetrator was Walsh.

      Ross - 2012-07-06 12:29

      Terry, please read Sean's comment again. On the upside at least Bryce has done the Stormers a huge favour.

      japjapjap.wat - 2012-07-06 12:48

      ai @terri, wat verstaan julle ouens ni?? walsh was di ref, maar lawrence was di tmo, WAT DI BESLUIT MOES MAAK, ni walsh ni. dus sean is reg??

      Taurus.Blue1 - 2012-07-06 12:57

Hulle het duidelik nie die wedstryd gesien nie, 'n klokkie hoor lui en nou maak hulle afleidings. @terry, the TMO was BL who made a horrible call that cost the Chiefs 7 points

      Skinfaxi - 2012-07-07 00:00

      Sean if Bryce had allowed the Chiefs to win then the Crusaders would no longer be in the top 6. That is why SBW did not pass despite a 2 man overlap. The whole game was rigged to keep as many NZ teams in the playoffs as possible. Bryce has been making a series of diabolical decisions in order to keep the Hurricanes in the hunt. Watching NZ rugby is like watching WWF.

  • theunis.vorster.3 - 2012-07-06 11:30

      probably only for one day though. Can't see us beating them next week so they'll end up in fourth, unless the Stormers mess up tomorrow.

      paul.sdoow - 2012-07-06 12:20

      o Sean ye o little faith. i gonna bet on lions to win next week. the gonna have so many injuries after todays crunch match . and the lions are not as bad as the score board has told each week. same as the cheetahs . one or two balls bounce wrong and one or two lucky gaps that's all it will take.

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-06 18:02

      @paul I figured that maybe the Lions play nice next week. After all they may be looking for a job up the road when SARU make up their mind ;-). I'll always support them against anybody tho...

    @Taurus - time to crawl away in embarrassment - I guess there's a reason you don't use your real name!!! But you are actually correct about the ref (Steve Walsh) being useless. I watched the last 5 minutes with the Chiefs pressing on the Crusaders, and the Crusaders must have infringed more than 50 times - but Walsh just ignored it, eventually awarding a penalty - but there were so many infringements that he should have yellow carded several players (crusaders) for deliberate infingement in the red zone - or even awarded a penalty try. Steve Walsh is totally useless as a ref.

      And Mr Bryce Lawrence? Your opinion please.

      Cape, PLEASE don't use the word "ref" and Bryce Law(less)rence in the same line!

      Terry, it tells that you only whatched the last 5 min... Telling someone who whatched the whole game, commenting on the TMO's performance, how wrong they are for getting the refs mixed up, then you trying to correct them.... Who needs to crawl away in embarressment?

      theunis.vorster.3 - 2012-07-06 12:41

      Terry, you still there. Or did you crawl away?

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 12:55

      @Deon - I did not.

      Taurus.Blue1 - 2012-07-06 13:00

      @terry, the only one that should crawl away are YOU. Read, comprehend and come back and apologies.

      Taurus.Blue1 - 2012-07-06 13:03

      @theunis, thanks, but way too much information for Terry to comprehend.

      Any game in which Bryce Lawrence officiates in should come with the following advisory "The following game contains scenes which may offend serious rugby fans. The game may become a farce and a waste of time to watch." At least Bryce Lawrence does not have "Touch, pause, engage" tattooed on his arm so he can remember the order (like Steve Walsh does)

    Brilliant game.............down to the wire. The "4 try people" might think it was boring.........only 3 tries to 2. Crusader forwards were impressive. Very strong around the rucks and good ball retention. Can't agree with the Andy Ellis try though......Definitely a second bite at the cherry there when Whitelock shoved him forward. A draw probably would've been a fair result but nevertheless a great game of rugger.

    Guys, it is not Bryce. Bryce only does what he is told by NZRU. They want an all NZ final. Try of Ellis is a joke.

      margo.george.18 - 2012-07-06 13:47

      An all NZ final will be great, go Bryce!

      ej.smith.589 - 2012-07-06 14:13

      What are you on about Jonathan?. Bryce handed the Hurricanes a dubious try that cost the Crusaders the game last week!

      Skinfaxi - 2012-07-07 00:12

      @ej EXACTLY!!! If the Crusaders had gone out of the competition he would have been responsible - so this is how he makes amends. Two wrongs make a right?
