Very disappointing end to the Crusaders season, last two games were really poor. Line speed, scrum, they just seem knackered or something. It's the right result, unfortunately, this season the Crusaders were the 4th best team in NZ. The Lions played with the same speed and positive intent as the Chiefs. ID had a horrible game barr a couple of really nice touches!
I am hoping Scott Robertson can restore some of the core values in defense that has been missing the past two seasons.
It was some performance by the Chiefs! One, if not THE best, I've seen them play. They look like title contenders, as do the Hurricanes. Really positive Rugby this season (Finally!). Almost a perfect performance by them. What impressed me the most was the variety of the attacks and the execution.
Personally, I'd still like to see the Hurricanes get a title this year, it's going to entirely depend I think, if the travel depletes the Chiefs.
