The Crusaders are going to be lucky to even field a full team of forwards this week! Tim Perry has gone down in training. It's going to be pretty tough going.
This is the part of the season that I really don't like. Teams with rosters depleted for the All Blacks are hit hard if there are injuries in those positions.
I'd rather the Crusaders and Hurricanes had all their best players so we got a real spectacle this weekend.
Say it with me..... "It's for the greater good"... yeah nah I agree. It's a real shame. Honestly I can't see us beating the canes tomorrow. It would have been a massive game with a full strength squad - with how many front rowers are missing, she's going to be tough times.
