    0-3 Lions

    Penalty – Whitelock is penalised for playing the ball on the ground. Jonck slots the penalty for the first points of the game.

  • 3-3 Saders :wink:
    10min

    The Lions backline is offside right in front of their poles. Gard slots the penalty and the scores are level.

    I really was expecting MORE scoring than this. I suppose the final 20 will be the decider.

  • It seems the Crusaders have decided to start playing rugby.

    The Crusaders play the ball wide to the right to Sean Maitland who dives over in the corner. The TMO agrees.

    Conversion missed.

    11-6 Saders

    14 – 6 Crusaders.
    47min

    How much can be read into the fact that the Saders are kicking at goal rather than going for a try?

  • You have to play superbly for 80 minutes to avoid getting stuffed by these guys. They are famously slow starters. Remember the Bulls game?
