The Crusaders travel to Brisbane to play the Reds.

The Crusaders have already claimed first position and cannot be overtaken.

Will the Reds catch the Crusaders off guard?

Or will the Crusaders simply just be a class above the Reds?

Kick-off in Brisbane at 11:40 SA time.

  • phew… that was a nailbiting game. Just about as bad as Force vs Chiefs last week. Even though there wasn’t much to play for.

    Reds – Crusaders: 21-27
    Awesome and surprising game by the Reds who came close to a victory. Crusaders only came through when their full team came back on with Carter, Williams and Ellis. If the Reds play like this, even without Latham, the Waratahs are likely to lose there next week. If WAR lose to the Stormers tonight (staying stuck on 37 or 38), their hopes look slim of making the finals given the Reds passion to beat their historic rivals.

    Good luck to Sharks and Stormers… The ball in the SAF teams now…
