The Canterbury Crusaders continued their dominance of southern hemisphere provincial rugby by securing their seventh Super title with a come from behind 20-12 win over the New South Wales Waratahs in Christchurch.
The Crusaders were down 3-12 late in the first half, but scored 17 unanswered points, largely thanks to the boot of All Blacks fly-half Dan Carter, who kicked four penalties and a drop goal for a personal tally of 15 points.
The Waratahs put in a brave performance but faltered on the big stage, allowing the experienced Crusaders to dominate in front of their home crowd, sending coach Robbie Deans, winger Caleb Ralph, and former captain Reuben Thorne out on a winning note.
This is just a quick montage from the game. In terms of short clips worth showing again, not too many to speak of. Lachlan Turner did score two great tries though so we may stick them up soon.
