Watch: Toulon bound All Black winger torches Blues for solo score

The Crusaders continued their march towards what would be a 7th consecutive Super Rugby title with a commanding 52 – 15 victory over the Blues.

The fixture was a blowout from the off, as the Crusaders scored a try within the opening two minutes.

Crossing the line was All Blacks XV representative Braydon Ennor who gratefully received a precise long-range pass from flyhalf Richie Mo’unga.

The defending champions would go on to score four tries in the first half to lead 32 – 3, with the only Blues points coming via a Beauden Barrett penalty.

In addition to Ennor, Will Jordan, Leicester Fainga’anuku, and Codie Taylor would all cross the whitewash.

Starting the second half with a bang, Fainga’anuku would score one of the individual tries of the season as he ripped through the Blues defence.

Taking the ball straight from a line-out, the giant winger broke the Blues defensive line with ease before bamboozling the chasing Blues defenders.

The try itself was one of those simply sublime individual moments but did highlight the gulf in quality between the two sides.

Consistent as ever, the Crusaders were on the mark with everything they did, whilst the Blues had one of their all too familiar down weeks.

Next up for the Crusaders will be the Chiefs or the Brumbies, who will meet tomorrow for semi-final two.
