Sevu Reece pass sums up all that is great about the Crusaders right now

Reigning Super Rugby champions the Crusaders ran out comfortable 43-17 winners against the Highlanders on Friday and maintained their lead at the top of the table.

Despite the scores being close at half time, Scott Robertson’s team upped the tempo after the break and ran away with the game.

The Crusaders scored some great tries in the process but one try, in particular, showed why they are as dominant as they are currently, and that was Mitchell Drumond’s finish that was made to look so simple.

Have a look at the try here:

Sevu Reece, who was superb all game, showed quick thinking and great pace to make the break from the ruck, but it was his perfectly weighted offload to Drummond that was spectacular. The scrum-half was not even in shot when the winger played the pass, as it initially looked like it was going to noone.

This try required communication and teamwork, and epitomises what a well-oiled machine the Crusaders are. There may be flashier players and teams, but this was ruthlessly efficient and expertly executed and something that very few teams could replicate.
