  • FULL TIME - The final whistle sounds and the Crusaders are victorious 24-13 over the Hurricanes. It has been a masterclass in wet weather rugby from the Crusaders while the Hurricanes have had an off night.
    '
  • Frustration for the Hurricanes as B.Barrett throws a forward pass to Milner-Skudder just as some space starts to open up outwide.
    78''
  • Great sliding defence from the Crusaders as they shepherd Laumape towards the sideline before sliding him into touch on halfway.
    75''
  • B.Barrett wastes no time converting the try from close range to reduce the deficit to 11 points.
    73''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION HURRICANES (Beauden Barrett) 24-13 Crusaders
    73''
  • Prinsep breathes life into the Hurricanes as he bursts through a hole, running a hard short line. He pins his ears back and beats B.Barrett to score next to the posts.
    72''
  • Try
    TRY HURRICANES (Reed Prinsep) 24-11 Crusaders
    72''
  • Side to side stuff here from the Hurricanes as poor passing stiffles any chance of forward momentum.
    71''
  • It's "chance your arm time" now for the Hurricanes but so far tonight nothing they have done with ball in hand has clicked. 
    69''
  • Mo'unga is on target again as he bangs over his third conversion to give the Crusaders a sizeable 18 point lead with 14 minutes remaining.
    66''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION CRUSADERS (Richie Mo'unga) 24-6 Crusaders
    66''
  • It's all to easy for the number 8 as he carries off the back of the scrum and bumps through the tackle of Perenara to score for the Crusaders.
    65''
  • Try
    TRY CRUSADERS (Hayden Bedwell-Curtis) 22-6 Crusaders
    65''
  • The TMO denies the Crusaders a try, ruling Mitch Hunt kncoked the ball on in the lead up. Fortunately for the Crusaders they were playing under a penalty advantage and therefore the referee brings play back for the penalty. The Crusaders opt for a scrum.
    63''
  • Ihaia West puts his side under huge pressure as he slices his clearing kick into touch inside his own in-goal area. The Crusaders will have a 5m scrum.
    61''
  • A try goes begging for the Crusaders as Goodhue beats a couple of tackles before offloading to Bridge who drops the ball cold with the tryline in reach.
    60''
  • Great game management from Mo'unga as he drives the ball along the ground and into touch 5m from the Hurricanes goal line. Riccatelli will throw to a defensive line-out.
    58''
  • Time off is blown with Braydon Ennor down with what looks to be a serious leg injury. He leaves the field and is replaced by Mitch Hunt.
    56''
  • Mo'unga extends the Crusaders lead to 11 points as he slots his second conversion from 15m to the left of the posts.
    52''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION CRUSADERS (Richie Mo'unga) 17-6 Crusaders
    52''
  • The Crusaders forwards do it again as Alaalatoa barges his way over from one metre out after numerous attempts from the Crusaders pack.
    51''
  • Try
    TRY CRUSADERS (Michael Alaalatoa) 15-6 Crusaders
    51''
  • A great touch finder from Mo'unga provides the Crusaders with an attacking 5m line-out. Can the home capitalise with a try?
    50''
  • Playing under a penalty advantage, Mo'unga snaps a long range drop-goal attempt which is a shocker. Play comes back for the penalty 40m from the Hurricanes goal line.
    50''
  • Mo'unga registers first points of the second half as he knocks over his first penalty from 15m out in front.
    48''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOAL CRUSADERS (Richie Mo'unga) 10-6 Crusaders
    48''
  • J.Savea comes up with a try saving tackle on Havili as he rolls him onto his back not allowing the Crusaders fullback to ground the ball before going into touch. Play will come back for the penalty.
    47''
  • The Crusaders have a penalty advantage and are just a couple of metres short of the tryline.
    46''
  • Injury concern for the Crusdaers with Mo'unga seeking treatment from the trainor for what looks to be a right calf issue. He will stay on the field for the meantime.
    45''
  • Superb work at the breakdown from Todd as he wins a penalty for his side with Riccatelli not releasing the ball on the ground.
    44''
  • The first penalty of the second half goes the way of the Hurricanes as Alaalatoa is penalised for offside at the breakdown.
    42''
  • A poor option from Tamanivalu as he kicks inside the Hurricanes 22 and the ball rolls dead resulting in a 22m drop-out.
    41''
  • The players have returned to the field and Richie Mo'unga restarts play for the second half.
    40''
  • HALF TIME - The first half comes to a close with the Crusaders leading the Hurricanes 7-6. The weather is making it tough for both sides to play their natural attacking styles but nonetheless it has been a competitive and physical 40 minutes.
    '
  • Superb goal line defence fromthe Hurricanes as they hold the Crusaders up over the tryline which brings about the half time whistle.
    40'+2''
  • The Hurricanes need to be careful as they concede a second penalty in a row for collapsing the maul. The next one will result in a sin bin.
    40'''
  • The Hurricanes are under huge pressure to end the first half as they are penalised for collapsing the Crusaders rolling maul. The Crusaders opt to go to a 5m line-out.
    40'''
  • Laumape concedes a penalty as he is called for a dangerous tackle on Tamanivalu.
    40''
  • No mistake from B.Barrett as he knocks over the penalty to close the gap to one point.
    38''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOAL HURRICANES (Beauden Barrett) 7-6 Crusaders
    38''
  • The Crusaders concede a penalty right out infront of their own posts as they are caught offside after a strong run from J.Savea. B.Barrett will shoot for goal from 10m out in front.
    37''
  • Great work under the high ball from Perenara as he claims the ball and  turns his body side on to avoid being driven backwards by the Crusaders defence. B.Barrett then launches a high kick of his own which is once again put down by Havili, his third drop of the night.
    35''
  • A chance is lost for the Hurricanes as Lam is unable to claim the cross-kick from Laumape. The kick was perfect and Lam will be kicking himself that he didn't reel in the ball as there was plenty of open space in front of him.
    33''
  • Risky play from the Hurricanes as they look to run the ball out of their own 22. Laumape is caught behind the advantage line but manages to retain the ball allowing B.Barrett to eventually clear the ball to touch.
    32''
  • A tough break for the Crusaders as the TMO rules a high shot against Alaalatoa with the referee having missed it. Replays show initial contact was around the shoulder before the arm slips up to the head.
    29''
  • A wonder strike from J.Barrett as he drills the penalty from halfway to give the Hurricanes their first points of the night.
    27''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOAL HURRICANES (Jordie Barrett) 7-3 Crusaders
    27''
  • Mo'unga turns five points into seven as he bangs the conversion over from 10m to the left of the posts.
    25''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION CRUSADERS (Richie Mo'unga) 7-0 Crusaders
    25''
  • The deadlock is finally broken as S.Barrett burrows his way over to score  from close range after a patient build-up from the Crusaders forwards.
    24''
  • Try
    TRY CRUSADERS (Scott Barrett) 5-0 Crusaders
    24''
  • Ill discipline again from J.Barrett as he is penalised for a high tackle on Bridge.
    22''
  • Silly play from J.Barrett as he hits Havili late after the Crusaders fullback clears the ball to touch from inside his own in-goal area.
    20''
  • An injury blow for the Crusaders as Tim Bateman leaves the field with a hamstring injury.
    19''
  • A poor option from B.Barrett as he puts boot to ball inside the Crusdaers 22. Havili positions himself perfectly to clean up the ball allowing Mo'unga to clear the ball to touch from the next breakdown.
    18''
  • Havili makes his second handling error of the night as he drops another high kick from B.Barrett. This time the scrum will pack midfield on the Crusdaers 22m line and is a great attacking opportunity for the visitors.
    16''
  • An overthrown line-out ball by the Crusaders is hacked ahead by B.Barrett who tries to get a second kick on the ball but misses it as he slips in the wet conditions.
    14''
  • Superb set piece defence from the Hurricanes as firstly they stop the Crusaders attempt at a rolling maul before winning a penalty at the subsequent breakdown.
    12''
  • A win at scrumtime for the Crusaders as Jeff Toomaga-Allen is penalised for collapsing. The Crusaders turn down the chance at three points as Mo'unga kicks to the corner.
    11''
  • Shields spills the ball down the left as he is put under pressure by Tamanivalu. The Hurricanes found no rhythm during that passage of play and perhaps B.Barrett needs to look for a short kick in behind the defence to keep the Crusaders guessing.
    9''
  • The Hurricanes are intent on keeping the ball in hand as they look to build some phases.
    8''
  • Wyatt Crockett is penalised for taking a man out off the ball which allows B.Barrett to find touch on halfway where Ricky Riccitelli will throw to a line-out.
    7''
  • MISSED PENALTY CRUSADERS (Richie Mo'unga) - Mo'unga is off target first up as he hooks his penalty attempt across the face of the posts.
    5''
  • Jack Goodhue wins his side a penalty at the breakdown allowing the Crusaders to clear the ball from their own territory.
    4''
  • Laumape crashes the ball up in midfield before the Hurricanes forwards take control running one off the ruck.
    3''
  • David Havili comes up with an error as he spills the high kick from B.Barrett. The Hurricanes will have an attacking scrum 35m from the Crusaders goal line.
    2''
  • Early injury concern for the Hurricanes with Toby Smith down with what looks to be a shoulder issue. He is back to his feet nd it looks as if he will play on for now.
    1''
  • Referee Angus Gardner blows time on and Beauden Barrett gets play underway.
    1''
  • Wyatt Crockett gets a start in his199th game if Super Rugby and he will be partnered in the front row by Codie Taylor and Michael Alaalatoa. Bryn Hall and Richie Mo'unga will start at 9 and 10 and their combination will be crucial with poor weather forecast for the match.For the Hurricanes, Jordie Barrett moves to centre to replace the injured Matt Proctor while TJ Perenara returns to the starting side at halfback after coming off the bench last week.
