Crusaders have suffered a major injury scare ahead of their Super Rugby final clash against Jaguares with All Blacks duo Scott Barrett and Ryan Crotty in doubt for the high-profile encounter.

Scott Barrett was replaced at the start of the second half in the semi-final against Hurricanes with a finger injury while Crotty played 47 minutes in the game before he was forced to leave the field with a thumb injury.

“They’re important players for us,” Robertson following the win over Hurricanes.

“One hundred-odd games for (Crotty) and Scooter (Barrett) is one of the best locks in the world. We’ll see.”

The game at Orangetheory Stadium also saw both Dane Coles and Crusaders fly-half Richie Mo'unga suffer head knocks as Robertson felt the officials should have reviewed the Hurricanes hooker's action.

“One hundred per cent. But I think it’s done now. The TMO (Ben Skeen) has got a chance to go back and have a look at it. He (Mo’unga) was down for a while, wasn’t he? It hurt him.”

Crusaders have already won the titles in the 2017 and 2018 seasons and a win next weekend will see them complete a hat-trick of Super Rugby title wins.
