Crusaders 20-12 Hurricanes, AMI Stadium
Matt Todd scored the only try in the game as Crusaders maintained their winning streak of 11 games with a 20-12 victory over Hurricanes in their Super Rugby clash at AMI Stadium on Saturday.
The first half saw Richie Mo'unga and fullback Jordie Barrett scoring three penalties each as the scores were levelled 9-9 at half time.
Todd provided some breathing space for Crusaders when he strolled past the post in the 50th minute but Mo'unga missed out on the conversion. The fly-half, however, made amends with two more penalties to take the score to 20 points while Jordie had a solitary three pointer to reduce the losing margin to eight points.
Crusaders now have 50 points from 11 games as they top New Zealand Conference while Hurricanes are positioned third.
