Canterbury Crusaders win clash of heavyweights

Via New Zealand Herald:

The Crusaders scored two first-half tries and held off a 20-minute onslaught courageously from the Waratahs to win the battle of the Super 14 rugby heavyweights 17-11 in Christchurch tonight.

The homeside defended their line furiously in the last 20 minutes as the Waratahs turned the pressure on their opponents by getting their big men charging for the winner. ... The Crusaders defence, however, was magnificent holding off the barrage.


The victory meant the Crusaders are back in the lead with 35 points and the Waratahs second with 33 after earning a bonus point.
