Crusaders call McLean Park home

The Crusaders rode the boot of Dan Carter
as they made Napier their newest home-
away-from-home, with a 25-19 win over the
Chiefs on Saturday night.
The first five-eighth contributed 20
points as the Crusaders edged to within two
points of the Blues, to be fourth place over-
all -- on the same points as the third-placed

Chiefs to notch their ninth win of the
They managed just one try, though, to
lock Luke Romano, and Carter did the rest
with five penalties, one dropped goal from
three attempts, and one conversion.
The Chiefs managed a late try to flanker
Liam Messam to secure a bonus point after
the sides went to the halftime break at 6-6.
Carter later dismissed suggestions his
drop-goal attempts against the Chiefs were
part of his World Cup preparations, and
said there had been no instructions
from All Blacks coach Graham
Henry to hone his drop-goal skills.
No, it is not the reason for going
for it against the Chiefs. I just
thought it was important in those
situations,'' Carter maintained.
It was just one of those moments
in a game when I thought the drop
goal would put things in our favour
so I had a few goes.''
It was a match that failed to reach
any great heights, with several
million dollars worth of talent on the
sideline including Israel Dagg,
Sonny Bill Williams, Sean Maitland
and Andy Ellis.
Still, with Zac Guildford on the
wing for the Crusaders and forwards Hika
Elliot and Sona Taumalolo turning out for
the Chiefs, there was plenty for Hawke's
Bay rugby fans to be interested in.
