Late stum­ble dents Cru­saders’ hopes

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

The un­de­feated Can­ter­bury Cru­saders hopes of a flaw­less Su­per Rugby sea­son were shat­tered on Satur­day with a 22-31 loss to Welling­ton Hur­ri­canes. The re­sult gives South Africa's Golden Li­ons the chance to over­take the Cru­saders at the top of the ta­ble if it beats the Coastal Sharks in Dur­ban. It also means the Hur­ri­canes will play the ACT Brumbies next week, rather than fac­ing a trip to South Africa against the Western Storm­ers.

Other re­sults: Western Force 40 NSW Waratahs 11; Sun­wolves 48 Auckland Blues 21; Southern Kings 20 Cen­tral Chee­tahs 21.
