Crusaders Turn On The Magic With Incredible Barbarians Style Wonder-Try
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
The Crusaders were crowned Super Rugby Aotearoa champions this morning with a round to spare thanks to a 32-22 win over the Highlanders in Christchurch.
It’s their fourth title in as many years – and 11th overall, as Scott Robertson’s side continue their complete and utter dominance of club rugby in the southern hemisphere.
But it was a far from perfect performance from the Crusaders who only took the lead for the first time in the 65th minute following a spirited display from the Highlanders.
Their first try of the game though will probably go down as the try of the tournament, and perhaps the year, with the men in red turning on the magic for a Barbarians style wonder try.
Nine Crusaders players get their hands on the ball as they dance from their own 10-metre line, through the Highlanders defence and under the posts with Richie Mo’unga touching down.
Check it out for yourself below in all its wonderful glory.
A special try from a special team. Pure and utter rugby porn at its very best.
You will not see a better try all year.
