Reds vs Crusaders highlights!!!!

On Sunday night there was a MOUTH-WATERING super 15 clash between the Queensland reds and the Canterbury crusaders!!!!! This match lived up to expectation as there was a 50 000 crowd sell out. And also for the kiwi team super All Black Dan Carter and also All Blacks captain Richie McCaw were back. Both of the teams ran onto the field and for both there was a MASSIVE ROAR!!!! So how would this game turn out??????

RRRRRR!!!! The whistle blew and the Crusaders had an awesome penalty kick to open the score card. 3-0 to the kiwi team. Immediately it was a force to be reckoned with when the reds hit back with a try to make the score 7-3. Although I am still debating that there was a forward pass or not!!! The ref didn’t see it!!! There were opportunity after opportunity to score but the defence was rock solid. Going into the sheds the score was 7-3 to the Queensland reds.

RRRRR!!! Again the whistle blew to signify the second half kick-off of the game!!! With the mighty crusaders kicking it off. the second-half was again hard going for the first seven minutes. Then the power of the Crusaders struck when Robbie Fruin set-up a try for 32 year old Joe Wheeler crossing over to make the score 10-7!!!! The defence from both teams held up rock hard until.... The reds scored the equalizer making the score 14-10 to the Queensland Reds. A penalty was blown for the Crusaders right in front of the uprights, an easy three points for Daniel Carter, and they were easily taken the score now was 14-13!!! It would take another 15 minutes before the score was once again cracked!!! Again Lazy defence from the reds gave Dan Carter a gifted three points!!! The score now 16-14. “ OH NO!!! “ These must of been the words of the Crusaders coach when there was a penalty given to the reds with one minute to go!!! Quade Cooper took his chance and....The goal was hit!!! The crusaders tried the short kick-off but it wasn’t enough!!! The final score 17-16 to the Queensland Reds!!
