Crusaders Coming for 10th Super Rugby Crown?

|, Super Rugby|Crusaders Coming for 10th Super Rugby Crown?

The defending champions Crusaders sit top of the Super 15 as they’ve won all their opening three games in convincing fashion.

They are looking for a hat-trick of consecutive titles as they want to emulate that great period between 98-00 where they won three titles in a row. They are the only team to ever complete a hat-trick in Super Rugby History. They are on the hunt for their 10th ever Super Rugby crown this year.

Scott Robertson’s men picked up a good-hard fought victory last weekend on the road against the Queensland Reds at Suncorp Stadium on a shoreline of 22-12 as they won their 18th consecutive game in a row and 8th win in succession away from home. This was without key players Sam Whitelock, Kieran Read and Ryan Crotty.

They achieved a two-point victory against the Blues in Round 1 and beat the Hurricanes convincingly in Christchurch Stadium in Round 2. They’ll be hard for any team to stop. They host the Chiefs this weekend who haven’t yet won a game in their opening three encounters in this year’s competition. The Crusaders will fancy themselves to go four from four this weekend.

Three rounds played, three games won, three in a row in sight. Their top of the table leading their pursuit to winning their 10th ever title, there’s still a very long way to go, but can they be stopped?
