Super Rugby Championship - Quick Hit

Crusaders for Three Trophies running
Jaguares earned an early 3-nil advantage through a penalty struck by flyhalf, Joaquin Diaz Bonilla from 30 meters outside the right stick in the 16th minute before Crusaders 9, Bryn Hall, hoisted a high hanger from breakdown at midfield and, though covered by a defender 30 meters out from Jaguares goal, a four-step forward maul fell down and 8man, Kieran Read, scooped the pill to captain Sam Whitelock on the weak side who galloped off on a streak for goal; right before being taken out by the desperate visitor cover, shifted the pill inside to support, number 2 Codie Taylor, who, though tackled short of the paint, had the impetus to carry across and touch down for the extras by flyhalf, Richie Mo’unga, and Crusaders went ahead, 7-3 at minute 27. Jaguares fast down and into Crusaders business district with the goaline reachable in the 37th, but a try-saver by homeside’s fullback, David Havili, in combination with a Bryn Hall strip prevented flyer Matias Moroni’s grounding. A Mo’unga penalty struck at time in the half made the tallies 10 and 3 at referee Jaco Peyper’s midpoint signal.
Mo’unga potted three more penalties in the second stanza against naught for Jaguares and the record, 19-3, but there were several times that fortune simply turned its fickle face from Jaguares and trys went begging.
