Crusaders' power rules again as a fifth consecutive Super Rugby title, and the second Super Rugby Aotearoa version, was secured in a stirring, frenetic, final 24-13 win over the Chiefs in Christchurch on Saturday.
Crusaders coach Scott Robertson had no qualms in accepting Chiefs coach Clayton McMillan's claim that the defending Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa champions were under more pressure than the Chiefs in Saturday's final in Christchurch.
Daunting as the Crusaders winning ability in four previous finals was to overcome, the Chiefs were thinking about creating a streak of their own ahead of Saturday's Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa final in Christchurch.
Gallagher Chiefs Head Coach Clayton McMillan has named his team to face the Crusaders in the Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa Final on Saturday 8 May. The highly anticipated final will kick off at 7.05pm at Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch.
