Super Rugby Pacific: Crusaders take bonus-point win over Moana Pasifika

The Crusaders have done their part and will now be closely watching the game in Lautoka on Saturday to learn their playoff fate.

The Super Rugby defending champions dispatched Moana Pasifika 43-10 in Christchurch on Friday night, to keep their very slim hopes of a top eight spot alive.

Taking maximum points from the encounter, the Crusaders now need the Rebels to defeat the Drua in Fiji to sneak into the quarters.

That match kicks off at 2pm on Saturday.
