The Crusaders continued their winning streak by beating the Rebels 41-19 at Melbourne on Saturday. Players featuring for the winners included Manasa Mataele, Seta Tamanivalu, David Havili, Mitchell Drummond and Jed Brown.
The Rebels fought well in the opening 15 minutes and had the best possible start to the second half when they scored from the kick-off. However, a deft Havili showing pace, power and guile left them hapless. His play proved he is the third highest in Super Rugby for defenders beaten this season. Mitchell Drummond and Jordan Tafua assisted their side in making the score 41-19 which secured their win.
