    The Crusaders have returned to winning ways in Super Rugby Aotearoa, but have needed an golden point extra time drop goal to do so

    The Crusaders have returned to winning ways in Super Rugby Aotearoa, but have needed an golden point extra time drop goal to do so


    The defending champions have beaten the Hurricanes 30-27 in Wellington, with David Havili snapping the winning drop goal.

    It comes nine days since they were stunned by the Highlanders on Good Friday in Christchurch.

    Lock Sam Whitelock says it was an improved showing...



    The defeat means the Hurricanes are now likely out of contention for the final, while the Crusaders move to 22 points - eight clear.
