Crusaders first-five Tom Taylor has played down his record breaking performance against the previously unbeaten Stormers and said he is not sure what all the excitement was about.
Taylor scored all of the Crusaders points in their 31-24 victory over the Stormers equalling a Super Rugby record set by four other players but none of them Crusaders.
Taylor kicked eight penalties and converted his own try which means he set a new record for the Crusaders by scoring the most points in a match, overtaking the 29 scored by Ben Blair against the Bulls in 2001.
Even though Taylor has written his name into the Super rugby history books he still isn't sure that this was most points he had scored in a match.
"I wouldn't have a clue how much I have scored in a match before, I am not really one who looks at stats."
"This will probably be up here," he told Fairfax.
"Dad (former All Blacks midfielder Warwick) has always been a big help (with kicking) but a lot of it has been self-taught.
"With the amount of time I have put in, I sort of know what is going on - ever since I was a little kid when I used to go and have a few kicks with Dad."
While Taylor said that his pulse quickened whenever he looked at the scoreboard before he took a penalty kick he said that there was little danger of getting stage fright.
"The pressure is there but it doesn't really affect me, so that is the main thing. "
"All year I have just nailed my technique, I have just been confident and nothing is bothering me. "
"Even if I am having an off day, (goal kicks) seem to be going over and that always helps."
The 23-year-old has in the past had kicking sessions with All Blacks kicking coach Mick Byrne but now he says he is confident enough to adjust his own style.
"It has changed a lot for me over the years but it works for me now and I think that is the key. "
"I have found a technique that I like and I have stuck with it and know the little adjustments I need to make."
