Crusaders captain Kieran Read said that he was “really proud” of his team in their 14-40 Super Rugby victory over the Brumbies in Canberra on Sunday.

The Crusaders scored six tries to two on their way to a convincing seventh straight victory this season.

The Christchurch side are notorious for making slow starts to the Super Rugby season but have made one of their best starts in almost a decade this year.

The Crusaders are now one point behind the Chiefs after 8 rounds although they have a bye next week so could slip behind in Round 10.

The Crusaders dominated all facets of the game against the Brumbies who have now slipped to their third defeat and dropped to second place in the Australian Conference.

“Not too many things went wrong for us today,” Crusaders captain Kieran Read said.

“I’m so proud of the boys. They really stood up tonight.”

Read said he was pleased with the Crusaders’ defensive efforts, which led to a host of turnover ball.

“We were able to put a lot of pressure on them and get some rewards on them in terms of territory and then obviously capitalise.”
