Blues Bruise Crusaders



What a finish! What a drop kick! What a star – Kemu Valetini take a bow!

In other Super Rugby Pacific games: The Chiefs hung on to edge the Highlanders 21-28 in Hamilton, the Blues bruised the Crusaders 6-26 at Eden Park and the Force flunked the Reds 31-40 in a major upset in Perth.

Back in Lautoka yesterday, the Fijian Drua shot out of the blocks for a handy halftime lead before the Tahs came charging back in the rain to level it 36 all before their drop kick attempt in sudden death extra time missed.

Then it was the Drua’s turn and incredibly off a terrible pass from his halfback which forced kemu Valetini to turn back and pull in the ball from above his head, the super sub flyhalf sold an audacious dummy, took one step and stabbed over an incredible drop kick to win it for the Fijian Drua 39-36 NSW Waratahs and bring the house down.

On Friday night, the Hurricanes hit 50 in ripping the Rebels apart in Palmerston New Zealand and the Brumbies hammered Moana Pasifika scoring 60 in Canberra.
