Crusaders awarded 2 penalty tries, beat Western Force 30-7 in Super Rugby

  • Print

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand - The Crusaders were awarded two late penalty tries as they sealed a 30-7 win over the Western Force in Super Rugby on Friday to give further strength to their claim to a playoffs place.

Referee Mike Fraser awarded the first penalty try in the 72nd minute when he ruled the Force had deliberately collapsed the Crusaders' driving maul and the second at a screwed scrum in the third minute of injury time.

Fraser also sent Force lock Sam Wykes to the sin bin for a professional foul in the 71st minute and gave the Crusaders an overwhelming advantage in the penalty count.

Winger Johnny McNicholl scored one try and had another disallowed as the Crusaders took a 16-0 lead to halftime. But they were held scoreless in the second half until the first of their penalty tries.
