Crusaders outplay Bulls

19-54 is not the score you exactly would expect to get in an away game against the defending champions. The Crusaders have.

An impressive display by the Crusaders has shown some points:
  1. They are the main contenders for the title.
  2. Dominance in the forward pack is key for playing under the new ELVs.
  3. Canterbury produces high quality players, like Poki, at an unbelievable rate.
  4. Nucifora was right about the ELVs.

I can not agree with Fourie du Preez, when he suggests that the cause of their defeat was the own errors. They were outplayed.

The Bulls don't have the stallions to replace what they have lost through injury and exile. Besides, Fourie Dupreez is as overated overachiever.....he's not an exclusive package. I would say he is more like a Butch James and that isn't a bad thing to be. But Butch James , RWC Championship or no, is not a Dan Carter, Steve Brett or Nick Evans, nevermind Nacewa; he can never be an All Black even were he good enough to be selected. I would put Falie O of the Cheetahs right up there with DuPreez, even if he has a bad temper.

I really like du Preez but, as I said before, I don't expect much of the south africans until 2011.

I will have to agree to disagree. Don't expect too much from the South Africans until 2019 and by then the country will be destroyed.
The South Africans will be enhancing their rugby from namibia or Zimbabwe...maybe not Zim but certainly Namibia.
