What we can learn from the Crusaders along with Israel Dagg's Try

There were sublime moments of great skill yesterday in the Crusaders - Sharks match up, as a great game unfolded. Give the Sharks their due there contribution was significant and a mini revival in the second half helped to keep the game truly competitive right up to the final whistle.

I took three things from the game and in all cases they are not often seen at Twickenham:

  1. It is possible to execute a strike move from a scrummage.
  2. Imaginative well executed back row moves create attacking opportunities.
  3. Power can be combined with subtlety and guile although in this respect it does help to have Sonny Bill Williams in your side.
