Rugby Union – Cane try gives Chiefs winning start

Rugby Union - Cane try gives Chiefs winning start– A Sam Cane try two minutes from time ensured a 27-21 win to the Waikato Chiefs over the Canterbury Crusaders in a high-tempo New Zealand derby in Christchurch. The lead changed six times in the match, with the Crusaders leading 21-15 before the Chiefs finished strongest and notched up 12 points in the final 15 minutes. The visitors had trailed 8-13 at half-time but had always looked dangerous with Aaron Cruden orchestrating a rapid running game which repeatedly stretched the Crusaders defence.
