blackcrow Posted March 4, 2011 Share Posted March 4, 2011 Waratahs -2.5 @ 3.00 centrebet The Crusaders lost their opening game to the Blues where they dominated early but allowed them back into the game. Without McCaw, they seem to lack that go-forward that they need, and especially against a very good defence here, they may struggle to get some sort of roll on, as the Waratahs are trained to stop these runners. While the Crusaders have two tall, strong centre in Williams and Fruean, but while Carter and Horne are smaller, they do know how to tackle well. Loss of Barnes at fly half does not help them, but they do have Beale in very good form to organise the attack. Like the Waratahs defence to stifle whatever the Crusaders throw at them, while the attacking play they showed in their last two weeks, as well as how the blues managed to punch the Crusaders line, without McCaw, gives the Blues plenty of hope that they can repeat it here. Like the Waratahs to break their 7 year old duck of not beating the Crusaders and win this game Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
