Rugby: Highlanders lose pre-season game 40-19

The Highlanders have been beaten 40-19 by the Crusaders in a Super 15 pre-season game in Greymouth today.

The southern franchise paid the penalty on the scoreboard for a poor first half but finished strongly so can take some positives out of the game.

Crusaders 47 (R Crotty 3, T Bleyendaal, W Heinz, G Whitelock, J Wheeler tries; Bleyendaal 5 cons, A Ellis con), Highlanders 19 (B Murray, N Manu, B Popoali'i tries; C Noakes 2 cons).
