A WRAP of the weekend's matches in Round 14 of Super Rugby Pacific:

FRIDAY, 20 MAY

Crusaders 61-3 Fijian Drua - AS IT HAPPENED

The Crusaders ran in nine tries to thump the Fijian Drua in Christchurch.

Despite resting seven frontline players - Richie Mo'unga, Will Jordan, David Havili, Codie Taylor, Pablo Matera, Cullen Grace and George Bower – the Crusaders had no trouble outclassing the Drua.

All Blacks winger Sevu Reece score two of the nine tries.

Reds 34-22 Moana Pasifika - AS IT HAPPENED

The Reds got the result they wanted over Moana Pasifika but they were made to work very hard for it.

The men from Queensland came into the match with high hopes of snapping a four-game losing streak in Super Rugby against one of the weaker sides in the competition statistically.

The Pasifika had lost eight in a row before this game but their performances have been improving every week and that was again the case this time around even though their run without a win was extended to nine.

SATURDAY, 21 MAY

Chiefs 54-21 Force - AS IT HAPPENED

Hurricanes 45-22 Rebels - AS IT HAPPENED

The Rebels' losing streak in Super Rugby extended to nine consecutive games after they were comprehensively beaten by 45-22 at Sky Stadium on Saturday.

The Canes have now won their last four games in the competition in a row as they build confidence and momentum going into the playoffs.

Brumbies 19-21 Blues - AS IT HAPPENED

The clash of titans lived up to its billing as the Blues overcame the Brumbies 19-21 in a tense Super Rugby clash at GIO Stadium on Saturday.

The Brumbies were looking to avoid back-to-back defeats in Super Rugby for the first time since 2018.

The Blues, on the other hand, had won 18 of their last 19 games in the Competition and extended their unbeaten run to 12 games.

After the Brumbies lost possession at halfway, Jordie Barrett kicked a drop goal to earn a dramatic win for the New Zealanders.

SUNDAY, 22 MAY

Highlanders 20-32 Waratahs - AS IT HAPPENED
