Match Commentary

81'17-25 End of second half
80'Heartbreak for a second season in a row for the Lions. The hosts were unable to recover from a slow start and losing Smith to a red card, despite a spirited finish at Ellis Park.
80'Crusaders secure the ball and as they drive into the Lions half they also pick up a penalty. Mo'unga taps, kicks the ball out and the Crusaders have won their eighth Super Rugby title!
