Chiefs beat Crusaders 28-19 in Super Rugby

Chiefs beat Crusaders 28-19 in Super Rugby

Center Bundee Aki caused a try to be disallowed, then immediately scored the match-winner as the Hamilton-based Chiefs beat the Crusaders 28-19 in Super Rugby on Friday, extending their New Zealand conference lead to nine points.
Aki's midfield partner Charlie Ngatai appeared to have scored the decisive try in the 68th minute when he crashed over after the Chiefs secured a critical tighthead from an attacking scrum.
But referee Steve Walsh ruled contentiously that Aki had changed his line to impdede a Crusaders defender. Play restarted with a scrum to the Chiefs from a penalty advantage and Aki immediately atoned, touching down for the match-winner.
