Crusaders beat Reds 58-17 in Super Rugby

Winger Nemani Nadolo scored two of eight tries as the Christchurch-based Crusaders revived their Super Rugby playoffs chances with a 58-17 win over the Queensland Reds on Friday.

The Crusaders took a slender 15-10 lead to halftime but ran in six second-half tries, including Nadolo's double, to take a bonus point and lift themselves inside the top-six playoffs zone at the start of the 13th round.

The match was a farewell to All Blacks captain Richie McCaw and star flyhalf Daniel Carter, who likely played their last Super Rugby matches for the Crusaders in Christchurch.
