Both teams, Crusader and the Hurricanes getting ready to give it their best in front of millions of fans. It was an important game for the Hurricanes skipper Conrad Smith because it was a home game for them and it was a must win to make their fans proud including me because I support the Hurricanes on that night. It was going to be a clash of the fall between these two Super 15 teams. Finally time has come as the two fierce looking teams ready to run out of the tunnel. Flags were been raised high in the air when the two teams came out.
Now it was time to get into a game of footy for what the crowd came to see. The crowd was excited because now it was game time. This is going to be a clash and a battle to death as the Crusaders take on head to head against the Wellington Hurricanes.
It was a fantastic game try after try between both teams as the supports were nail biting hoping to see the team they bet on won. As the game carried on I was getting angry because the Hurricanes always knocked on the ball and it was very frustrating.
One the second half I was too glad to see the Hurricanes carve up meaning they managed to put together and scored tries. It wasn’t enough tries for the Hurricanes to get back in the lead so they kept on battling. With 10 minutes left of the game the Hurricanes were behind the Crusaders 22 to 28.
It was game that came down to the wire. I felt stink because with 5 minutes left Crusaders were attacking and I for me I thought to myself Hurricanes were going to lose. Crusaders were hanging in there to keep the ball alive until the end of the game to take the victory, until five eighth Dan Carter went to pass the ball to fullback Israel Dagg, and out of nowhere the winger for Hurricanes Alapati Leiua intercepted that ball from the 40 meter mark and sprinted and scored under the post.
I was so relieved when Hurricanes scored that wonderful try.
