The Crusaders coach doesn't think the defending Super 14 champions were flat when they lost a semi-final for the first time - going down 27-12 to the Bulls in Pretoria.

Robbie Deans says that's not a word he'd use to describe the win, which sets up the first final in South Africa - the Sharks will host the Bulls in Durban next Sunday after they beat the Blues 34-18.

He says the side was more suppressed than flat with them unable to get their game going

Robbie Deans says he's still enjoying coaching the Crusaders and over the next few weeks will see if there's any interest in keeping him there.
