5:49 pm on 6 May 2012

The Crusaders have beaten the Queensland Reds 15-11 in their Super Rugby clash in Christchurch.

The defending champion Reds scored the only try after 2 minutes to hooker James Hansen, but 2 penalties from Tom Taylor put the homeside in front at half time.

The lead changed hands a couple of times during the second half as the sides traded penalties and the Crusaders held on despite having prop Wyatt Crockett sin-binned for a dangerous tackle.

Tom Taylor kicked 5 penalties for the Crusaders, who have now won 4 straight and move up to 5th on the table.
