Crusaders not too excited just yet

12:24 pm on 14 June 2011

The Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder says there's no time to get too excited about the Super Rugby competition.

The Crusaders have hit the top of the New Zealand Conference for the first time following Saturday night's win over the Blues in Timaru.

Blackadder says their mental approach hasn't changed much all season and as far as their game is concerned he is happy about how they're developing, despite blowing a couple of scoring chances against the Blues.

The Crusaders will be without Sonny Bill Williams for their final match against the Hurricanes in Wellington on Saturday night. A win will seal first place in the New Zealand conference and a home playoff.
