6:07 am on 22 April 2012

The Crusaders have crushed the Hurricanes 42-14 in their round 9 super rugby match in Wellington

New Zealand's record points scorer Dan Carter marked his 100th appearance by running in the second of his side's five tries as the Crusaders cruised to a bonus-point win over a woeful Wellington side.

The Crusaders were too powerful around the field and lead 32-7 at the break.

The victory, their fifth from eight games, moved the Crusaders above the Hurricanes into third in the New Zealand conference.
