This is what the Blues are going to do the Crusaders this weekend

The Blues will be drawing from the spirit of the old Blues Ballers from the past who humiliated the Crusaders in the early 2000s. The men from Auckland take on the Crusaders this weekend in the big match.

It would be hard to look past the Crusaders who have been so dominant in recent years.

However, fans will live in hope that their team can do the unexpected as they remember what Carlos Spencer and his team of mavericks did the Crusaders in 2004.

When they played in Christchurch in 2004, the men in Blue won 38-29, however it was this try from Spencer that enraged and amazed rugby fans around the world.

Spencer and Rokocko combined well to score, but it was the celebration from the 10 that is the peak of rugby arrogance…

After Spencer crossed the try line, he and his team, rather than touch the ball down, decided to walk all the way into the corner of the pitch to ensure the humiliation of the Crusaders was complete.

If Dan Carter and Beauden Barrett do this to the men in red on Saturday then all hell will break loose in Super Rugby Aotearoa!

Does this have to be one of the most iconic moments in Super Rugby history?

In typically flamboyant fashion Spencer, rather than run down the clock in the dying moments, instigated a 100m movement by flinging an audacious pass on his own tryline and then completed the daring attack by casually strolling to the corner of the in-goal zone to dot the ball down.
