nemNemani Nadolo put up another impressive performance for the Crusaders against the Blues last night.

The Flying Fijians star helped the Crusaders beat the Blues 28-13 in Christchurch to claim their first win of the Super Rugby season.

Nadolo had a powerful game on the wing with some storming runs beating several would be tacklers.

The Crusaders scrum was dominant from the outset and led to a penalty try to the hosts as they took a 13-3 half-time lead.

Number eight Kieran Read scored in the 68th minute and first-five Richie Mo’unga dotted down on the stroke of full-time.

Mo’unga, who iced the win with an intercept try in the last minute, also kicked three penalties and two conversions.

Read’s try came on the back of a strong run from big up the middle of the field and sending the Blues fullback Matt Duffy sprawling with a powerful fend.

Wing Tevita Li scored the Blues only try, with first-five Matt McGahan and replacement Ihaia West kicking a penalty each.

The Crusaders scrum was once again dominant with the Blues conceding numerous penalties at scrum time.

Both teams now have a win and a loss from their first two games
