The Cru' were very unlucky today and imho were robbed of a bonus point by  a spiteful last ditch kick  by Leigh who were well and truly rattled today.

Spiteful? Whilst the Crusaders played  very well and, as you say, rattled Leigh a bit, if Leigh have an opportunity to deny points to our competitors then we should and did do that. Did Crusaders deserve something from that game? Yes they did, but they lost a bit of focus/energy in the last 10 minutes and Leigh scored two quick tries and then were ruthless with a last second drop goal to deny a BP.


I don't think it was spiteful, it was professional and whilst I feel sorry for the Cru's leaving empty handed, Leigh are not going to give away bonus points to competitors if they can avoid it. I think Cru's were very close to a win/draw yesterday but when it became apparent (very late on) that it wasn't going to happen the concentration slipped for the last 2 minutes and they ended up with nothing. Harsh yes, spiteful no. IMO.
