The Crusaders have beaten the Jaguares by 19-3 to win their 10th Super Rugby title.
This was also their third title in a row matching their achievement of 1998‑2000, and further cementing their undisputed status as the competition's pre‑eminent team.
It was also special triumph for coach Scott Robertson as he became the first coach to win three titles in a row.
The cold, slippery conditions in Christchurch turned the decider into a defence‑dominated contest, which would always be won by the team who took their opportunities best.
Crusaders hooker Codie Taylor scored the only try in the game while Crusaders playmaker, Richie Mo’unga scored 14 points.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
