OPINION: Another week, another win for the Crusaders, but the exciting aspect for Scott Robertson would be the performance of his 'second-tier' players.
Braydon Ennor has been simply superb in his two 2018 starts, but the introduction of Will Jordan on the weekend just shows the type of class the red-and-blacks have at their disposal.
Ngani Laumape flexed his World Cup muscles against the Brumbies, while Ardie Savea is showing that a Kieran Read injury might not be as catastrophic in 2019.
All-in-all, there were some outstanding performances to savour in week three.
Electric in his first Super Rugby start, the 21-year-old has 'future All Black' written all over him.
Could be the quickest player in NZ, very busy on the right-wing.
One of the best on the park at Suncorp, a complete performance.
A happy homecoming for the blockbusting Manawatu midfielder, with three great tries.
The Chiefs are horrible, but Nanai-Seturo has been the shining light.
Controlled the game brilliantly in his first match of the season. Mo'unga is right there though.
Some magnificently tricky passes that all seemed to come off.
Harder to put down than 'Old Yeller', a brute with ball in hand and a menace at ruck time.
Matched David Pocock at the breakdown, not many people can say that.
Dropped the ball over the line for the potential match-winning try, but that shouldn't detract from another outstanding display.
Has really stood out, while Sam Whitelock has been chilling out at home.
Continues to impress, despite the Blues' struggles.
A great job in the scrum yet again against a highly rated Reds front row.
This team-of-the-week regular had an absolute blinder, doing everything that only Coles can do.
Super Rugby's strongest man is an immovable force.
