Bye comes at worst time for Crusaders

6:08 am on 14 March 2012

Good and bad news for the Crusaders rugby side.

The good news is that their new Christchurch stadium is good to go for their next Super Rugby home match against the South African side the Cheetahs next weekend (March 24).... while Dan Carter returned to training yesterday after his groin injury and he looks set to be available for that match.

However with 2 straight losses, the Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder says the bye has come at the worst possible to time for them.

Blackadder says uncharacteristic mistakes are hurting them.....
