Crusaders coach delighted

11:12 am on 22 July 2013

The Crusaders coach says the comprehensive 38-9 Super Rugby preliminary final win against the Reds was set up by the attitude displayed during the week.

Todd Blackadder says he's delighted the whole team is playing well and is displaying great determination.

The Crusaders will face the Chiefs in the semi-finals in Hamilton.

In regards to whether Richie McCaw has earned a start in the semi after a cameo in Saturday night's romp, Blackadder says he would resist the urge to make changes for the sake of changes.
