MELBOURNE - The Melbourne Rebels fell to their second successive loss as the Crusaders flexed their Super Rugby muscle with a 25-19 win at AAMI Park on Friday night.

The Rebels were hopeful of rebounding from a heavy loss to the Western Force and while they delivered a much-improved performance, couldn't get the better of the Crusaders.

Centre Tom Taylor proved his value with the boot, slotting a faultless six penalties and one conversion to give the Crusaders two wins from four games heading into the bye.

In an arm wrestle of a first half, neither side was able to cross the tryline, with Taylor kicking his team to a 12-9 lead, while fullback Jason Woodward collected the Rebels' points.

They had plenty of possession but too often the Rebels released the pressure valve on the Crusaders with an error or poor kick while a rocketing penalty count did them no favours.
