Tahs unfazed by Crusaders record

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

SYDNEY - NSW Waratahs aren't worrying for a single second about their dreadful drought against the Crusaders going into Saturday's Super Rugby final.

The Waratahs have lost their past 11 encounters to the Crusaders, last tasting victory against the New Zealand Super power 10 years ago.

NSW coach Michael Cheika has had his charges focusing on positive thoughts this year, which means they aren't wasting any time thinking about their poor record against the Crusaders.

"We haven't thought about it at all," Waratahs' No.8 Wycliff Palu said.

"We've done a lot of mental work this year and that was one of the biggest keys, forgetting all that kind of stuff.

"Especially for us players and going out there and really enjoying ourselves."

Palu was relishing the prospect of renewing his rivalry with the great Crusaders and All Blacks back-rowers, Richie McCaw and Kieran Read.

The Waratahs star hasn't crossed paths with the famed duo in either Super or Test combat since 2012.
