This was the Highlanders' second defeat in three matches, while the Crusaders have dropped one – to the Chiefs – in four. Prior to Havili's try the Highlanders' comeback was led by halfback Aaron Smith, the Highlanders' most dangerous attacking weapon when he decided to put his boot away and back himself or the unmarked teammate next to him. It was some turnaround because until halftime it was all the Crusaders, although they were assisted by some substandard defending.
