Jonah Lowe bagged a hat-trick as the visitors ran in seven tries to four in ideal conditions, with both teams using a host of different players.None of the All Blacks in both squads were available for the contest.It left Crusaders coach Scott Robertson to blood 18 players who are yet to experience Super Rugby, while Northampton-bound Hurricanes mentor Chris Boyd also surveyed his depth.There were no apparent serious injuries suffered.The next assignment for both teams is next week’s Brisbane 10s tournament.Meanwhile the Highlanders have thumped the NSW Waratahs 55-29 in Queenstown.The home team hit back to lead 33-10 by the end of the second third, scoring four tries in that period.They led 50-10 at one stage in the final term, but NSW rallied and finished with five tries.

A lovely, weighted pass from De Bruyne, a cool, measured finish from Hazard, and Phil Jones defending like he’s never seen a football before in his life.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) July 14, 2018 Phil Jones chasing shadows. #WorldCup #BEL #ENG #BELENG pic.twitter.com/rcOCIBywgw— vs 🏴 Football Tweet (@Football__Tweet) July 14, 2018 Just imagined Phil Jones up against Kylian Mbappe and now I need a lie down.— Matthew Stanger (@MatthewStanger) July 14, 2018 Welcome Harry Maguire Goodbye Phil Jones. Make this happen Jose.— James. 🔴 (@mufcszn) July 14, 2018 England fans hope Phil Jones has played his last game for the Three Lions after his hapless display in Saturday’s World Cup third place play-off against Belgium.The Manchester United man proved just why he’s spent most of England’s run to the semi-finals in Russia on the bench with a performance that drew a strong reaction from the good people of Twitter.While they have kept just one clean sheet at the tournament, Gareth Southgate’s side have looked good at the back – with John Stones, Harry Maguire and Kieran Trippier earning rave reviews.It appears, though, that Phil Jones didn’t get the memo – as his mistake contributed to the Three Lions ending their tournament with a 2-0 defeat in the bronze medal match.He was at fault for Belgium’s second goal as, while the rest of the Three Lions defence were holding a practically perfect high line, for some reason Jones hung back to play Hazard offside and then allowed the Chelsea man to breeze through one-and-one and score past Jordan Pickford.It’s fair to say England and Man United fans were not please, not surprised, by his display…. Atleast if Phil Jones and Danny Rose knock on Southgates door to ask why they didn’t get games at WC… he just has to give them a DVD of today 😉— Andy Wood (@AndyWoodRadio) July 14, 2018 Phil Jones is representing England at a World Cup… Anything is possible kids… Dream big— Matt (@MattFUTTrading) July 14, 2018 “Phil Jones could of done better” think we’ve heard that a few times before— Vince Brackley (@haveyoueverseen) July 14, 2018 Anyone watching England right now will understand why Phil Jones shouldn’t be anywhere near our club or the international set up.— The Man Utd Way (@TheManUtdWay) July 14, 2018 Phil Jones. Please retire from international football. Thx.— Falkland Islands (@falklands_utd) July 14, 2018 😳 Aaaand that’s why Phil Jones has been on the bench…#BELENG#ThreeLions— The Sportsman (@TheSportsman) July 14, 2018 1 Phil Jones was run ragged by Eden Hazard on Saturday
