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.
1 Hull are under investigation by UEFA for possible breaches of financial fair play rules, it has been announced.The Tigers, who played in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League after finishing as runners-up in the FA Cup final, are among several new clubs who have had formal investigations into their finances opened by UEFA’s club financial control body (CFCB).The clubs involved will have to submit further information to the CFCB but face no immediate sanctions.In October, Liverpool were one of seven clubs who were absent from European competition last year who had investigations for possible financial fair play (FFP) breaches opened against them.UEFA’s rules dictate that losses must be restricted to £35.4m over a two-year window.Liverpool joined Monaco, Roma, Besiktas, Inter Milan, Krasnodar and Sporting Lisbon in being subjected to investigations relating to “potential break-even breaches” though the Reds are thought to be confident they will avoid any penalties.Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain were the clubs hit hardest by UEFA last season for breaching FFP rules – they were each fined £49m and handed restrictions on transfer spending and a reduction in Champions League squad size.City announced their financial results for last season earlier this week and are confident they will only have to pay £16million of the £49million fine after cutting their losses.
