Super Rugby champions Crusaders are one win away from retaining their title after cruising to a 30-12 win over the Hurricanes in their semi-final.
The Crusaders opened the scoring with a converted try from fly-half Richie Mo'unga but this was almost immediately cancelled out by Julian Savea's finish for the Hurricanes.
George Bridge's 15th try of the season restored the hosts' lead just before the half-hour mark. Two penalties from Mo'unga handed the Crusaders an 18-7 lead at the break.
David Havili scored at the start of the second half for the Crusaders to give them a commanding lead and a score from replacement Braydon Ennor rounded off the win before a late try from Ben Lam for the visitors.
Mo'unga was in exceptional form for the Crusaders and he made his mark on the game early on as he sped away to score under the posts before converting the try.
The Hurricanes produced an immediate response though with winger Savea grounding the ball in the corner to level the contest.
