Crusaders named best team in Australasia

December 5, 2018

The Crusaders have been voted the most successful Australasian sporting franchise of the past 25 years.

This was the first time that the award had been given out.

To select the winner the committee analysed 122 teams across 14 competitions since 1993 and decided the nine-time Super Rugby champions were the best.

The Crusaders first won the Super Rugby competition in 1998, with their most recent success coming this year. They were the only New Zealand sporting side to make the top-25 list.

They beat out rugby league’s Brisbane Broncos and AFL’s Geelong Cats, who finished second and third, while the New South Wales Breakers cricket team were the highest-ranked women’s team in fifth.
