QUEENSLAND was sunk by two late Tom Taylor penalty goals which saw the Crusaders win 15-11 in a titanic clash in Christchurch on Sunday afternoon.

The Reds had led 11-9 with less than 10 minutes on the clock in what was a re-match of last year's Super Rugby final, but two penalties deep inside their half gifted Taylor the chance to put the Crusaders ahead for good.

The visitors scored the only try of the match through hooker James Hanson in the second minute of play, prior to the Crusaders assuming a 6-5 lead at half-time.

"Both teams made a lot of mistakes but ours tended to cost us a little bit more," Reds number eight Scott Higginbotham said.

Higginbotham admitted the Reds' error rate had much to do with the intensity of the clash.
