Why the Crusaders have the wood on the Stormers

This was interesting - there was quite a controversy in Cape Town over the Crusaders match last weekend.  Apparently there are a large number of supporters for New Zealand based Super Rugby sides, and the All Blacks

There have been a number of incidents of violence over the years, including some fights at the recent match which were seen on Television.

The Crusaders have had the wood over the Stormers throughout the last decade.  The Stormers seem to continually top the ladder, but lose in their home semi.  What's worse is that the WP president Thelo Wakefield says the behaviour of Cape-based New Zealand rugby supporters is why Saru no longer stages Tests between the Springboks and All Blacks at Newlands.

Then it gets stranger - it appears that the daughters of said WP President support the Crusaders

I can understand that there was some disgust against South African rugby teams during the apartheid era, as they were seen as symbols of apartheid.  Strange that it is still carrying on 20 years later.

Or, as some commentators put it, maybe they just love the style and flair (and good looks) of Daniel Carter!
