Crusaders first win to come at Carter's expense?

Carter left the field with a corked knee, but Blackadder said the injury shouldn't be a concern.
The Crusaders don't start their campaign until Round Three this year, giving Carter and the team a couple of week's rest before a ten-week stretch until their next bye.
While the game was a stop start affair at times, Blackadder said that the work had already been done, it was just a case of getting on the field and putting into practice everything learned over the last two months of preseason training.
"We were pretty disjointed and pretty messy and for the last two weeks we've just been doing the same sort of thing," he said.
"You just try and play with some structure, try some moves."
"There's some things that need tweaking but nothing major, everything's in place."
