Powerful New Zealand title challengers the Crusaders claimed an eighth successive Super Rugby win as they saw off the Reds 38-5 in Christchurch.

The bonus-point triumph underlined a rich vein of form, as Jone Macilai scored three of his team's six tries, while Scott Barrett, Jordan Taufua and Codie Taylor also touched down.

The Reds could only deliver a Campbell Magnay try in reply after the Crusaders raced into an early 14-point lead and never looked back.
