Ant Strachan: Ryan Crotty the "critical ingredient in our backline"

Former All Blacks halfback Ant Strachan joins the Breakfast team to talk about the All Blacks big 63-0 win over Canada at the Rugby World Cup.

New Zealand ran rampant for the opening 58 minutes of play, but took their foot off the pedal with a scoreless final period.

It was a first start for Rieko Ioane since the Bledisloe Cup test in Perth, and he marked the occasion with a try.

Strachan says the game didn't suit Ioane which led to him having a somewhat messy night, but with a game played in hot conditions, it would've been hard for anyone to play at their best.

Strachan adds that all four midfielders are viable when it comes to the important matches, but feels Ryan Crotty is the glue in the backline.
