The Crusaders insist they have the firepower to go from last place in the Shop N Save Super Rugby standings to challenge for another title but concede a vast improvement is needed.

The seven-time defending champions slumped to the lowest rung on the ladder following an error-ridden 37-15 loss to the Western Force in Saturday’s clash of the competition’s two bottom-placed sides in Perth.

It was their seventh loss from eight matches.
