This weekend’s round of Super Rugby kicks-off with a tantalising clash in Wellington when the Hurricanes host the Chiefs. The last seven matches in the capital have all gone to the Hurricanes although the last three years have all seen close matches.
On Saturday the Crusaders square off against the Blues at AMI Stadium in Christchurch. This is revenge time for the Crusaders who lost to the Blues at Eden Park earlier in the season. The Crusaders don’t tend to be nice guys at home, and last time the Blues went down there they were dismembered by 50 points.
Finally, it doesn’t get any easier for the Highlanders who take on the Bulls in Pretoria. The Highlanders have a record as good as anyone’s at Pretoria, though (4-4-1 over the years), and that includes a few upsets. It would take another upset for them to get up this time in this top-vs-bottom clash.
