The Crusaders host the Chiefs in a Super Rugby Aotearoa clash on June 28 at the Orangetheory Stadium. In what is always a titanic battle I believe the Crusaders will be too strong against a Chiefs side that has shown great inconsistency in 2020.

Crusaders Form & Team News


The Crusaders won five of their six matches in 2020 Super Rugby before the break. They then bounced straight into Super Rugby Aotearoa with a win in their first match.

Despite their one defeat of the season coming against the Chiefs, the Waikato-based side have not produced their best since. On the other hand the Crusaders have shifted from one comfortable victory to another.

The Saders enjoyed a bye in the first week of Super Rugby Aotearoa and then beat the Hurricanes comprehensively 39-25 in Wellington last week.

Winger Sevu Reece got his season off to a flying start last weekend for the Crusaders and could well be worth a look in the try-scoring markets.

The Crusaders were pure class last weekend but we could see the likes of Luke Romano getting a start this weekend.

Chiefs Form & News


The Chiefs had a decent start to the 2020 Super Rugby, including a home 25-15 victory over the Crusaders in week two. Prior to the break they beat a hapless Waratahs side 51-14 in Sydney but then returned home and lost 27-24 against the Hurricanes.

On the resumption of the season in the form of Super Rugby Aotearoa the Chiefs heartbreakingly lost 28-27 to the Highlanders in Dunedin. Last week the Blues made them rue missed chances in Auckland as the Chiefs slumped to a 24-12 defeat.

Despite defeat the Chiefs are likely to stick with the same line-up. Aaron Cruden impressed upon his return at fly-half and should be retained.

Crusaders vs Chiefs Head to Head


The Crusaders and Chiefs share five victories each over their last 10 matches. The last time they met the Chiefs ran out 25-15 winners in Hamilton in February 2020.

Crusaders vs Chiefs Odds


The Crusaders are comfortable favourites at $1.25 while the Chiefs can be backed as outsiders at $4.00. A draw is priced at $26.00.

The handicap market is set at 10 points and pays $1.90 either way with bet365.

Crusaders vs Chiefs Match Up


This massive New Zealand derby has produced some classics over the years and this should be no different. Oddly enough in there is been more than 10 points between the two sides in eight of their last 11 clashes.
