The Crusaders entertain the Hurricanes in Super Rugby Aotearoa at the Orangetheory Stadium on Saturday. The Crusaders have emerged victorious in all of their Super Rugby Aotearoa matches so far, while the Hurricanes have won their last three. I expect a tight encounter in Christchurch.

When they met a few weeks ago the Crusaders won 39-25 but it was level at 25-all until the final 10 minutes. 

Crusaders Form & News


The Crusaders have been their impressive selves in Super Rugby Aotearoa, winning all four of their fixtures to date.

Their first match of the competition saw them beat the Hurricanes 39-25 away from home, but the clash was a lot closer than the final score suggests. That result was followed up with an 18-13 home win over the Chiefs, and then a convincing 40-20 victory at the Highlanders.

The Crusaders' last game was an exciting one against the Blues in Christchurch. In what was a very tight match, the home side hit their straps in the final 10 minutes to win 26-15.

The Crusaders had a bye last weekend so should be at full strength this weekend. They have no reported injury concerns.

Hurricanes Form & News


The Hurricanes look to have put their inconsistency firmly behind them. After kicking off their Super Rugby Aotearoa campaign with two losses, they have managed to bounce back to win three in a row.

That winning run started with a 26-18 victory over the Chiefs, before downing the Highlanders 17-11 in horrendous weather conditions. Last week, the Hurricanes took down the much-fancied Blues 29-27 at home. 

Dane Coles could return after missing last week through a calf injury.  Prop Fraser Armstrong and loose-forwards Reed Prinsep and Gareth Evans could also make a return this weekend.
