CRUSADERS v HURRICANES – click here to bet

The Crusaders are coming off a bye having won all 4 of their previous matches including a 14 point victory over the Hurricanes in Wellington.  Their two home matches have seen them beat the Blues by 11 and the Chiefs by 5 both of which were low scoring affairs.

The Hurricanes made a slow start to the Tournament, but have now won 3 on the trot and they edged the Blues in a thriller in Wellington last week, scoring a converted try to win 29-27.  Their two away fixtures have seen them beat the Chiefs in Wellington by 7 and go down by 10 points to the Blues in Auckland.

The Crusaders have won the last 5 head-to-heads in Christchurch, 2 of which were semi-finals.
