The match of the round kicks off from 5:35 AEST between the Crusaders and the Highlanders from Christchurch Stadium. We’ll have live scores for the clash between the South Island combatants.
The fifth-placed Crusaders are coming off a bye and have often struggled getting back into rhythm after a week-off. They did punish the Blues last-start. All Blacks No.8 Kieran Read is back from injury to ensure all their stars are on deck. They need to win to stay in the top 6.
It’s a tough ask for the visiting Highlanders who must win to jump back into the top six. They’re coming off the shorter six-day break as well.
However, they have won their last two against the men from Canterbury. English international James Haskell returns from suspension in one of four changes to the Highlanders forward pack, including fit-again No.8 Nasi Manu.
A torrid battle is ensured, and it’s too important for the Crusaders not to win, and at home in front of a sold-out crowd – including an extra temporary seating bay set up.
The Crusaders should win and consolidate a top six spot with a finals berth looking more assured. Crusaders by five.
