With a World Cup year in the rearview mirror, plenty of All Blacks moving on and a high-profile player move, the New Zealand conference will again make for compelling viewing this Super Rugby season.
The Crusaders will take on the Jaguares in the Super Rugby final, with the top two sides set to battle it out for the right to be crowned champions. This is The Roar’s complete guide to the game.
Kick-off is scheduled for 5:35pm (AEST) on Saturday, July 6, with the game to be played at AMI Stadium in Christchurch.
The time difference between Australia and New Zealand means kick-off will be at 7:35pm local time, while Argentinian fans can tune into the action from 4:35am on Saturday morning local time.
The Jaguares qualified for the final by thumping the Brumbies last weekend at home, while the Crusaders survived their semi-final by the skin of their teeth.
