Show Preview

The Crusaders go head-to-head with the Highlanders to wrap up the penultimate round of Super Rugby Aotearoa. Join The Roar for live scores from 1:35pm (AEST).

The Crusaders are just one win away from being crowned the inaugural champions of the Aotearoa competition. Do the job over the Highlanders today and it’ll be their fourth trophy in as many years.

The Highlanders are out of title contention following last week’s loss to the Blues, but will have the support of every rugby fan outside of Christchurch hoping for a defining last round next weekend. A win for the visitors is the only way the season stays alive right to the end.

Unlikely as that is, the men from Dunedin gave the Saders a mighty scare when they met five weeks ago, a late burst by the ladder-leaders blowing the scoreline out beyond a fair reflection of the match.

Of course, this match will be played in Christchurch, and the Crusaders welcome back two key players in Brayden Ennor and prop Joe Moody. Josh Ioane was out injured in the Round 4 clash between these two sides, but he’ll line up at no.10 today, a tough ask going up against the in-form Richie Mo’unga.
