The Cheetahs continue their unfortunate tour with a visit to Christchurch
The Crusaders? They will be missing Dan Carter but will still be doing their best to go to the top of the S14 table with a convincing bonus point win over the Cheetahs.
The Cheetahs? Well their coach was in the press this week saying they can ambush the Crusaders.
Me? I will probabaly start cringing on the couch when the Crusaders go past 50 around the 60th minute.
