The final game for Easter weekend, and quite a game we have coming with the Bulls taking on the Crusaders, two formers champion teams currently struggling to dominate, looking to pick up an important win tonight.
The Bulls come of a tough encounter against the Stormers in Cape Town last weekend, having lost to both the Blues and the Stormers now, will want to come away with at least four points against the travelling New Zealand team.
The Crusaders never looked like they hit top gear against the Lions last weekend, and will have to raise their game significantly to win against a hurting Bulls team back in front of their home crowd. The Bulls team is unchanged from the side that did duty in Cape Town.
