The match of the weekend kicks off our Saturday rugby viewing, with ex champs the Crusaders taking on the current overall leaders in the Stormers in a huge encounter. Both teams will want the four points from this match, the Crusaders to get back at the top of their conference, and the Stormers to keep their unbeaten record intact.

The Crusaders have shifted Dan Carter to the midfield in order to play Tom Taylor at flyhalf, with Ryan Crotty again being the player to miss out while Dan Carter eases back into the thick of things. The Crusaders are to be without their captain Richie McCaw for at least another month as he recovers from injury, with Read continuing the captaincy duties.

The Stormers come off a good opening win on their tour, and will keep the momentum for this must win match in their eyes, as they chase their first Super Rugby title, and we all know the best way to win it by playing all your playoffs at home. Gio Aplon is replaced by Gerhard van den Heever for the away team, after sustaining a minor injury against the Highlanders last weekend. The front row also sees the return of Brok Harris.

  • These Stormers are good. Still say they have already booked themselves a place in the final. Thought the ref was not good and cost the Stormers.
