The Crusaders and Hurricanes start off our Saturday rugby with a tough New Zealand derby in Wellington, the Crusaders coming off a good win over the Stormers last weekend and the Hurricanes coming off a bye.

The Hurricanes have had a decent start to the season, better than most expected, and currently lie in third spot on the New Zealand conference, above the Crusaders in fourth. Beauden Barrett has been a revelation this year, not only with the kicking boot but in getting his backline away, with Smith, Jane and Taylor feeding off his ball.

The Crusaders have continued with Dan Carter at centre, with Tom Taylor, who had such a great match against the Stormers, still wearing the flyhalf jersey. There is still no sign of Richie McCaw, who will only return from his lay off in three or so weeks.

Hurricanes: 1. Ben May,2. Dane Coles,3. Jeffery Toomaga-Allen,4. Jeremy Thrush,5. Jason Eaton,6. Faifili Levave,7. Karl Lowe,8. Victor Vito,9. TJ Perenara / Chris Eaton,10. Beauden Barrett,11. Julian Savea,12. Tim Bateman,13. Conrad Smith (c),14. Cory Jane,15. Andre Taylor

Replacements : 16. Motu Matu’u,17. Michael Bent ,18. James Broadhurst,19. Jack Lam / Mark Reddish,20. Chris Eaton / Frae Wilson,21. Tusi Pisi,22. Alapati Leiua

Crusaders: 1. Wyatt Crockett 2. Corey Flynn, 3. Ben Franks, 4. Tom Donnelly, 5. Samuel Whitelock, 6. George Whitelock, 7. Matt Todd, 8. Kieran Read, 9. Andy Ellis, 10. Tom Taylor, 11. Zac Guildford, 12. Dan Carter, 13. Robbie Fruean, 14. Adam Whitelock, 15. Israel Dagg.

Reserves: 16. Quentin MacDonald, 17. Owen Franks, 18. Luke Romano, 19. Luke Whitelock, 20. Willi Heinz, 21. Ryan Crotty, 22. Tom Marshall.

Referee: Craig Joubert
Assistant Ref 1:Glen Jackson
Assistant Ref 2:Mike Fraser
TMO:Bryce Lawrence

  • Picked the Canes by 3. The Saders like the Sharks are not performing like we know the should.

  • Gotta feel for the Canes. Called back for a forward pass in a scoring position, then refs miss TWO similar consecutive forward passes on the way to the Saders scoring.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 41) : a lot of things, the dynamics of us far from home, they on the back of a loss, their type of open running rugby we struggle to contain, and the they were lucky that the 50/50 calls went their way…..
