The last game of the weekend, and another Sunday match for the Crusaders as they host the Reds in what should be a cracking match, a replay of the 2011 Super Rugby final.
The Crusaders side has really hit form over the last few weekends, coming off a few consecutive wins that is slowly getting them back into the familiar top spots on the log. Their team is unchanged from the side that beat the Waratahs last weekend, and will hope to make it a double over Australian sides in two weeks.
The Reds come off a good win over the Blues last weekend, and are also slowly building their season as they have struggled with injuries. Their climb up the log is sure to end today as the Crusaders will simply be too strong for them.
