The Rebels host the Crusaders in the second game of Super Rugby this morning, with the Rebels without a few key players and the Crusaders making use of the opportunity to rest some of theirs.

The Rebels are still without James O’Connor, as well as releasing Danny Cipriani from his contract prematurely, are left with Aussie Kurtley Beale taking over the reigns at flyhalf. They have been struggling for most parts of the season, and one will not expect much from them this morning.

The Crusaders started the season a little slow, but are hitting form ahead of the International break, and just need to keep beating the teams below them to stay in the playoff zone.Richie McCaw starts his first game of the season while the likes of Ben Franks, Andy Ellis, Kieran Read and Israel Dagg sit on the bench and will be sure to make an impact later in the game, if needed.

Rebels: 1. Nic Henderson, 2. Ged Robinson, 3. Rodney Blake, 4. Cadeyrn Neville, 5. Hugh Pyle (vc), 6. Tim Davidson, 7. Michael Lipman, 8. Gareth Delve (c), 9. Nick Phipps, 10. Kurtley Beale, 11. Cooper Vuna, 12. Lachlan Mitchell, 13. Mitch Inman, 14. Mark Gerrard, 15. Julian Huxley.

Replacements: 16. Adam Freier, 17. Jono Owen, 18. Al Campbell, 19. Ryan Hodson, 20. Nic Stirzaker, 21. James Hilgendorf, 22. Stirling Mortlock.

Crusaders: 1. Wyatt Crockett 2. Corey Flynn 3. Owen Franks 4. Luke Romano 5. Samuel Whitelock 6. George Whitelock 7. Richie McCaw (C) 8. Luke Whitelock 9. Willi Heinz 10. Tom Taylor 11. Zac Guildford 12. Dan Carter (VC) 13. Robbie Fruean 14. Sean Maitland 15. Tom Marshall

Replacements : 16. Ben Funnell 17. Ben Franks 18. Tom Donnelly (Ross Kennedy) 19. Kieran Read 20. Andy Ellis 21. Ryan Crotty 22. Israel Dagg

  • Wonderful upset result. This is what the rather flat Super rugby needs an injection of. C’mon Cheetahs, you can do it too!

    Now, the ball is entirely in the Sharks court. Win today with a bonus point and you will overtake two teams and go straight into the play-off positions, and only 1 point behind the Crusaders in 5th place.

    It’s all up to you Sharks, and how much you want it. The fans want nothing less than a bonus point win over this Force rabble.

    A late season rally will see Plumtree get a stay of execution and I don’t want that.
