The first of four games this Saturday is a second New Zealand derby of the weekend, where the Blues take on the Chiefs in Auckland.

The Blues are playing for nothing but pride and potentially All Black selection as they have really disappointed this season, and will be hoping the season finishes off soon so that the building process for next season can start.

The Chiefs on the other hand have everything to play for, as they currently top the log and the New Zealand conference, but face a tough run in before the play-offs start, and will want to take as many points as possible as they try keep the top spot from the Crusaders, who are catching them at an alarming rate.

  • Halftime : Blues 20 Chiefs 20
    Both teams awarded yellow and white cards for tip tackles. The Blues have absolutely no luck to speak of.

  • @juba_fan (Comment 5) : Carefull what we wish for here.

    We might have a chance against the Chiefs. The Crusaders are in such good form nobody will take them in Christchurch at the moment. . .

  • @klempie (Comment 8) : No picks for the Chiefs on LMS. The guys know better than to pick a derby for LMS. :)

    That said, the highest number of picks is for the Sharks this weekend.
