The Chiefs and Crusaders get week 17 of Super Rugby underway in what is sure to be a preview of what we can expect in the play-offs in a few weeks’ time.

The Chiefs have already secured a spot in the playoffs, and with the Crusaders losing to the Hurricanes last weekend, they have all but secured top spot of the New Zealand conference, and most likely top spot of the overall log as well.

The Crusaders, following their shock defeat, have a bit to do now as they have tough encounters waiting for them in final two weeks, and a loss this morning could spell an away play-off match, or potentially even not making the playoffs at all.

This match should be a cracker, with both teams having it all to play for.

Chiefs: 1. Sona Taumalolo,2. Mahonri Schwalger,3. Ben Tameifuna,4. Craig Clarke (C),5. Brodie Retallick,6. Liam Messam,7. Sam Cane,8. Alex Bradley,9. Tawera Kerr-Barlow,10. Aaron Cruden,11. Asaeli Tikoirotuma,12. Sonny Bill Williams,13. Andrew Horrell,14. Tim Nanai-Williams,15. Robbie Robinson

16. Hika Elliot,17. Toby Smith ,18. Romana Graham,19. Tanerau Latimer,20. Brendon Leonard,21. Jackson Willison,22. Lelia Masaga

Crusaders: 1. Ben Franks, 2. Corey Flynn, 3. Owen Franks, 4. Luke Romano, 5. Samuel Whitelock, 6. George Whitelock, 7. Richie McCaw (c),8. Kieran Read, 9. Andy Ellis , 10. Dan Carter (vc), 11. Zac Guildford, 12. Ryan Crotty, 13. Robbie Fruean, 14. Adam Whitelock, 15. Israel Dagg,

Replacements : 16. Quentin MacDonald, 17. Wyatt Crockett, 18. Tom Donnelly ,19. Matt Todd ,20. Willi Heinz,21. Tom Taylor ,22. Sean Maitland

  • Hmmm Crusaders scrum under pressure. That`s not good news if you look at the long term picture.

    Bulls will have an advantage there. :evil:
