The Crusaders have named a strong side to face the Waratahs in which will undoubtedly be the match of the weekend. Much hyped All Black centre Sonny Bill Williams will finally be making his Super Rugby debut this weekend.

The match will be played at Trafalgar Park in Nelson after the pitch in Christchurch was damaged following the earthquake that hit the area. The players will also be wearing special jersey that will auctioned to raise funds.

Williams will partner up with Canterbury teammate Robbie Fruean in the midfield to form a 230kg centre combination. We will have to wait and see if the hype surrounding this combo will live up to expectations.

Crusaders team :

1. Wyatt Crockett ,2. Corey Flynn ,3. Owen Franks ,4. Brad Thorn ,5. Sam Whitelock,6. George Whitelock ,7. Matt Todd ,8. Kieran Read (Capt),9. Andy Ellis ,10. Daniel Carter ,11. Adam Whitelock,12. Sonny Bill Williams,13. Robbie Fruean,14. Sean Maitland,15. Israel Dagg

Reserves: 16. Quentin MacDonald,17. Ben Franks,18. Chris Jack,19. Jonathan Poff,20. Willi Heinz,21. Matt Berquist,22. Tom Marshall

  • Waratahs will see what the rest of SANZAR can do this weekend and they will end the round still on 10 log points.

    The Crusaders have a draw to catch up points from and they will be starting this weekend.

    SBW is going to be fun to watch.

  • Carter was not up to his usual best against the Blues. No McCaw either. Saders have have only played one game two weeks back. How will that affect them? Tahs are battle hardened already. Then think Saders will want to win this not only for themsleves, but their people in Chch.

    Tough call this. So not sure, but think Saders by a few.

  • @shaniboi (Comment 19) : You are so right. Imagine being the team that thrashes the Saders after what has happened to Christchurch! Talk about guilt trip! Have a feeling that the sheer willpower and outpouring of sympathy of a few million Kiwis will help to spur the Saders on to victory. Don’t envy the Tahs one bit!
