We get our Super Saturday started with a wonderful New Zealand derby where the Crusaders, back from their South African tour and carrying an abuntant amount of injuries, taking on a resurgent Chiefs team that shocked all rugby supporters in beating the Stormers last weekend.

For the Crusaders, they have Freuan back in the centres after leaving him out in the cold wing last weekend and where he had little impact, but are without Sonny-Bill Williams. Dan Carter will be hitting his straps in his second game back from injury, and so will Richie McCaw, after his lengthy lay off.

The Chiefs have had their backline hitting some form since the return to the team of Mills Muliaina and Richard Kahui. Stephen Donald has been in some pretty good form in the flyhalf position, and they bring into the team Nanai-Williams, who is an amazing goal kicker.

Kick off is at 09h40.

Crusaders – 15 Tom Marshall, 14 Brent Ward, 13 Robbie Fruean, 12 Ryan Crotty, 11 Zac Guildford, 10 Dan Carter, 9 Willie Heinz, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Richie McCaw (c), 6 George Whitelock, 5 Chris Jack, 4 Luke Romano, 3 Ben Franks, 2 Corey Flynn, 1 Wyatt Crockett.
Subs: 16 Quentin MacDonald, 17 Owen Franks, 18 Brad Thorn, 19 Joe Wheeler, 20 Steve Alfeld, 21 Matt Berquist, 22 Tu Umaga-Marshall.

Chiefs – 15 Mils Muliaina (c), 14 Tim Nanai-Williams, 13 Richard Kahui, 12 Dwayne Sweeney, 11 Sitiveni Sivivatu, 10 Stephen Donald, 9 Brendon Leonard, 8 Fritz Lee, 7 Sam Cane, 6 Liam Messam, 5 Romana Graham, 4 Craig Clarke, 3 Ben Afeaki, 2 Hika Elliot, 1 Sona Taumalolo.
Subs: 16 Aled de Malmanche, 17 Toby Smith, 18 Culum Retallick, 19 Taiasina Tuifua, 20 Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 21 Mike Delany, 22 Jackson Willison.

  • Wonder what happened to Super Saturday on SS1?

    What a brilliant way to start the weekend, even if they did focus more on horseracing and football than rugby . . .
