Our first derby of the day and we start with a nice New Zealand game, where the Crusaders need to win to take back the top of the New Zealand log from the victorious Blues.

Even though we have the Crusaders as being the home team above, the game is being played in Wellington, the home of the Hurricanes, which will help the yellow team significantly. The Hurricanes have peaked in the latter part of the season, being unbeaten in their last three games with two wins and a draw.

The Hurricanes will be bidding farewell two of their stalwarts in Ma’a Nonu and Andrew Hore, who have both been told that they are surplus to requirement for next season. The Crusaders, who had their fair share of injury worries, have had to select Ryan Crotty at 12 in place of an injured Sonny Bill Williams.

The game should be a good one so tune in around 09h40 for kick off.

  • Nonu’s had a fall out with Hammett. Sounds like a good reason to get rid of Hammett, why’s Nonu leaving???

  • Julian Savea has to be one of the biggest disappointments of the season.

  • @beet (Comment 4) : Nonu and Hore have been undermining Hammet in front of the players and it came to a head a few weeks ago after Nonu was spoken to about discipline and then during the match he threw the ball at the TJ when he was unhappy about some decision.

    Good call by management to show that the Canes won’t be turned into the Brumbies or Proteas where player power rules.

    PROVIDED Hammet is good enough to deliver the goods though.

  • @beet (Comment 4) : Just read on keo that Nonu might sign with Sharks for next year. Wonder if that is a rumour or for real?

    Think it is a mistake, we should be looking at our youngsters and start playing them next year.

    We have Jordaan and Sithole we should be looking at.

  • @Puma (Comment 12) : Im presuming it was a throw away comment by a reader rather than an article right? Would make no sense for either party.

  • @Pablo Dinero (Comment 16) : No go check at the top of keo. It is a tweet from him. So not sure if Nonu will be coming to Sharks or what.
