We see three Saturday matches, with the first being a New Zealand derby to whet the appetite for what is to come later in the say. The table topping Chiefs take on the Hurricanes, who have scored the most tries in the competition so far, so it should make for an interesting game.

The Chiefs are back home following their three week tour, which included two victories in South Africa, and with more home games left than away games, this team will only go from strength to strength. Tim Nanai Williams returns on the wing and joins Masaga and Horrell in making up the back three. The centres Williams and Kahui will hope to be more effective than in their last game against the Sharks, where they were targeted and taken out of the game. The Chiefs are without the in from Kerr-Barlow at scrumhalf, and have opted for the experience of Leonard over the youth and excitement of Augustine Pulu.

The Hurricanes welcome back the attacking prowess of TJ Perenara and Cory Jane in the backline, and along with try scoring machine Andre Taylor, will hope to put a few past their New Zealand conference leaders. After their sound beating at the hands of the Crusaders last weekend, the Canes would have focused on defence as their attack seems to work really well, but leaking too many points costing them games.
