This is the match of the week. The two teams at the top of the table will battle it out in Christchurch at Jade stadium. Its the only match on Friday and what a match its going to be. A repeat of last year’s Super 12 final where the Waratahs lost.


They will want to get one over the Crusaders just for last year alone. The odds are on a Crusaders win because they are at home and the Waratahs have lost Mat Rogers.
