Super rugby reaches the third round this weekend and the first match of the week is in Auckland where the Blues host the Crusaders.

The Blues are currently ranked higher than the defending champion Crusaders but that could well change as the Crusaders have won their last ten matches against the Blues.

Overall the Stormers lead the Super rugby standings following by the Chiefs and then the Brumbies. The Stormers have played two matches and have yet to concede a point. How long can that last ?

In last place are the Waratahs and just above them are the Highlanders who admittedly have only played one match.

There are five teams – the Reds, Rebels, Waratahs, Bulls and Highlanders  – who have yet to win a match. The other ten teams have all won at least one match.
