WGM’s tip for 28 February: Canterbury Crusaders

Written by Ben Blaschke

Just one week into the 2014 Super 15 Rugby season and already the pressure is on two of New Zealand’s big guns in the Auckland Blues and Canterbury Crusaders after opening week losses last weekend.

Rest assured there will be no love lost between them at Eden Park either as they slug it out to score that crucial first win. The Blues enjoyed a big victory in the corresponding clash here 12 months ago, but they eventually finished six places lower than the Crusaders who continued a remarkable run of 12 consecutive finals finishes.

The return of captain Kieran Read is a huge boost for the visitors and if they play to their potential their forward pack should be far too strong for the Blues.
