The Super Rugby tournament starts today with a clash between the Crusaders and Chiefs at Eden Park, with a potential blockbuster game to follow.
The Chiefs have a game in hand on the Crusades at Eden, but are coming off a humiliating 3-1 loss to the Blues.
The Blues have won the last four Super Rugby matches, losing only once.
The Crusaders have won seven of their last eight meetings, but their opponents have not won the three other games they have faced in their last 11 games.
Their next game is on Saturday night, when they take on the Brumbies.
