The Star 39 Sport Crusaders v Highlanders a grudge match to look forward to • By Patrick McKendry RUGBY FANS rejoice – Saturday’s first British and Irish Lions match of their tour has necessitated the scheduling of two rare afternoon Super Rugby matches for three Kiwi sides. And the first, the Crusaders v the Highlanders, could be a classic. The New Zealand Provincial Barbarians play the Lions in Whangarei at 7.35pm, a significant match in itself, and one with Mary Westwood M 021 557 731 P 03 347 4711 Four Seasons Realty Ltd Licensed Agent REAA 2008 Why not put me to the test As I do stand out from the rest If you’re ready to sell then so am I So go ahead give me a try!!! a perfect entree. The Crusaders meet the Highlanders at AMI Stadium at 2.35pm, while the Chiefs host the Waratahs in Hamilton at 5.05pm. The New Zealand derby will probably attract the most attention, according to the NZ Herald, given the Crusaders have won all of their 13 matches this season, while the Highlanders are on a nine-match streak. The Crusaders, with two round-robin matches remaining RoUnD 15 June 2 nd - 3 rd BLUES V REdS CRUSadERS V Four Seasons Realty Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi and 11 points up on the Hurricanes (who have a game in hand), are a good chance to retain top spot in the New Zealand conference, but will be desperate to beat the Johannesburg-based Lions as top team overall in order to qualify for a home final. The Highlanders will be keen to put a dent in the Crusaders finals hopes, all of which means it is a match of some importance. Said Highlanders coach Tony Brown: “To go and play the Crusaders in Christchurch in 2017 SUPER 18 TiPPing ComPETi T ion BRoUghT To yoU By ThE ChRiSTChURCh STaR hIghLaNdERS ChIEfS V waRaTahS BRUmBIES V REBELS fORCE V hURRICaNES BREnT JEffERiES A1 Auto BLuES CRuSADERS CHiEfS DRAw HuRRiCANES Thursday June 1 2017 O U R T I P S T E R S S E L E C T I O N S Specialists in: • Heating and Ventilation • Plumbing and Drainage • Maintenance and IQP • Medical Gases • Boilers and Chillers • Design and Engineering of Mechanical Services Pleased to be associated with Uretek and the Christchurch City Council mURRay DaviE Silver Dollar Bar BLuES CRuSADERS CHiEfS BRumBiES HuRRiCANES lEaDERBoaRD # NAmE wINS CORRECT ToTal 1 murray Davie 6 92 2 Richard Vernimmen 6 88 3 Jamie Harris 5 87 4 Paul (fish) Herring 6 85 5 Alex Newfield 4 83 6 Dave Browne 7 79 7 Brent Jefferies 5 77 8 mary westwood 3 72 DaviD BRownE David Browne Contracting BLuES CRuSADERS CHiEfS BRumBiES foRCE alEx nEwfiElD Newfield Roofing BLuES CRuSADERS CHiEfS BRumBiES HuRRiCANES front of a full stadium, where both teams are going to go hell for leather and throw the ball around and be really physical, it’s going to be an intense match. There’s no better way to finish before the [international] break.” The Crusaders, having taken pride in celebrating their fourth win in a different country in four weeks following victories over the Bulls in Pretoria, Hurricanes in Christchurch, Chiefs in Suva and Rebels in Melbourne, also took pleasure in beating the winning streak of 12 the franchise set under coach Robbie Deans in 2002. Significantly, coaches Scott Robertson and Leon MacDonald played for the Crusaders that title-winning season, something touched on by current assistant Brad Mooar: “It hasn’t been a major focus, but it has been something that we have been aware of; trying to create our own history, whilst also recognising that in the past. Now we look for the 14th,” he said.
