In terms of form the Crusaders have played 7 matches so far this year and they have won four and lost three.
Last week they beat the Sharks 10-52 but before all of the cards came out the Crusaders were leading 3-28 so they had the match won at that time.
The Highlanders had a bye last week but before the break they beat the Stormers 39-21 at home. The Highlanders have played 6 matches to date and won four. They have only played one match away from home and won that 17-20 against the Chiefs.
The Highlanders have retained the team that beat the Stormers as they scored five tries against one of the tightest defences in Super Rugby.
The Crusaders have made three changes for this week and put Dan Carter and Richie McCaw on the replacements bench. The Crusaders back line is unchanged so they will be hoping to enjoy some similar line breaks as they did last week.
The Crusaders will have home advantage this week but they will have to deal with the jet lag and fatigue of having to fly back from South Africa. Having two All Black legends on the bench as impact players will no doubt help.
