The Reds players were rightly thrilled with when the full-time whistle blew last week and they had secured only their second win of the season, a 30-17 victory over the Cheetahs. Reality would have no doubt hit soon after as the challenge set before them, to secure their first back to back victory since round 17 of 2014, was looming large.

The Crusaders have been steamrolling their opponents having bounced back from an opening round loss to record seven wins in a row. This mighty Crusader franchise hasn’t done that since 2008 which says much about the quality of this year’s team. Coming off the bye, and despite the absence of Nemani Nadolo who is currently serving a four week suspension, the Crusaders are flying high and matching the trail blazing Chiefs at the front of the pack.

Any relief the Reds may have had in Nadolo’s absence has been countered but the injury to their own blockbusting Fijian, in Samu Kerevi. Kerevi has been in incomparable form of late and you can guarantee the Crusaders are breathing a sigh of relief because he’s out.

If injury has cursed them, the Reds don’t exactly have history on their side either. The Crusaders have not lost to the Reds at home in their last eight meetings. In fact the last time the Reds won v the Cru on the road, their Executive General Manager for the Reds, Dan Herbert, was playing outside centre; QRU Board Member Mark Connors was packing in at lock, whilst current C0-Interim Head Coach, Nick Stiles, still hadn’t featured in Super Rugby (with his debut to come the following week against the Stormers). So….it’s been a while.
