Out of the last five Super Rugby matches between the Christchurch based Crusaders and Johannesburg’s Lions the Crusaders have won all five matches.

Overall the Crusaders have played the Lions 15 times since 1998 and the Crusaders have won 12 matches and lost three.

The average score when the Crusaders play the Lions is : Crusaders 36 Lions 25.

This weekend the match will be played in Christchurch so the Crusaders will have home advantage as they have done on 7 occasions.

In those seven matches the teams have played five matches in Christchurch and two in Nelson and the Crusaders have won 6 matches and lost one.

The Crusaders only home loss to the Lions came in a match played in Nelson in 2001 when the Lions won by one point at 31-32.

This means that the Crusaders are unbeaten by the Lions in Christchurch and in their home city they have a 100% record.

The average score in Christchurch when the teams play is Crusaders 45 Lions 22.

In terms of form the Crusaders have not had the best form this season and in their last outing they were beaten by the Chiefs with a record score and conceded five tries for the first time in the two team’s history.

The Crusaders started the season with a loss at home to the Rebels but then in the next week they beat the Highlanders in Dunedin by simply getting the job done – nothing fancy.

Their third match was against the Chiefs and last week they had the bye. This week the Crusaders will be at near full strength as they will have a number of returning All Blacks including Kieran Read, Sam Whitelock and Dan Carter. Nemani Nadolo who was last year’s joint top try scorer is also back.

The Lions have also not had the best form this season as they lost their first three matches but then last week they beat the Blues. The Lions spent much of the match defending their line waiting for the Blues to make a mistake and when they did the Lions scored. It’s difficult to say whether the Lions were good or the Blues were bad last week.

The Lions have retained the starting line up that beat the Blues for this week so one can expect a similar game plan this week from the Johannesburg side.
