The table topping Hurricanes, host the seven times Super Rugby Champions the Crusaders in Wellington on Saturday, in what is the top match of the weekend in the 2015 tournament. The Hurricanes are currently a single point ahead of fellow countrymen the Chiefs at the top of the table., although they also have a game in hand. The Canes solitary loss this season came in Round 10, when the Waratahs beat them on their own soil. However, they did manage to get back to winning ways in the last round, with a comfortable try-scoring bonus point victory against the Reds.

They have had an outstanding season so far, but the Hurricanes have a potentially huge banana skin of a run in, and their season could just as easily fall apart before the end of season play-offs, as end in triumph. They still have home and away fixtures against both the Crusaders and the Chiefs.

The two games against the Canes are vital to the Crusaders season. Currently in fourth place in the New Zealand Conference, only two of their remaining six games are in Christchurch. However, it will be something of a surprise if the visitors improve on their recent head to head with the Canes, who have won four of the last five encounters between the two teams.

The fixture list has thrown up a huge Kiwi derby upon the resumption of Super Rugby after the three week International break with the Hurricanes hosting the Crusaders at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Saturday. While both sides will be desperate to secure a victory, it is even more imperative for the home side, as they trail their opponents, who currently head the New Zealand Conference, by four points, and have played a game more.

The Hurricanes regular skipper, Conrad Smith is ruled out by injury, and the leadership of the side passes to Jeremy Thrush, and his centre position being taken by Tim Bateman. Blade Thomson is selected in the starting XV, with Brad Shields replacing the injured Faifili Levave in the back row. Todd Blackadder recalls eight All Blacks returning from International duty, to the Crusaders team for the vital clash, and has the enviable selection of naming Dan Carter on the replacements bench.

With two home games to finish the regular season, against the Blues and the Highlanders, the Crusaders will fancy that a result in Wellington on Saturday should set them up to clinch the Kiwi Conference. While defeat for the Canes will almost certainly mean they miss out on the post season play-offs.
